Walking, Functional Movement and Nourishment
with Sophie Plato
Sophie is a passionate and dedicated advocate of Pilates, having discovered the transformative power of this exercise method following major knee surgery. Sophie aims to teach in a way that enhances daily life. Classes are heavily inspired by the original Joseph Pilates 'Contrology' method, which focuses on exercising the whole body (rather than spot training) and embodies 'movement as medicine’ and a way of life rather than just an exercise. Clients often report dramatic shifts in their body awareness, reduction of pain, increased agility and a renewed sense of confidence in their everyday movement. Sophie strives to teach her clients not only how to move their bodies but also how to move with purpose, grace and efficiency. Through the integration of breath work and mindful techniques, she guides her clients to tune in to their bodies on a deeper level promoting focus, moving meditation, and an overall sense of calm.
Sophie also recognises the enormous power of walking and community in bringing people together. She believes that through movement and adventure, friendships are formed, strengthening not only bodies, but also minds, hearts, and souls.
We will meet at the Tichborne Arms at 8.30am, then after enjoying a delicious cup of coffee and tranquil stroll through Tichborne, we will unroll our mats and allow Sophie to guide us through a series of invigorating, whole-body, functional movement exercises. These exercises will help us to build deep core strength, increase flexibility and leave our every joint feeling as though it has been given a revitalising touch of WD-40! After building up an appetite on the mat we will all enjoy a delicious and nutritious breakfast.
