Mat Pilates class uses the student’s own body as resistance and it is a great option for the beginner or advanced student. Pilates strengthens the core abdominal and back muscles to prevent or treat back pain and improve coordination, posture, balance and alignment thereby producing a lasting sense of well being in the process. Classically trained Pilates teachers will create a successful mat class that will achieve the same benefits as an equipment class: improved strength, posture, flexibility and long, toned muscles.
