RHYTHM PILATES is an exciting fusion of study and disciplines, incorporating Pilates, Yoga & Dance. Pilates is the technique, Yoga is designed to free the spirit and Dance infuses beauty into the movements. An exciting new form of mat Pilates that expands on the traditional method by incorporating fluid transitions into whole body integrated movement art workout sequences that are choreographed to music. Lisa's goal was to increase the enjoyment of Pilates without diluting the true form of the method or sacrificing the intensity and focus of the work.
Rhythm Pilates is an evolutionary approach whereas taking static movements and transforming them into a series of 30-minute invigorating Pilates based workouts. Varying in levels and complexity, from the beginning level, to the intermediate and developing to the advanced level work. The sequencing is thoughtfully created to target the whole body, intelligently working to biomechanically prepare the mind, muscles, joints, tissues and the spirit.
Coordinating the original six principles of the Pilates method and highlighting the elements of rhythm and flow, Rhythm Pilates offers a heightened and challenging experience for even the most seasoned instructor. It is scientifically proven that one increases their metabolic rate by incorporating motivating and uplifting music while working out. The music selected enhances the work and encourages a more stimulating physical and mental experience.
Rhythm Pilates is a thoughtful way at how you go from beginning to end. It is not simply exercise after exercise, but rather a choreographed pathway that takes your body through one experience to the next in logical and artistic avenues of movement and energy.
