Unit(s): 1.00

Prerequisite:KINA 136
Transfers to:UC,CSU

KINA 236 is a continuation of KINA 136, and builds upon the basic Pilates Mat exercises covered in KINA 136. The exercises in this course are designed to further increase strength in the abdominal and spinal musculature. Students engage in exercises and learn how to utilize props (e.g., magic circles, stretch/exercise bands, mini balls, gliders, and hand weights) designed to further increase awareness of body alignment, torso strength, and spine and limbs as well as to increase endurance while fine-tuning breathing techniques utilized in strength training exercises. Additionally, students advance their coordination and balance, and learn about the muscle groups and their actions being utilized during traditional Pilates Mat work. This course is suitable for students interested in conditioning, dance, athletics, and fitness, or those seeking to increase overall strength to better support the spine in everyday activities. The course is required for the Mat Pilates Teacher Training Certificate.
