PE002 PO - Pilates Method

When Offered: Each semester.
Instructor(s): M. Gamans
Credit: 0.25

This class is designed for students with no previous or very little experience in Pilates. Pilates is an abdominally based workout that is designed to create postural strength focusing on the abdominal as well as the small intrinsic muscles that support our spinal column. The entire theory of Pilates is developed around the idea of lengthening the muscles as they contract. The innovative method of exercise demands intense focus on certain muscle groups while all the time engaging the abdominals. This type of activity increases strength and flexibility around the spinal column as well as other major muscle groups. The practice of Pilates is designed to stimulate the proper neurological innervation to create a deeper sense of symmetry. P/NC only. May be repeated for credit.
