Mat Pilates and Core Building Session
In these group sessions by Neha SB, the goal is to strengthen the body’s “powerhouse,” a Pilates term that refers to your abdominals, lower back muscles, pelvic floor, hips and glutes. Through a series of floor exercises using resistance bands and rings, the workout helps build, sculpt and tone these muscles, giving your body a long, lean look.
Pilates connects your breath to the exercise, allowing that influx of oxygen to better complete each movement. Since you are concentrating so strongly on breathing deeply, the mind can benefit from mindfulness, relaxation and stress reduction during and after class. Over time, your mind becomes trained to stay more focused not only while working out, but also in your everyday life. Those who practice Pilates often reap the benefits of these deep breathing exercises, suffering less from anxiety, anger and even depression.
