These classes use the basic principles and fundamentals of pilates in a standing format to improve balance, stability and confidence when moving.

This provides alternative and different challenges to a matwork class where most of the exercises are performed lying down. This means that these classes can also be done by those with limited mobility or injuries who may find it difficult to get up and down from the floor
The exercises use dynamic or shifting bodyweight exercises to challenge the alignment of the body in an upright position and control movements when changing the centre of stability. As with all classes, basic levels of exercises are used in a slow and controlled manner with layers of difficulty added if you wish.

Functionally based movements mean the body will be weight bearing and this is good for building better bones and for those with conditions such as osteoporosis.

Using the large leg muscles may also assist weight management and different hip muscles will improve mobility for ease of movement.
