In this session, Simona leads a class of college students with a few months of Pilates experience through a complete mat workout. Her precise cues make a challenging journey all the more interesting for the information she gives about the purpose of the exercises. If you wonder what an exercise is for, you’ll learn a lot from Simona’s descriptions while her fun yet commanding manner pushes you to squeeze a little more out of each move. This session uses a Magic Circle, 2-3 lb arm weights and a Theraband (you can substitute a belt or towel if you don’t have a band). Filmed at The Art of Control™ Simona Cipriani’s studio at the SUNY campus, Purchase New York.
