If you have clients who can’t get down on the floor, you can teach Pilates in a chair. Join Simona as she demonstrates the workout she taught a group of deconditioned seniors who, 10 years later, are now able to get down on the mat and do a complete intermediate workout! You’ll learn how to adapt the classical matwork to stretch the whole body with emphasis on balance, posture and gaining strength. Enjoy! Visit Simona's studio in Stamford, Connecticut at The Art of Control.
