Renard J instructs the following:
- Pilates Matwork (1-2)
- Pilates Equipment (1-2)
Pilates is unique among exercise programs in its effectiveness at providing stability for the spine and the joints. It is an excellent practice on its own, but when combined with other practices like running, biking, and yoga, Pilates may totally change the way you approach these activities. Pilates Matwork focuses on a sequence of traditional and contemporary core routines, and often incorporates small props to add to the fun and challenge.
Mixed Level Pilates Equipment classes are appropriate for most levels of fitness. In Mixed Level classes, you will continue working to develop foundation Pilates skills, such as stability in the pelvis and low back and spinal elongation, in a variety of challenging contexts. You will also be introduced to new exercises that build shoulder stabilization and upper body strength and challenge your strength and coordination. Some experience with the Pilates Level 1 classes is highly recommended before enrolling in Mixed Level Classes.
