Pilates Classes Introduction

Some people may find their introduction to Pilates classes slightly intimidating. This is largely because they do not know what to expect. The sight of some of the Pilates equipment can be a a bit off-putting to some as they cannot visualise how they might interact with the machines. There is absolutely no need for any concern or trepidation. Pilates is a very warm, welcoming and client-focused practice. The vast majority of Pilates instructors are well trained, friendly and are in tune with the needs of the class members.

Pilates - What is Involved?

Pilates classes involve either special Pilates or mat work on the floor.

Pilates Mat Work

Most people get their introduction to Pilates on the mat. All of the basic concepts and movements of Pilates are integral parts of the mat work. The beauty of the mat exercises is that they are almost totally adaptable to any level of physical fitness. It is key Pilates principle that you become totally conscious and aware of your own body. This is fare easier with mat work than if you had to immediately come to terms with strange equipment. With the help of your instructor mat work will quickly help you to build confidence and ability in the Pilates method

Pilates Work with Equipment

Once you have built you confidence and strength through your mat work you will be equipped and ready to take on, and have fun with the Pilates machines. Pilates equipment is designed to be very user-friendly. This is so despite the unusual sounding names such as Reformer, Wunda Chair and Cadilac. The reformer allows finely tuned exercises to develop good alignment, flexibility and core strength. The Wunda Chair (also called the Pilates Chair or Low Chair) is a resistance tool that aids many exercises to build core strength. Despite its' somewhat primitive appearance the Pilates Cadilac, sometimes referred to (somewhat dauntingly) as 'The Rack' is one of the most effective and versatile pieces of exercise equipment ever to be engineered. In excess of 80 distinct exercises can be performed on the Cadilac.

What do you need for Pilates Classes

Pilates studios usually provide all the equipment that you will use during your Pilates classes. Some people attending mat work classes like to bring their own mat. If you choose to purchase your own mat please discuss this with your Pilates instructor. Pilates mats may be bought online or in good health and fitness stores. They are usually slightly thicker than the average yoga mat.

Pilates classes will not have you gasping for water however it is recommended that you bring along a bottle of water to ensure that you remain properly hydrated throughout your mat work.

Pilates Classes - What to Wear?

A little bit of consideration of what to wear to your Pilates class is necessary. Your clothes should be loose enough to allow full movement of your body and limbs however they must not be too baggy.

Your instructor will need to assess the alignment of your bones and how your muscles are being engaged so your clothes must not be too loose. A note of caution is necessary here - some Pilates exercises can be a bit revealing if the clothes that you wear to the class are too loose.

Pilates classes are usually done with bare feet so there is no need for specific footwear. Long hair should be tied back and any loose jewellery such as necklaces, bracelets, bangles etc should not be worn during your class.

Also in deference to your classmates you should avoid wearing strongly scented perfumes or deodorants.
