Tone and Sculpt Your Whole Body
Classes Restart Tuesday 3rd Jan 21017, see you there.
Pilates is an effective exercise program for everyone. It realigns the body and retrains the back, stomach and pelvic floor muscles to work in harmony to create a strong core. All this improves posture, lengthening and toning muscles throughout the body, creating a fabulous silhouette in men and women. Pilates is also recommended by many doctors physical therapists and physiotherapists to rehabilitate and strengthen the back and its supporting muscles.
"Which class is suitable for me?"- How to pick the best class for you...
- Level 1 - suitable if you are a complete beginner, have attended a beginners workshop or around 5 hours of classes. You are learning the pilates principles and fundamentals
- Level 2 - depends on the individual, but generally 10 hours plus of classes, having grasped the fundamentals is able to maintain the principles whilst adding in more resistance
- Level 3 - A regular class attendee who is confident doing a larger repertoire of exercises and working with more challenging options.
- Level 4 - Intermediate level. Someone who is fairly advanced in their practice which has developed over a long period of time with regular classes. A greater range of flexibility through the body and upper body strength is required at this level (and a good sense of humour!)
- Level 5 - Intermediate, working towards advanced (we are all working towards this!)

Recommendations for EnergyFlowFitness Classes
Hi Sarah - meant to give you some feedback on the back pain class last week - in case it's useful. Well, I was apprehensive starting with a new teacher after so many years, but it was really great. Firstly, being in a group where everyone briefly described their particular back problems felt really supportive - we're all in this together type of thing! So you felt there was a lot of understanding in the room, about life with pain, pain management, and also about sometimes feeling afraid to do things in pilates classes! Secondly, the clarity and thoroughness of the explanations about what we were doing and why was really helpful, in helping to visualise your muscles working and also helping you to put in that extra bit of effort. Lastly, the slow pace with lots of repetitions was really relaxing and felt very safe. I have no intention of stopping coming to your classes - but will enjoy the difference, and hopefully the back pain class will strengthen my back, enabling me to feel more confident in the classes generally. And you never know, maybe one day I'll move up a level and stop being one of your longest-serving beginners.
