MAT PILATES

Type : RECOVERY/RELEASE

Our Mat Pilates class focuses on improving postural alignment, core strength, and muscle balance. It is a low-impact option and perfect for those sitting all day or for those recovering from high intensity training!

If you’re feeling stale, it might be time to try a new kind of class! Whether on a mat or a reformer, taking Pilates class is the perfect way to expand your fitness horizon. You can do this versatile exercise in a studio with fewer people or Pilates group classes.

Mat Pilates is a low-impact exercise that strengthens muscles while improving postural alignment and flexibility. Although it targets the core, it is vital to understand that the centre includes the abdominals, hips, thighs, and back. You can do pilates with or without equipment, but make sure to keep your movements slow, deep, precise, and practice breath control.

If you’re getting started with pilates and wonder whether to take mat classes or reformer ones, let us help you a little. While using equipment is practically symbolic of Pilates, it doesn’t mean that mat classes aren’t worth the time. Let’s re-discover the benefits of taking mat classes!

Mat Classes Covers the Basics

In mat Pilates classes, you learn the fundamental movement techniques from the neutral spine to an engaged core, c-curve, shoulder, pelvic stability, spinal circulation, and controlled breathing. Learning these skills on the mat with fewer materials to handle is easier. 

Helps Improve the Body & Mind

Pilates is intended to integrate and elevate your body, mind, and spirit. In our Pilates Class Brisbane, you’d learn the principles of centring, concentration, control, precision, flow, and breath. Giving this much attention and quality to your workout sessions helps to enhance your overall well-being, physically and spiritually.

Lets You Attain the Goals Faster

Following the Pilates movements rightly assist with toning, flexibility, posture, and building body and mind connection. You can reap just about every benefit from the reformer classes, and you can also reap from the simple mat workouts. Our mat workout at Athletix incorporates the classic sequence that provides the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits.

 

Joseph Pilates developed this exercise as a total package of health and vitality from which one can attain better posture, flat abs, and balanced muscularity. The best thing about Pilates is that there are countless ways to modify and adapt it depending on your weight, physical ability, fitness level, and whether you’re young or senior.

By practising Pilates regularly, one can create long and strong muscles. At Athletix, we offer Pilates Mat classes at the studio and online at home. In all our Pilates classes at Athletix, we promote flat abdominal muscles through exercises that emphasise the core strength, flexibility, and skeletal alignment.

We teach you how to use your core muscles in any sport. You develop strength and flexibility through core-powered muscular engagement and support the spine through graceful movements.

At Athletix, Sarah Kitcher, our pilates instructor, focuses on improving your postural alignment, core strength, and muscle balance. This low-impact option is perfect for those sitting all day or for those recovering from high-intensity training.

    No matter what workout you practice, performing it three times a week is a good guideline to stick by. While three pilates classes per week will certainly show the results by improving muscle strength, boosting mental health, and improving flexibility, it is not enough to reap the maximum Pilates benefits.

    If you want to get the most out of your Pilates practice, we recommend taking at least four to five classes every week. Doing this will help your body reach its fullest potential by giving you noticeable muscle definition, correcting wrong postures, restoring physical vitality, invigorating the mind, and elevating your overall well-being. 

    If you’re new to Pilates, you might wonder what to bring to the class. Most fitness centres provide pilates equipment, but you may take some of your own. Here are some things we suggest:
    • Water Bottle: It is always a good idea to stay hydrated when doing physical activity.
    • Bath Towel: Carrying a towel is suggested, especially when using more extensive gear equipment.
    • Other Stuff: For hygiene purposes, you may carry ankle and wrist weights, flex bands, a ring, and an exercise ball with you.

    When deciding what to wear to a Pilates gym, stick to form-fitting and stretchable clothes instead of loose ones. It helps the instructor assess your body alignment and symmetry to determine the improvement areas, which is not possible with baggy clothing. Besides, it allows you to exercise without restraint while keeping you comfortable.

    Everyone must stick to breathable, comfortable, lightweight, and modest clothing. We don’t recommend wearing shoes because Pilates focuses on movement and agility, and if you wear shoes, it might restrict your foot movements. But you’re free to wear socks if you want to. 

    Reformer Pilates is a method of movement done on a reformer, a system of springs and pulleys to allow an exercise to become more flexible and challenging. Whether elderly or young, anyone can take it as there is a modification for everyone. Reformer Pilates focuses on muscle building and body alignment. Here are a few things to expect from a Pilates exercise class:
    • Reformer Pilates integrative workout involves your core and whole body.
    • When you move in a controlled manner, there is no impact on the joints.
    • It helps you improve, achieve, and maintain a healthy body posture.
