Course outline

In this 6-week live online Pilates course for beginners, you'll learn the essential principles of mat Pilates in a small, friendly and interactive online teaching environment.

Week 1: Breathing

Breathing is central to all Pilates exercises and every exercise follows a specific breathing pattern. In this first week, we'll cover how to breathe laterally which is the key method used in Pilates.

Week 2: Core-centring

All Pilates movements originate from the core. This week we'll learn how to control our core muscles including engaging our pelvic floor to enable movement to flow from the centre of the body outwards.

Week 3: Concentration

Concentration is about using sensory feedback to know where our body is positioned in space and where and how it needs to move. This week we'll develop our ability to feel the exercises, not just perform them.

Week 4: Control

Control means making sure you're using the right muscles at the right time. This week we'll focus on mastering the correct technique — essential before progressing to more advanced exercises.

Week 5: Flow

Flow describes the use of smooth, fluid movement in Pilates. This week we'll focus on making our movements slow and controlled, rather than stiff and jerky.

Week 6: Precision

Pilates is all about paying attention to detail. This week we'll learn about the importance of joint and limb alignment to ensure the right muscles are being used.

FAQs

As a complete newbie, I enrolled on Kat's Pilates for Beginners Course via Zoom. I was a little dubious as to how I would cope with the classes online but Kat's excellent quality of instruction and explanation made it work very well for me. I was so pleased with the progress I made. I am now hooked.
