We Took It to the Mat: A Pilates Mat Workshop Recap

On April 14, 2018, Castle Hill Fitness Pilates teacher, Jae Hoon, led a Classical Pilates Mat Workshop open to Pilates enthusiasts of all levels, with demonstrations provided by Pilates instructor, Celeste Knickerbocker. In this two-hour event, participants learned beginner and intermediate Mat exercises, an equipment-free method of Pilates that works your entire body. While guiding participants through the exercises, Jae Hoon explained how to apply the six Pilates principles: Centering, Control, Concentration, Flow, Breath, and Precision.

In this challenging but fun workshop, students gained a deeper understanding of the Pilates philosophy and objectives, and learned exercises that they can practice at home, or even while traveling. One of the many perks of Mat Pilates – it’s a completely portable exercise!

In the Castle Hill Fitness Pilates Studio, you will find seasoned professionals and a variety of programs and classes. We provide private and small group lessons, weekly equipment classes, and special one-day and multi-week series to deepen your understanding and experience.
