ONLINE: A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.
Joseph Pilates (1883-1967) developed an integrated system of physical exercise which he called Contrology and successfully applied to rehabilitating soldiers injured in World War I. Contrology emphasized mind-body connections with a focus on core postural muscles. Today, we know this system as Pilates. Gwyn Jones employs a modern approach to the original Pilates method. In this class she will demonstrate the priorities of alignment and posture, blending natural and structured movements to enhance mobility and increase strength, and guiding us to a better understanding of our mind-body connections. She will provide different levels of modification while building the fundamentals of natural movement patterns. Participants in this online presentation can be seated or standing with a chair for support. Gwyn Jones has offered personal training sessions, workshops, and classes on Pilates for more than ten years. She is certified in STOTT Pilates and TRX suspension, and annually enrolls in continuing Pilates education.
