  • beginning mat level 1

    Welcome to Basic Mat! - Level 1

    In this program we will take the concepts we learned in the Foundations of Pilates DVD and expand them to Beginning Mat Pilates exercises. 

    Each exercise is presented with a variety of options to meet your personal challenge level. Using this system, this program can be appropriate for a beginning level student and still useful for students as they progress in strength and endurance.

    So when you see or try a couple of these variations, REMEMBER to “Be like Goldilocks and choose the one that is ‘just right’ for YOU!

    I hope you will join me on the Mat!
