Over time and as your body recovers and you have less of a need for the stability provided by the Pilates equipment, you may want to consider moving into rehabilitative mat classes. Mat work will require you to stabilize your own body in many exercises, without the assistance the equipment provides. The mat rehab repertoire is built on low or zero impact exercises, core strengthening, posture enhancement and slow and thoughtful movement. These classes are also great for anyone who may be suffering from occasional back or neck tension, or recent minor injury, such as a twisted ankle or broken toe. That way you can keep coming to Pilates while you work your way back to your previous performance level slowly and safely. These classes are limited to 8 clients to ensure that the instructor can offer appropriate modifications to everyone and make any hands on adjustments.
