Classic Pilates classes stay true to the origins of Pilates without deviating from Joseph Pilates’s vision. Focus is kept on slow calculated movements and breathing patterns. One of Joseph Pilates main precepts besides gaining core strength, improving balance and becoming more fit, is to become more in tune with one’s own body. This is achieved by the practitioners requiring intense focus to properly perform the exercises. All movements must be precisely controlled as the idea is to feel the actions happening from the center of the body outward while at the same time being mindful of one’s breath throughout the process.
This intense focus is incorporated into all 1 on 1 Pilates courses but people just entering the discipline often find classic Pilates to be the most efficient way to ensure a well rounded understanding of the exercises, as well as establish a stable breath pattern to facilitate proper execution of the exercises.
