Enhance the Mat is a practical course intended to simplify complex concepts through the use of small props. We will explore use of studio accessories, such foam roller and various balls, to enhance and inform traditional Pilates exercises and biomechanical concepts. Learn how and when to choose various props, and build a repertoire of exercises for in-studio or at-home practice.
