No matter your stage in life, keeping fit is essential to doing the things you love with ease, power, and grace. In this class, you’ll cultivate body awareness and learn healthy functional movement strategies grounded in science such as hip hinging, a spine sparing technique.
If you have low bone density, weight-bearing exercises are included and safe mat variations will be offered. Incorporating the science of aging, we challenge our nervous system through fun movement brain games to develop new neural pathways that improve balance, fall response time and focus. We work on core, lower and upper body strength and we practice how to catch ourselves safely if we trip, to help prevent injury.
NEW! Capitalizing on the weather and our proximity to Cuesta park, we’ll begin class with 10 minutes of walking combined with upper body resistance band strengthening as we enjoy the aroma of the Tues. morning freshly cut grass. Expect improved posture, injury prevention, coordination, core strength, flexibility and balance with crossover benefits to your daily sports and activities. This class is appropriate for beginner to advanced intermediate active ager. To participate, you must be able to get up and down from a mat safely and independently. No prior Pilates experience necessary, just a willingness to learn and have fun.
