Pilates Matwork Classes

Pilates Matwork is a very important version of the Pilates Method.  Pilates Matwork is taught in a clean airy space with air-conditioning if necessary in the warmer months and heated in the winter to take out the chill.

The classes of no more than 10 participants are challenging, fun and you'll develop a firm, strong and more flexible body.

Matwork classes are held in a small group – benefits are:

Joint Mobilisation, Balance, Strength, Core Stabilisation, Postural Awareness, Length

History of Matwork

Return to life outlined Joe’s Contrology exercises, a series of exercises to be performed on the Mat, beginning with his introductory lesson, The Hundred.  He believed that one should begin with this exercise and that each exercise should be mastered before proceeding progressively to the following exercise.  His Contrology exercises evolved from a personal or home practise routine into a ‘class’ type sequence in response to demand for his services outside of his fully equipped studio in New York and largely, thanks to the connections Pilates had in the dance community of the time.

My Take on Matwork...

I love Matwork... listen to the Pilates instructor and tune into your body.  Breathe, inhale, exhale. 

The instructors voice guiding you through Pilates exercises.  Working with your own body to activate, relax or just awareness in muscles groups without any feedback from equipment and relying on your proprioception – Where am I in space ?

When you are first starting Matwork it will require concentration and focus to coordinate how your body is moving.  It will get easier as time goes on and your alignment, strength, flexibility and awareness will change the way you move.

Pilates Matwork is a great complement to your Pilates Studio training, increasing Pilates training to more than just once per week.  

Embrace our mantra...  

"Breathe Better, Feel Better"

'Move Well, Age Well'

See you on the Mat
