Contemporary Pilates (matwork)

Karina and Unique Balance offers mat based Contemporary Pilates, in Mandurah, Western Australia. Karina runs both community Pilates and small group/one-on-one sessions in her private studio.

Contemporary Pilates is suitable for general exercise as well as for therapy. Often Karina will prescribe Pilates and myofascial movement exercises to her clients for on-going self care.

Pilates and myofascial movement training is great for short term goals

such as pain-free movement & functional strength,

as well as long term goals, such as physical balance and movement adaptability.

Pilates and myofascial movement training doesn’t just focus on core strength, instead aims to improve and maintain postural ease and efficiency – allowing us to sit, stand or move with minimal effort in our day-to-day lives.

Freedom and efficiency of movement, body strength & balance, improved body awareness

better posture, greater stability and adaptability are just some of the outcomes from Pilates

In Contemporary Pilates we are moving the body in all directions using all different kinds of body positions. We also tune into the body and sense subtlety, so some of the exercises are performed reasonably slow, allowing enough time to differentiate the movement, to relax through the outer muscles and to get to the deeper muscles and build up strength.

Karina will focus on breath and movement, making meaningful body and

mind connections that you can apply to all aspects of your life

The magic is in the choreography and Karina will always keep her clients in mind during a class. Karina will educate with correct technique and show appropriate variations if necessary.

This is a holistic movement approach that offers us a way for our bodies to develop dynamic flow and core strength as well as improved tissue elasticity and adaptability.

The human body has a complex fascial system. Slings Myofascial Training® is the most in-depth movement concept which adds a new dimension to the Pilates movement practice.

Karina will expertly choreograph Pilates exercises to include Slings Myofascial Training® techniques to give you the best opportunity to explore your body’s movement spectrum. This is fresh, current and advanced research rolled into a dynamic movement technique !

You become more present and aware of every muscle and fascial connection in your body. This movement has profoundly given my body a new sense of ease of motion that never existed before. It has changed the way I think about my body and how I move in the world. It has also enlightened my spiritual and emotional connection of the physical body as well. I am really excited to be able to bring this to my community and share this incredible knowledge that fits so well into my Pilates and Remedial Massage knowledge base
