Classical Pilates Mat follows the series of exercises developed by Joseph Pilates that build core strength, improve alignment, create longevity and an enhanced zest for life.  The fundamental principles of breathing, centering, precision and flow develop body awareness, fluidity of movement, and better posture through a supported core.  Symmetry, balanced muscle development, flexibility, and a strong core are natural results from performing the Pilates Method.  Learn these exercises to create a home exercise practice that is easily portable.
Classical Pilates Mat is open to all skill levels.  Pilates is infinitely modifiable, making all exercises accessible to everyone.  There is always a variation to bring more challenge for the advanced level.  Classical Pilates Mat develops deep core strength and helps to align the body.  Exercises are performed lying down or seated on the floor.  The exercises develop flexibility along with strength, leaving the body feeling refreshed and energized.  Concentration is required when performing the exercises creating a strong mental focus.  Learning Pilates fundamentals and the beginner series for a home workout, you will gain core strength and stability in 360 degrees.  Taking your flexibility to the next level is inevitable as all of the exercises have a stretching component.  Every exercise is a full body workout increasing body awareness and well being. Setting the tone for your day, you will leave the studio feeling strong, confident, and refreshed. 

Restorative yoga is a yoga practice in which the yoga practitioner is completely supported in yoga asanas (or poses) with props.  These props include blankets, bolsters, straps, walls, and chairs.  B.K.S. Iyengar is a great yoga master who developed this restorative approach in order to accommodate students who could not perform the traditional yoga asanas due to limited mobility, illness, physical challenges, other limitations, and/or injury.  When the practitioner is fully supported by the props, the body feels safe, relaxed, and at ease allowing the asana to be held for longer periods of time, without any strain.  In this case, the multiple benefits of each asana can be more profound and long lasting.  At this time Gaia Tree Alive Sacred Space is offering Restorative Yoga on a monthly basis and by appointment. We offer small group with a minimum of 5 people or one on one sessions.  We can accommodate groups less than 5 people so please contact the studio for pricing.  Session range from 1-2 hours.  Namaste. 

 Rolfing Structural Integration addresses the clients structure and its' relationship to gravity.  A variety of techniques and range of pressure are utilized to lend more adaptability and support to your life.  Rolfing focuses on the fascia, which is the connective tissues that give tensile support to all of our tissues, organs, and structures.  This approach utilizes Dr. Ida Rolf's visionary recipe that addresses the clients' system holistically.  Clients' gain another level of awareness of their body through interaction and movement cueing during the work.  Observations and specific tests lend information on the individual needs of each client for a truly individualized approach.  Through the integrative journey, you'll experience your body, self, and the world with a new awareness.

Pilates of Athens is proud to announce our newest addition to our services...ROLFING!  CONGRATULATIONS JAMES FOR COMPLETING THE INTENSIVE ROLFING STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION CERTIFICATION!!!  What is Rolfing you ask?  Rolfing SI is a formulaic approach addressing the structure's relationship with gravity through the Fascia, which connects all of our tissues.  Restrictive adhesions reduce the bodies adaptability and support.  This work brings a higher order of function to the structure for greater freedom in your life.

No Pain, no Gain... NO WAY!

So much time is wasted away at the gym with little to show for it! It can be painful to even think of spending another hour doing the same routine.  -not to mention boring-

Pilates gets results through precision, concentration, and consistent repetition.  Pilates exercises are fun and challenging.  You will lose inches and feel strong deep inside.    

Pilates trains the mind, body, and breath to work together through an efficient series of exercises. Pilates is a full-body workout that treats the body as an integrated whole, instead of working on each part individually. It develops the body uniformly, helping to restore a state of ease and health.
