Now introducing to the platform... Pilates with Tanya Mgrdechian (Instagram: HERE)!
Have you ever tried mat pilates?
What can you expect?
Mat Pilates is a pilates training practice that can be done on a mat, meaning, no reformer is used. In this class, you hold movements like planks, side planks, and core exercises to build your muscles and core strength. Much of the equipment that you find in a reformer class can also be used in a pilates mat workout. Your instructor will give you options to use bands, exercise balls, and sometimes even small weights to help level-up your pilates experience. Tanya is an expert in giving you modifications and what things you can use around the home to replace the props commonly used to accentuate the poses and aide your form for proper engagement of muscles being targeted.
With pilates, micro-adjusting your movements could be the difference between targeting the right muscles and injury. Our instructors will be there to help you find ways to modify each exercise to fit your needs, whether you’re new to the practice or have been practicing pilates for years.
Let's get to know Tanya a lil'...
QUESTION: What is your favorite yoga pose/why?
TANYA: "Dancer's pose. It’s beautiful! It allows me to use my grace, strength, balance and flexibility, all of which make me feel empowered inside and out. It’s also very grounding which I love and always a challenge."
Q: What is your least favorite pose right now/why?
TANYA: "Plow pose. I feel very closed off and restricted. I think it's especially uncomfortable now because of the chaos in the world and my need to be open and free. But honestly, isn’t that the point of yoga? We must face what makes us uncomfortable."
Q: What lessons from the yoga mat have you applied off your mat?
TANYA: "Breathe through the difficult times. We can learn a lot about ourselves from the most challenging moments. Nothing is permanent. That which challenges us can only make us stronger."
Q: Do you have a guilty pleasure/binged watch anything etc., during quarantine?
TANYA: "Red wine, coffee, thrillers on Netflix…and rather than eating too much, forgetting to eat because I’m always working out or teaching!"
Q: What is your post-class meal craving?
TANYA: "Homemade acai bowl with fresh fruit, greens and protein."
Tanya will be LIVE for her debut 45-minute class on Thursday 10/29/2020 at 5:30pm.
