Mat Pilates


Adult / Fitness/Aquatics -
Adult Summer 2024

An all-level Mat Pilates class that is a full-body, low-impact workout that will make your muscles long and lean. Designed to help you live your best life, this class focuses on injury prevention, pain reduction, and working smart. In true Pilates style, it helps students create balance between smaller, underused muscles and the bigger muscles by learning to relax the overused, larger muscles and engage the smaller muscles. It also teaches the how and why of the exercises, body awareness, body mechanics, and efficiency in motion. This is mainly a strength-building class with some stretching. Attend in person, or join online via Zoom.

Late Registration: If you miss the deadline but are still interested, you can contact the Community Ed office. Space may be limited, but we'll try our best to accommodate late registrations.

Drop-In Option: Some classes offer a drop-in option, which allows you to register and participate on the day of the class.

Instructor

Kaethe Birkner


Kaethe is a professional ballet dancer and is certified in Pilates through Balanced Body. She has been teaching ballet, Pilates and stretching group classes for ten years has been doing personal training for eight years. Kaethe’s love of ballet came first, when she was only two years old, and her love of Pilates followed when she was still a ballet student. Now, she uses both her ballet and Pilates knowledge in all her teaching. Having personally suffered a number of injuries and spent many hours in physical therapy over the years, Kaethe also incorporates her knowledge of physical therapy into her teaching style. Her specialties included a focus on proper technique, injury prevention, and alignment. Every class is built around the people in her class that day and their individual and group needs. She believes that individual corrections are key to making sure each student gets the most out of every workout and every exercise. In addition, when ok with the student, she uses hands-on corrections to help them learn how to engage not only the big muscles of their bodies but also the little, harder to activate muscles. Kaethe’s teaching goals are to provide her students with a fun class and full-body workouts that focus on proper technique, alignment, and injury prevention.
