Add on Mat™

70 min - Class


Add on Mat™ is a Level 3 class for teachers and really strong clients who wish to challenge themselves in a somewhat "grueling" fashion. Do the hundred rest, then, the Hundred, the Roll Up, rest, the Hundred, Roll up, Roll Over, rest, and so on. As the class progresses, Kara will taper the number of repetitions, but this class is not for the faint of heart or for people who practice Pilates casually. Make each repetition better than the one before and never forget the importance of the transitions. Kara teaches with determination, and precision and never forgets to have a little fun. Good luck!

When we originally posted this class we were unaware that Add on Mat™ was the intellectual property of Distinguished instructor Kathryn Ross-Nash. Kathryn was kind enough to let us continue using it but thought we'd like to know the story behind it beyond what we learn here from Kara. You can read how Kathryn originally put this class together below, and what's even better, is we are working on dates for Kathryn to come to teach the class herself along with a workshop! All Good!

The creation of the Add on Mat™ Class in Kathryn Ross- Nash's own words:

"Several years ago my oldest child was studying for the PSATs. I glanced at his vocabulary workbook and thought," now this is interesting". There was a method of learning and memorizing that I could employ in the teaching of Pilates. My son had the Stamford Vocabulary Builder book. The way the lesson was constructed helped to reinforce and build at the same time. The lesson began with one word and then used it in a paragraph, then the next word was introduced and BOTH words were used in the next paragraph. This went on for 100 words. I then thought back to the days when Romana would have us do one repetition of each exercise to strengthen our knowledge of or and flow. With the marriage of these two learning tools, the Add on Mat™ was born. It helps to create flow, improves concentration, helps the transitions to become part of the workout, and solidifies the order of the workout. It definitely gets your blood moving!"

Thank you guys so much for coming. This is really so nice to have so many people in class especially, um, cause it is a bugger. Okay. So the add on mat is something that you can do for yourselves and for really strong clients. If, if kind of you guys are sick of just like getting on the reformer and doing the same old thing or you know, just a regular mat work. Also, it's, it's um, a bit more grueling because this is how we do it. We do the hundred rest, we do the a hundred, the roll-up rest, we do the a hundred, the roll up, the rollover rest. We do the a hundred. The roll-up, the rollover, the one like circle rest. We do the a hundred, the roll up the road when the, so on and so forth through the entire mat.

Okay. As we go, I will taper down the number of repetitions we do, but we still do all the exercises. So, um, one thing that Romana taught us was that the most challenging PyLadies workout you could do was one of every single exercise. And the idea being that the only reason you even repeat employees is to do it better. So it's only when you get your perfect one do you, do you stop? So, so that's what we're trying to do and also the transitions because it is also the transitions in life. People getting up out of bed, people getting out of their car, putting their kids in the car that people end up getting injured so that we study the transitions and repeat the transitions again and again so they become seamless and fluent. Okay. So with that, let's begin. Um, oh one last thing. Uh, Matt work is a lot of forward fluxion if you end up feeling like, ah, my back, my neck need to stretch the other way. Take your time. If you have an injury and you want to just do again, one repetition really well of what we're doing.

And then as we warm up and we go through motions that your body's then prepared to stay on pace with us as we just do one and continue moving, that would be a better way to work. Okay. For everyone else. We're just going to go for it guys. Uh, if I see anything, you know that I really have to jump up and cracked up, cracked. Otherwise we're gonna just keep moving. Okay, so everyone's step at the edge of the mat. Let's go and cross one foot over the other. Let's hold one arm over the other. I'm going to be trying to stay moving with you guys so that we can continue to stay on tempo. If again, I might jump up every so often and correct, but, but let's keep moving. Okay.

Thank you for this session...loved the beginning note...I paraphrase, "You repeat in Pilates to do it BETTER." Also...thigh stretch was amazing as a group. Thanks again!

I finished it this time. Very nice pace and wonderful challenge. Thanks. Yes, the sound fades out every once in awhile but once you get the sequence it doesn't matter too much. More like this. It is nice to have more options on level 3.
that was a hard class

Awesome! this actually got my heart rate up. She wastes no time at all. More from her. How bout reformer and small props? The volume/sound system however was very lousy. But the class was still fun.
Pls. fix it.
Because of the energy of the class and the nature of the movements in relation to the microphone that Kara is wearing, there were many high peaks of microphone noise and reverberation that we opted to diminish or remove to better your workout experience. Unfortunately, that meant some of the words were also cut in the process. We'll look to do it differently next time if possible. Thank you for the feedback.
