March MATness? Don’t you mean March MADness?
You read that right! In the Pilates community the big buzz this month has been “March MATness.” It is a movement started by Benjamin Degenhardt, a classically trained Pilates instructor, celebrating the original 34 mat exercises created by Joseph Pilates. For several years now, instructors from all over the world have participated via social media, posting pictures of themselves or clients demonstrating the exercises. What a great use of Facebook and Instagram to motivate us to practice Joe’s mat work! Check out the picture collage above of some my Instagram postings from 2017. 🙂
This year I asked myself, how can I can celebrate March MATness with in my own community? The answer? Offering a Classical Pilates Mat Pop Up Class, of course!
If you are free and able, join me March 31st from 10:15am to 11:30am at Camarillo Pilates. This will be a Classical Pilates Mat working many of the 34 original Pilates mat exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. The level of the course will be intermediate and the pace rhythmic and challenging.* Be ready to sweat and practice exercises such as teaser, boomerang and swan dive! Details below…
Where: Camarillo Pilates
When: Sunday, March 31st 10:15am to 11:30am

*Given the nature of the Classical Pilates mat work, this class is not recommended for those with osteoporosis, those in their second or third trimester of pregnancy, or those rehabbing a recent injury or surgery.
