Intro to Pilates 3


with Barbara E. McGranahan

Calendar Jan 4, 2024 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

The nearly century-old practice is both therapeutic and preventative. Pilates provides a low-impact, full-body workout and being aware of and controlling your breath can also reduce stress. Pilates specifically focuses on building care strength and can improve lower back pain. By strengthening the body’s core, it becomes easier to find balance and have good posture, improve coordination, and reduce the risks of falls or other accidents. If you are looking for a new workout routine that can give you a good balance of flexibility, strength, muscle tone and help for a few aches and pains, start with building a strong core in this Pilates basics class.
