What is mat based pilates?

Mat pilates

is pilates that essentially uses groundwork with the mat. It’s a way to strengthen and stretch your body, primarily your core muscles, which span from your shoulders to your hips. Mat pilates was first developed in the 1990s and it takes inspiration from yoga and dance movements. Mat pilates works with a series of exercises that are performed equipment-free, with the moves adapted to work with just a floor mat for support and your body.

What are common pilates mat exercises?

The common pilates floor exercises will vary from instructor to instructor, but you will find they become progressively more complex and difficult as you practise over time. However, most pilates mat workouts are based on the original teachings of the creator of pilates, Joseph Pilates. They tend to begin with a warmup known as the hundred and move on to leg circles, a five-part ab series, and roll-ups.
