Pilates Mat Fundamentals in Italian / When learning Pilates, how well you understand the basic exercises will set up how far you progress in the method. Join Simona for a session that covers the goals of the exercises, how to properly align your body and how to engage your Powerhouse throughout the movement. This is a session you can return to whenever you need a reminder of where the work begins. Filmed at Uptown Pilates East on Mahattan’s Upper East Side. Visit Simona at her studio: The Art of Control.
