The Pilates Mat course consists of two, two-day modules with labs for performing and teaching.

 

Pilates Mat is a variation of the well-known Pilates method, which is characterized by combining elongation exercises with those of strength, through muscle contraction. Mat Pilates movements are performed lying on a mat and starting from the abdominal area, involving raising the rest of the trunk and legs.  Pilates Mat exercises do not require a high number of repetitions. Its goal is to increase abdominal strength and improve flexibility and body control.
