This workshop will combine Oxygen Advantage (breathing method) with Pilates with the aim to challenge your body and calm your mind.
In this workshop you will learn the breathing techniques of Oxygen Advantage and apply them to Pilates Matwork core exercises. By the end of the workshop participants will have a good understanding of Pilates and Oxygen Advantage and how these 2 techniques combined can help with core activation.
Joseph Pilates was very interested in breathing. He is quoted saying:"Breathing is the rst act of life and the last. Our very life depends on it." It was his belief that people didn't breathe properly.
Oxygen Advantage is a breathing system aiming to improve the delivery of oxygen to the cells. Better oxygenation of your cells means: sharp focus, ecient metabolism & better sports performance. Based on scientic evidence we know that our ability to utilise oxygen is dependent on our breathing practice. Breathing heavily though contributes to the exact opposite of the desired eect.
