Our High Intensity Pilates at HIP Studio is a Pilates reformer class spiced with an athletic approach. But some days your body wants to get back to basics. Or maybe you’re just starting out and the reformer harbors an intimidation factor you didn’t anticipate. We’ve added a HIP Back To Basics class on Saturdays to for you to reconnect or get aquatinted with your HIP Pilates practice.
No matter your level of fitness, practicing Pilates increases body awareness, flexibility, while creating lean muscles in conjunction with improving posture and core strength. This may relieve joint pain and stress in the neck and back. Strengthening the deep postural muscles can also help prevent injury as well as bouncing back from one.
The basis of Pilates focuses on stabilizing the muscles supporting the spine and pelvis for optimal alignment and better quality of movement. Creating a mind/body connection to core stabilizing muscles transcends to other activities outside of the practice for prime execution. It doesn’t matter if your target activity is balancing a baby on your hip or training for a marathon, Pilates takes it to a whole new level!
