Challenge your body: Advanced Level Pilates Workouts

A comprehensive workout

Advanced Pilates exercises are designed to be part of a comprehensive workout that includes various exercises at different levels, creating a balanced and dynamic routine. Before incorporating advanced work, it’s essential to have a firm grasp of beginner and intermediate exercises.

As you progress from novice to intermediate levels under the guidance of the instructors at Trainor Movement Co., you will become acquainted with modifications, ensuring rhythmic and controlled movements. The advanced variations build upon your existing knowledge, adding depth to your practice.

Progression through practice

Under your teacher’s direction, you’ll progress from basic exercises to more intricate, integrated movements. Your exercise goals are tailored to you, starting with mastering mat or reformer exercises in the early stages. Patience is essential as you work on control.

Some advanced exercises and equipment may be unfamiliar, so it’s crucial to discover what feels best for your body while aiming for mastery. While many Pilates exercises are suitable for all levels, trying advanced exercises is safest with trained supervision.

The focus remains on connecting with your body, prioritizing control, and exploring ways to enhance your Pilates practice.
