The heart of the Pilates method: matwork uses body weight and small props to create challenge that is scalable for every body. A dynamic, full body workout, matwork invites creativity and affords freedom in movement and flow.
We use a range of ‘props’ to enhance your workout adding variety and help challenge and motivate you towards achieving your goals. Props include Magic Circles, Thera-Bands, Hand & Ankle Weights, Gym Balls and Foam Rollers. We supply all fitness mats, towels & pillows to ensure your workout is safe, comfortable & the most effective for your body. Matwork Pilates focuses on core strength, pelvic and spinal stability, and developing balance and coordination.
It is recommended that new clients to our Mat classes start with a one-on-one mat session to learn the basic principles of Pilates, including the neutral spine position, the Pilates breathing technique and correct activation of your core muscles.
