Pilates Challenge: Refining Performance of the Classical Exercises, Day 4
Pilates challenge, yes we continue to challenge ourselves in perfecting our exercise, practice and performance of each classical exercise, picking up today where we left off from day 3. Remember that today includes some very advanced exercises in the classical repertoire, so please be mindful to skip them if you are not ready for them in your own practice. Stepping stones are given. Continue to keep your focus centered and internal throughout class as we want to move from our center out. The challenge is less in the choreography and much more in the breath, concentration, precision, control, fluidity, and centering.
Equipment Needed :
Class Level :
Intermediate – Advanced presented (all depends on the exercise). Modifications (stepping stones) given for beginners.
The Course of this Class :
Roll Over – Though these 3 are at the beginning of day 1, we don’t want to start class with chest expansion, so every even numbered day we will use these 3 to warm us up and then we will pick up where we left off.
Balance Control on/off
Knee Stretch series: round, flat, off
Leg pull front
Leg pull back
