Nearly 100 years ago, Joseph H. Pilates developed a unique and revolutionary approach to physical fitness. Used as a method for rehabilitating injured soldiers during World War I, this new form of exercise developed a strong and faithful following among the New York City dance community during the 1920s. Today, the Pilates method is widely accepted as an excellent core conditioning system, with a mind-body connection. Barre is a hot trend right now, with exercises focused on creating strong, lean muscles like those of classical ballet dancers.
This training is ideal for yoga and group exercise instructors looking for new ways to add core conditioning to their classes, students wanting to delve more deeply into the benefits and proper alignment of mat Pilates exercises, and teachers wishing to teach a Mat Pilates or Barre Yoga class format.
