Fine Tuned Pilates Mat Class

With a Physical Therapist perspective and 25 years of Pilates experience Gail Kotel, MPT teaches a one hour mat class which allows for multiple levels and body types. Gail, trained in the traditional Joseph Pilates techniques has been doing pilates for 28 years and teaching for the last 13.

Her classes are challenging yet provide individual modifications for pain free precision of movement to achieve inner core stability and strength, thereby each person can have a fulfilling and successful experience. Pilates stresses strengthening in a lengthened position with constant attention to the core muscles surrounding the spine. Effective, safe and fun! Special attention is offered to people with chronic pain and/or history of orthopedic injury/back or joint pain. This class is perfect for anyone but is safe for the post rehab person with emphasis on orthopedic modifications.
