Mat Work Pilates Vs Reformer Pilates Marbella Spain
Pilates is a fantastic form of exercise that develops flexibility, strengthening, toning and balancing our body - while also connecting to our breathing and positive mindset.
Tracy is qualified in the teaching of both mat work Pilates and reformer Pilates but for her Mat work when taught correctly is the superior practice.
“A Mat work Pilates class is done entirely on the mat, which means you’ll be controlling your own body weight against the resistance of gravity. This provides a good level of challenge to people.”
Mat work incorporates all Pilates Principles
Pilates, especially when practiced on the Mat, incorporates every Pilates principle—Concentration, Control, Breath, Flow and Precision.
“To be successful in Mat work, we must connect our mind to our movement to improve our overall coordination and strength. This amount of focus can be challenging—and is the reason why Mat Pilates as opposed to Reformer Pilates is so effective. We must tune into these principles within our own body without the distraction of the equipment.”
Mat Is More Challenging Than Equipment Work
For most a Mat work Pilates class in Marbella will prove more challenging, as we are working with your own body weight, without the aid of the equipment’s springs, and need to work deeper and more intuitively to find our balance, alignment and resistance against gravity.

With a stronger inner unit, you will be less vulnerable, and less likely to ever injure yourself.
