Pilates Basics - All the Hits!

If you haven't been to Pilates Basics yet, this is a good week to give it a try. We will be reviewing, solving problems and trying some new things.
In the past two months we have covered a lot of material, knee folds to Boomerang, and some big concepts, Flow, Control, Breath, etc. The next few weeks we will review and deepen our pilates practice. From "Beginners Mind" to precise execution, anything can happen...

Let's Flow!

You Choose: Disorder or "Attentional Control"

  • The Mark Morris Dance Center

Pilates Basics Mat Class - All Levels

"The mind’s normal condition is disorder, with random thoughts, perceptions and sensations all competing for attention, according to Sabine Kastner, MD, PhD, of Princeton University’s Center for the Study of Brain, Mind and Behavior. Adults usually manage to turn this chaos into reasonable order by exerting “attentional control” (as it’s known scientifically) to filter out some things and focus on others—in other words, by concentrating."
