Pilates Over 50's
The class starts with 10 minutes of gentle Qichong breathing and tai chi warm up (see adjacent video), followed by Pilates including occasional use of a Pilates ball and exercise bands to help stabilise and focus on the exercises. It is a gentle and relaxing class.
Thirty minutes of low impact dance/fitness moves to get the heart rate up and burn fat using music with a steady medium pace suitable for beginners to exercise and/or over 50's. Great routines with great music that will get you in the mood to move. Follow this with 30 minutes of Pilates exercises to help your balance, flexibility, strength and core for a great all round workout.
These classes are taught by Lisa & Martine.

"I attend the over 50's fitness group because it makes me believe I can change my life and get fitter in a safe and unthreatening environment. I can't think of anything worse that exercising in the company of youngsters half my age and half my size!"
