Pilates is an ideal exercise session to have at work.
You’ll move all your joints and have a good stretch out – a nice antidote to sitting for the rest of the day or part of the day.
There is a focus on posture and on breathing -elements of the session which you can take back to the office and carry on doing for the rest of the day and the week.
Many people find it very relaxing to do Pilates, even whilst working their muscles. The aim is to start from a relaxed place and lengthen and open the body whilst working and to move mindfully, with the awareness on the body and how it is moving, not on the shenanigans of the work day.
How many of us take a break from work and end up sending a few emails or scrolling through a social media feed? The mind needs a break from all of that data, images, information. Pilates is down time for the work brain, the processing brain,the eyes.
Pilates has fairly broad appeal and can accommodate people with varying degrees of stamina, strength and fitness.
Pilates, for the most part, won’t make you hot and sweaty so there is no need to have a shower afterwards. It won’t mess up hair and makeup either.
Please do get in touch if you’d like us to deliver sessions in your workplace. Depending upon our availability we can do early mornings, dinner times and late afternoon sessions.
