Sune du Toit and Associates believe strongly in prevention rather than cure, and so in 2017 Sune added Pilates classes to their range of services. Pilates is a system of exercises that are designed to improve core physical strength, flexibility and posture, leading to enhanced awareness of our bodies. Sune places particular importance on alignment and breathing to develop a strong core and improve balance. Many clients, both sporting and general, have aches and pains that have been made worse by poor posture or weak core strength. By offering pilates, Sune is keen to address many of these issues before they become problems.
Sune's pilates classes are limited to 10 clients, to ensure that each person gets an individually tailored programme within the session. While everyone will follow a similar lesson plan, individuals will be extended or supported based on their own personal needs. Sune uses equipment such as balls, rollers and therabands to ensure that everyone is worked to the optimal level so that you leave a class feeling you have worked hard, but not worried that you will have injured any muscles.
This individual corrective nature of the class is enabled by the 15 minute ABC session which Sune runs before classes. This allows her to assess the clients while teaching them the basics of pilates - Alignment Breathing and Core.
Postural education is a continuous process. It is recommended that pilates is practiced at least 3 hours a week. However, our lives are busy and this is not always possible or practical. Being part of an exercise group increases motivation tremendously to continue with exercises on a daily basis. Sune's classes have a light-hearted feel, and while the benefits of the class are serious - the clients rarely are!
