The principle of Flow in a Mat Class

Module 1 of Mat Intensive
(this workshop is recognized by the DPV and PVA as continuing education)

Fluent transitions from one exercise to the other and the choreography/variations of individual exercises are the essentials of a mat class. Flow is one of the ten principles from Joseph Pilates and therefore of a BASI mat class. The structuring of a class according to the BASI Block System offers a great support in terms of methodology and anatomy, gives the class a clear structure and at the same time provides flexibility.

With the aspect of flow, concentration can be maintained throughout the whole class and unnecessary breaks can be avoided.

A clear structure and clear transitions enable the instructor to conduct larger groups and to manage different levels and at the same time giving each participant a secure and responsible guidance. The challenge of instructing beginners and maintaining the flow at the same time will be discussed as well.

After a short theory section, the focus of this workshop is on the mat work repertoire and developing variations and transitions. The day will be concluded with a BASI mat class.
