Pat 4 Pilates Yoga Fitness is located on Fairy Meadow Surf Club and Balgownie Community Centre. The classes are designed to achieve total body conditioning with low impact and safe pilates, yoga and fitness exercises.
It is important to learn and practice the Pilates principles of neutral spine (optimal posture) and activation of deep stabilising muscles (transversus abdominis and pelvic floor). This will help you to improve your core/body strength, flexibilty, balance and posture.
These are essential for good health and injury prevention. These principles should be applied in every Pilates movement. When performing a Pilates exercise it is important to keep your chin tucked in slightly, eyes and nose facing forwards and to breathe through your stomach.
It is a great idea to incorporate these principles in all of your Pilates exercises and to try and incorporate them in each session. This will help you to be more in tune with your body and make sure that you are performing each move correctly to get the most benefit. pilates fairy meadow
