Kathryn Ross Nash explains in detail how to use an original Pilates mat for an Intermediate level workout. (You can find a mat like the one used here at Gratz Pilates). She goes slowly through each exercise giving hands-on help to her student Ernesto as she explains the foundational movements that make up the basics of each exercise and how to begin incorporating them together as the body you're working with begins to advance. For teachers and enthusiasts looking to discover the inner workings of the mat work, there's much more here than simply learning the goals of the exercises as Kathi shares her wealth of knowledge for different types of bodies and how to use the apparatus for the fullest benefit. After you've absorbed all you can in this class, try putting it to work in the Flowing Intermediate Mat that follows this one--you'll complete everything you do in this session in a quick 27 minutes!
