ABOUT MATWORK AT PFI
Matwork Pilates uses body weight, props and gravity for resistance, is flowing and continuous, is creative, fun and feels amazing and allows you to move in all directions.
We have a style to suit every. body.
The heart of the Pilates method: matwork uses body weight and small props to create challenge that is scalable for every body. A dynamic, full body workout, matwork invites creativity and affords freedom in movement and flow.
Matwork can be a valuable addition to an existing fitness regimen, or a transformative, stand-alone exercise; creating lean muscle tone, improving mobility and flexibility, and strengthening the whole body from the inside out. It is also beneficial for improving pelvic floor functionality, reducing stress and enhances general wellbeing.
Private and Semi-Private Studio Pilates appointments are useful if you are looking to hone your matwork technique, rehabilitate/prevent injury or meet specific performance goals. Learn more about Studio Pilates.
