Have you been practicing Pilates matwork at your gym, health club, or at home with DVD’s and books on Pilates?

If yes, “The inside Scoop on Pilates: Beginning Matwork” app is for you!

The Inside Scoop on Pilates: Beginning Matwork is written by Erin Chase Alexander, a Pilates instructor certified on all Pilates apparatus, with training in both Classical and Contemporary styles of Pilates, and over 10 years experience teaching Pilates in gyms, health clubs, and studios. It provides the inside scoop on how to get the most out of Pilates exercises, general tips for success, do’s and don’ts, and details in depth 18 beginning matwork exercises.

The Inside Scoop: Beginning Matwork is presented in four tabs: “The Scoop”, “Exercises”, “Quiz”, and “Class”. The “Scoop” tab includes a detailed introduction on Pilates, an in depth discussion on the guiding principles, and body mechanics, of all Pilates exercises, and includes a glossary of Pilates lingo. The “Exercises” tab covers 18 beginning exercises in-depth, including the main focus of each exercise, how many repetitions for each, the starting position, the breath pattern with corresponding movement, tips for success to get the most out of each exercise, modifications, and modifications with props.

For quick reference one can listen to an audio teaching of the exercise, that includes tips for success. Also included are photos of the full version of each exercise, along with photos of modifications with and without props. The “Quiz” tab quizzes you on your knowledge of the names of the exercises, what modifications are used for each exercise, and what the focus is of each exercise. The final “Class” tab is a full audio class leading you through the 18 exercises covered in the “Exercise” section.
