Kurs with Yuko Matsuyama

Conditioning & Strength
This class is Pilates based conditioning & strength class, including intermediate exercises. The essential Pilates principles are Breath, Centering, Concentration, Control, Flow, and Precision. Joseph H. Pilates originally called his work "Contrology". it designed to harmonize the Body-Mind-Spirit interactions. The class begins with warm-up exercises to release and align the body. Deep breathing increases oxygen supply to your body, and the use of the full breathing pattern opens the way for easy access to your powerhouse: pelvic floor muscles, abdominal muscles, and muscles around low back and hips. The wide variety of the exercises help to improve body awareness, core strength, balance, control, and flexibility.
