Pilates Active Ageing - These classes have been designed with the over 50's in mind.  We hurt a little more and we like to take things a little slower.  We have you moving and completing a whole of body workout at a pace more suitable for those of us that like the idea of exercising slowly.

MOBILITY

STICK MOBILITY

Stick Mobility is intended to help users increase their fitness, strength, mobility, muscle activation, movement and range of motion.  It can also lead to faster rehabilitation from injury. The stick is used in conjunction with exercises or movements that utilise the flexibility and strength of the stick to propel your body into peak fitness.

Some exercises and stretches test contralateral and ipsilateral patterns which require the use of more than one stick.  Multi-directional stretching is a facet of Stick Mobility.  Some moves involve rotating the trunk in the transverse plane and pushing the arms in opposite directions to allow for optimal range of motion. 

 

Stretches and movements may also involve hanging, twisting, pushing, and pulling in opposing directions to reach maximal ranges. 

 

Expect to get your heart pumping, your hips and feet moving and your back and arms stretched in a way that makes you feel elongated and flexible again. 

Join the fun and move freely!

Stick Mobility is suitable for all levels, especially suited to golfers.
