Pilates Pole Classes
What is it?
Our Pilates pole classes are performed on a special wall unit, which is an adaptation of the trapeze table – a unique piece of Pilates equipment. Exercises are performed that help you to correct any imbalances, build strength, power and stability and help achieve greater mobility within the body and spine. You will use springs and straps to move and perform exercises, which range from gentle to advanced depending on your capabilities and goals.
How do I know which class to book?
An assessment or perhaps a one-on-one introductory sessions with one of our friendly expert teachers is required before joining a Pilates pole class.
There are never more than 8 people in any class at The Hundred Wellness Centre Dubai and we divide our classes according to level so that our clients can really reap the very best benefits from each session.
Beginner Level – This level is for those who are new to Pilates or for those who may have an injury and need to take it a little slower. In this class you will learn the fundamental exercises that create the foundation of how to move safely with proper hip/spine alignment, transitioning from one exercise to the other, learning how to stabilize using the mind body concentration for fluid, smooth, flowing and centering movement along with proper breathing. This class is a prerequisite for the higher level classes listed below. You must be in good health with no special considerations to take this class.
Beginner/Intermediate Level – This class level provides additional pole exercises and/or advancement of existing exercises. You will be challenged with a faster pace and be introduced to new exercises to challenge the mind body connection, increase endurance and improve neuromuscular control and coordination. You will begin to learn to transition quickly between the exercises and link them into a flowing, graceful and efficient workout with increased range of motion as the body becomes stronger and more balanced. Instructor approval is required to take this class.
Intermediate Level – This class builds on the exercises from the Beginner/Intermediate Level class. The exercises become more challenging, and the pace of the class is faster – therefore more strength, stamina and coordination are required. Instructor approval is required to take this class.
Advanced Level – This class is dedicated to extremely experienced students who have been doing Pilates for a while. This class uses full choreographed repertoire and a faster pace maintaining a centered core and flowing breath. Instructor approval is required to take this class.
