From the beginning of September Pilates instructor Julie will be introducing a Junior Pilates class to Club CHF for 11 – 16 year olds. Pilates classes for teens are becoming increasingly popular as teens are more aware than ever before about keeping fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Pilates can help increase strength and flexibility in core muscles and teach young people how the body works and feels, helping to build confidence and body awareness.
Junior Pilates is a great way to maintain over all fitness into adulthood by helping to improve:
Pilates helps to improve posture and strengthen surrounding muscles. Correct posture will reduce the likelihood of suffering in later life from problems in the back, knees, and neck and shoulders.
Co ordination & Breathing
Pilates focuses on the breathing, helping to keep the core muscles pulled in when performing the exercises. Focused breathing will make you more bodily aware so the movements are fluid and controlled and whilst some movements can be difficult a strong centre helps to perform the exercises correctly.
With practice this internal focus becomes second nature and can be applied in every day life not just in the class situation. The class can help to relax participants giving way to the overall sense of well-being regular sessions bring about.
The internal effort used to engage the core muscles of the pelvis, abdominal and back is used to create the flat stomach, defined waist and to aid correct posture.
Junior Pilates starts from 6th September for 11-16 year olds.
Tuesday evenings 5pm to 6pm – £7.50 per person
