Pilates and Strength are a perfect combination. The micro detail and mobility-emphasis of pilates support the macro and compound movements in Strength Training.
Spend an afternoon in Armature's gym space, building confidence with Strength Training foundations (both bodyweight and barbell work) and applying that to Pilates matwork considerations and repertoire.
The session starts with a Pilates mat masterclass focusing on mobility and patterns relevant to Strength Training. Then experience various scaled versions of the squat, hip hinge and lunge (plus some bonus extras) in a Strength Training context. Finally, theory and discussion aligns the two modalities.
A great opportunity for personal Pilates practice, de-mystifying Strength Training and plenty of immediate ideas to implement into Pilates teaching.
