We all have our own mobility, but most of us only train their strength and endurance. More flexibility equals more, and more beautiful, shapes centring the pole, and therefore more fun achieving it all!
In our Full Flexy classes you wil be improving your overall flexibility by working on hip openers (for splits) and back bends, next to stretching the large, and deeper, muscle tissue.

Mat Pilates & Floor-Barre®
Mat pilates is a challenging full body workout that focuses on your core muscles, while also toning your arms en legs. Pilates will increase both your strength and flexibility. It will improve your posture and help relieve lower back pain.
Zena Rommett Floor-Barre® is an American ballet-based technique that focuses on sculpting the body and creating long beautiful lines. The technique helps improving posture, preventing injuries, strengthening the body, and improving its flexibility. When practicing Floor-Barre® you will mostly work on the floor from a laying or seated position with ballet position. That way, you can work without gravity and the weight of the body works with the body. Floor-Barre® corrects the placement of the body, strengthens the joints and corrects the muscles by lengthening. Practicing the method leads to long, strong and flexible muscles, and better alignment.
Both classes are suitable for all levels and ages, and also perfect as (back) revalidation training.
