6 Week Pilates Fundamentals Course Online

 
Ideal for absolute beginners or anyone who has been coming to class for a while and finds themselves going into autopilot with the movements.
 
Benefits of Pilates:
  • Improves posture,
  • Improves strength,
  • Eases back pain,
  • Can help with sciatica,
  • Improves flexibility,
  • Helps improve your ability in other activities (all the top athletes included Pilates in their training programmes),
  • Builds stability around the joints,
  • Relaxes the body,
  • Calms the mind,
  • Improves concentration,
  • Improves sleep quality,
 
And when done correctly is safe for almost everyone to do, most exercises can be adapted even for people that can’t lie on the floor. 
 
I sent a survey out to my class to ask what they liked best about the class… The top results:
 
Teacher (that’s me Jen Wilson)
The chat – class should be fun, life outside is serious enough thanks
The other participants – we are a very welcoming family, even online
The variety of exercises – that should be included somewhere!
I also asked them what would they say to encourage someone to come along…

From the Ground Up FEET Online

If you love getting geeky and exploring your body and how it moves, this event is for you!

Nearly all of our movement starts from the feet.

These amazing structures at the ends of our legs are not only fascinating but totally under estimated, under valued and often under cared for.

If you have ever been to one of my classes we ALWAYS start with foot work.

The bottom photo (with my feet on the grass) was taken in 2017, the top photo was taken in 2019. My feet are stronger, have more mobility, are more adaptable…

What has that meant for me?
My niggling knee is no longer niggling
My hip pain has gone
I can comfortably sit in a low squat and it feels like a rest there (see photo in the event)
My balance is better.

Since I started learning about feet, being barefoot, the importance of agile, mobile, strong feet back in 2010 I brought it in to class. I have never stopped going back to books and signing up for courses to learn more (and I haven’t stopped).

In this workshop we will:
understand our feet better
mobilise our feet (and ankles)
work on strengthening the feet
reconnect with the amazing abilities of the feet
get a 2 minute daily routine to moblilise your feet

learn how having more mobile, stronger feet can help us:
move better all over,
get stronger faster (especially if you like to lift weights in the gym), move lighter and easier,
improve general flexibility,
help improve posture

Join me on this online Zoom workshop.
Investment only £22 (inc fees)
