What is THE BREATHING PILATES?
This is a mindful breathing, core strengthening, posture awareness class that follows the principles and exercises of Stott Pilates. Many beginner students or students with weak core strengths are not benefitting from the normal group pilates class because there is a lack of attention on how to breathe deeply into the lower back or sitting taller without tensing your hips and shoulders. In this workshop, we get to the root of the problem to practise pilates mindfully and effectively.
I have been teaching pilates for more than 16 years and had noticed that many students needed more detailed help than just instructing them to use their core strength.
There are generally 2 main group of able bodied students:
1) Not enough awareness of one's breath and have difficulties regulating one's breath (i.e, taking
long and deep breaths.) Most students are "Chest Breathing" most of the time and the
breaths are shallow which caused tensions physically.
2) Bad posture or lack of attention to one's neutral posture when we step out of the pilates or yoga
class because we do not know how to activate those deep core muscles in a relaxed manner.

Is this course for you?
The health of your spine is crucial in maintaining balance in your energy centers. When you can stand or sit tall, you can breathe much better and deeper which can change your mental and emotional states.
Improving your postures can relieve aches in your body and also give you more balance and confidence. Be responsible for your own emotional, physical and mental health.

This will also be a great workshop for yoga students who are pretty flexible and lack core strength. You may be able to do intermediate yoga poses with deep back bends but you experience back aches or joint pains. I had met too many yoga and dance students with this problem. Please share this with your friend.

This workshop starts you with a relaxation and breathing guide first and then follows with
- awareness of the basic principles of pilates
- Learning how to engage the deep core muscles
- Spinal Articulation exercises
- Relaxation

All students are required to attend the fundamental workshop on 12th Jan 2019 if you are an absolute beginner to Pilates Matwork, before joining the course.
It will be held from 11am - 1pm at the same venue.
