Using the Magic Circle, participants will learn exercises of the Classical Pilates mat series and be able to do them on their own using proper technique. You will increase your overall fitness by strengthening your Powerhouse muscles, learn to initiate everyday movements (like sitting) from a strong Powerhouse, discover, explore and develop insight through group discussion to connect personal power with your physical Powerhouse. Prerequisite: Participants should be able to get up and down on the floor on their own. Required Equipment: Pilates Magic Circle.
