The course is Pilates based but does contain some general strengthening and mobilising. This advanced class has about 10–15 minutes devoted to cardio-thoracic fitness.
In her classes, Lorna works with participants to increase their core strength and flexibility at their own pace, and to improve posture and balance as well as a sense of physical and mental well-being. The strength, flexibility and exercise tolerance of the group is built up over time. Everyone who attends makes improvements in their physical capability.
NOTE: Participants are required to bring a mat and a towel.
The classes require that participants can get up from and get down to the floor unassisted.
Experience of a semester with the beginners class is required before joining the advanced class.
