34 Mat Exercises

2 hr 30 min - Workshop


The Mat work is the gateway into Pilates for many people, but it is also the hardest part of the method to truly master. In this workshop, Benjamin Degenhardt breaks down all 34 exercises from the original sequence that was outlined in Return to Life. Because there are so many variations of these exercises, this is a great opportunity to understand the work deeper in your body so you will know how to make adjustments for yourself. In addition, he shows how each exercise is connected, and he offers placeholders that you can use if you come to a movement that is not right for your body.
