Fitness Pilates, Yoga & Mindfulness Workshop
A workshop of movement - Fitness Pilates, Yoga and Mindfulness at St Nicholas' Park, Warwick with Jon Earls and Hazel Oliver
Fitness Pilates is a sequence of flowing movements with a functional element about it as it differs from the more traditional mat-based pilates, with its global approach to how the body moves and functions, incorporating twisting, bending, reaching, being it in standing, side lying, all fours, supine, prone positions. All these work on conditioning the deep core muscles of our med-section in a 3-dimensional way, as we all live, work and move in this world and space, it makes sense to train and move our body’s in these ways too.
Looking to improving strength, mobility, concentration, posture, flexibility, function, focus, breathing, balance and stability and correction exercise. Using tools like mini balls, bands allowing the body to move in different directions, at different levels and at different speeds, so the core and other muscles are challenged and strengthened and stabilise in all directions.
The movements are designed to work on suppleness, flow, to move with grace, bring a skill and awareness that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, the way you play and the way you work. Being a more "functional" form of exercise, working in all 3 planes of movement, Sagittal (forward & backwards) Frontal (sideways) and Transverse (rotation) looking to decreasing risk of injury and increasing wellness and overall health, improved sleep, movement, flexibility to name a few, as well as improving sports performance.
I feel it’s important to balance the hard-core exercise with the calm more restorative style of class, like pilates, yoga and mindfulness to help bring the body into a state of homeostasis.

Coupled with the benefits of Mindful Movement and Yoga you will gain an understanding about life through movement practice. When trying to balance in a yoga posture, notice how your body isn't stiff or still, but continuously moving and correcting to maintain your balance. Sometimes you lose your balance and have to start again. In the same way, living a life of balance requires continous correction, and sometimes you get it wrong. You just need to start again.
