Description

Pilates in its purest form just needs a mat and nothing else so can be practised from anywhere by nearly anyone, however various pieces of equipment like swiss balls, mini balls, resistance bands, foam rollers and Pilates studio equipment, like Reformers, can be used.

We rarely give our core enough recognition, but the group of muscles that make up your core (Transversus abdominis, Internal/ External obliques and Rectus abdominis) are constantly working to stabilise your spine, giving you the ability to move around with ease.

Nearly all movements originate from the core muscles, from sitting up straight, to bending over, to—you guessed it—even running!

Why runners should try Pilates:

  • Increased core strength
  • Corrects postural imbalances, which helps reduce the risk of injury
  • Breathing techniques
  • Improved endurance
  • Quicker and more comprehensive recovery.
  • Better Balance

Cost: £7

Date: 8th May 10:00 – 11:00

Pilates targets the core muscles that help stabilise you when you run, keeping the spine in a stable position whilst the limbs move. So, by improving your core strength, you can increase your power output. If you are looking to develop a deeper understanding of the way your body works and improve your technique and posture, Pilates can help you become a strong more able cyclist.
