WHY PEOPLE LOVE OUR SHAPE (Pilates) CLASS
SHAPE incorporates Pilates and yoga together for a very shaping result
Pilates exercise is a sequence of about 500 exercises inspired by calisthenics, yoga and ballet and is suitable for everyone, from beginners to advanced practitioners. Pilates stretches all the major muscle groups in our body and it improves flexibility, strength, balance and body awareness.
At Fire Shaper we focus on Mat-based Pilates which are a series of exercises performed on the floor using gravity and your own body weight to provide resistance. This form aims to condition the deeper, supporting muscles of your body to develop better posture, balance and coordination.
A usual Pilates session includes a number of exercises and stretches. Each exercise is performed with attention to proper breathing techniques and abdominal muscle control. To achieve the maximum benefits, you should do Pilates at least two to three times a week. You will notice postural improvements after 10 to 20 sessions.
