Mat Pilates borrows from disciplines such as dance, yoga and classic calisthenics. The standard Pilates system of exercise uses many different pieces of equipment, such as the reformer, cadillac and barrel. But, the mat Pilates series of exercise is performed equipment-free, with the moves adapted to work with just your body and a floor mat for cushioning and support.

These mindfulness meditative movements can be done standing or sitting, utilizing the breath as a vehicle for enhancing health. We will explore healing Qigong forms with connection to the Five Elements Energetic Theory. Along with a five movement Tai Chi Easy form we will further evolve into another Yang style form.
