We will study the foundation of the Pilates method for those who are new to Pilates or wish to focus on core principles. Core strength, alignment, stretching, breathing and control are taught using mat exercises. No prior experience is required. Participants must be comfortable working on the floor and able to get up and down without assistance. Bring your own exercise mat (OLLI has extras). Comfortable clothing is suggested.
