FREE 

The CT Challenge Center for Survivorship is offering free Mat Pilates classes for cancer survivors and caregivers, taught by instructors Erica Mara and Karen Oerth. Please RSVP to Tamara@ctchallenge.org to reserve your spot. Bring a mat and towel. Classes are being held at the Southport Galleries, 330 Pequot Avenue in Southport, directly across from the CT Challenge Center for Survivorship, under construction with an opening slated for June 2012. What is mat pilates? The mat pilates exercise routine is performed on the ground using an exercise mat. The key to performing mat pilates exercises well is to focus on breathing. The exercises in mat pilates focus on strengthening the muscles of the hips, back, abdominals, and glutes (what is known in pilates as the powerhouse.)
