Of all the pieces of Pilates equipment, the chair offers the most athletic challenges. There are numerous intermediate to very advanced exercises, in addition to essential exercises for beginners. Unlike moves on the reformer or the mat, most chair exercises are performed while sitting or standing, which provides an excellent environment for functional and athletic training at any level of ability. This makes the chair a choice Pilates tool to “feel the burn,” and to develop strength, coordination and balance. The chair also is very effective for creating sport-specific programs, as it develops explosive leg power integrated with core strength and good biomechanics.
The Pilates Chair class is designed to compliment BareBarre and Vines classes. For a total body workout, cross-train using a variety of techniques and props.
