Can I join classes even if I am a Pilates Beginner?
Most definitely! We will arrange for a Pilates orientation session for you, which is a Private (ONE-ON-ONE) The Pilates session with an experienced Pilates Instructor who will take you through some of the movements. You will learn what the Pilates lingo and terms are, as well as the correct posture during the movements and the correct muscle recruitment, so that you are well-versed beforehand and ready for your group class.
Is Pilates for Athletes?
Absolutely! Pilates is the ideal cross-training exercise method. Whether you are doing Weightlifting, HIIT (high intensity interval training), Cross-fit, or Dancing, our bodies are used to being exercised in the same repetitive planes, and the goal of Pilates is to strengthen those muscles that usually do not get the attention and will focus on stretching the muscles that are usually over-worked and well as focusing on mobility to increase your range. Pilates is all about bringing about a balance to the body in terms of strengthening and stretching muscle groups. This will ensure that you prevent injury.
Will Pilates increase my body awareness?
Yes, another benefit of Pilates is that it encourages you to stay in touch with your body and listen to your body as you build strength. Other strength training workouts like Weightlifting, Running, Cross-fit, Cricket, Soccer, Rugby, and Cycling, encourages a mentality of pushing your body to its limits. This means you might not always be listening to your body, making it easier to ignore your body cues. Pilates kind of re-educates you in terms of being mindful so that you can perform your sports and exercise with the correct posture and movements.
Is it like doing Pilates on a YouTube video?
No, it is not the same thing, being in studio allows for the instructor to correct your posture and movement to ensure injury is prevented. Here at Pilates Dynamics, we place a lot of emphasis on posture and movement correction making sure the client is activating the correct muscles in the correct posture.
