No fuss, no muss. Let’s get right to it.
There's no question that props can add variety and challenge to a class but sometimes a mat workout with no accessories can be the most challenging one of all.
On the mat you have to control all your own body weight, and you can’t rely on the springs, bands, balls or other props to help you. Navigating the movements while figuring out what parts of the body to use is challenging for muscles, joints and the brain as well. Mat work forces you to stay focused on your body and on your movement in a different way than exercise involving props or machines.
This development of overall body organization translates to activities off the mat. Once your body learns how to move, stabilize and function correctly, you will notice improvements in all your movement whether it’s unloading the dishwasher or running a 5k.
