A Method Focus - Matwork!

Updated: Mar 26


Matwork...the most versatile workout in the Pilates Method. All you need is a floor and a mat. This workout can be done anywhere and everywhere. This is the order I teach which is considered the Classical format, just as Joe taught it!

Each week I post an exercise of the week. I am currently working my way through the Classical Mat work. As we work through the Mat repertoire, I will update this list with links to the selected exercises. I recommend to my clients to incorporate at least two Pilates workouts each week.
