Recreational Course: Pilates for Beginners

For complete beginners. Learn how to use breathing techniques, set up positions and which muscles to use. Pilates allows the body to redress the balance in muscle tone, lengthening tight muscles and toning lax.

It helps improve posture, balance, strength and spine mobility to enable you to function occupationally and recreationally. You will be taught 15 basic moves, how to breathe effectively and to perform exercises safely. You should achieve tighter muscle tone, more flexibility and the ability to hold a better posture.

When I joined South Devon College I intended to complete two qualifications Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer. I ended up leaving with eight! Including indoor cycling, circuits, chair based exercise and many more. I also won Fitness Instructor of the Year at the annual award ceremony - which was a HUGE achievement for me. I joined to change my life, my career and also came out with an amazing award for my hard work. I went straight into teaching as soon as I qualified with my Level 2, I worked as a fitness instructor teaching indoor cycling first off and this soon escalated into aqua, and many other types of classes, I was covering classes regularly as well as taking my own weekly classes. As soon as I was a qualified personal trainer (PT) I started offering that as well. I am now a well established Instructor and PT with regular classes and clients. I cannot explain how much doing these qualifications has changed my career, changed my world and I absolutely love what I do! I will always be especially grateful to Gary Stephens - Gary was my main tutor and a massive support to me, alongside the fantastic support of Simon Holden, Lynn Stephens and Niall Thompson, I couldn't have done it without any of you!   Karyn Woodhall-Cooper
