Pilates stretch & breathe

Friday, June 1, 0600-0630
Saturday, June 2, 0600-0630
Room 501 (5th floor), Metro Toronto Convention Centre

Pilates is a conditioning routine that can help improve circulation, flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance. This sequence can help improve and maintain posture and balance, and can aid in the relief of tension and stress. During the 30-minute session the focus will be on creating stability and improving flexibility through slow, controlled movements. The session uses Pilates breathing to help with engaging those deep abdominal muscles that stabilize the body, improve spine mobility and provide an awesome stretch for your entire body. The class is suitable for beginners and also suitable if you have been practising yoga (or another discipline) and want to learn something new!

Yoga or comfortable workout clothing recommended. Mats will be provided.
