From a teaching point of view we encourage everyone to connect with their breath and body as a whole as well as recognize isolated movement and muscle engagement.

Pilates can be a gentle form of exercise when first taught to beginners, with use of equipment used such as mats, balls, and reformers bands to help to client perform the exercises.

It is recommended that the first class be a private class for obese people so that the teacher can highlight any specifically areas or weaknesses that the client should think about in mind when joining group classes.
