Classes & Schedule
The focus of Pilates is based on nine principals: Centering, Concentration, Control, Precision, Breathing, Rhythm/Flow, Balanced Muscle Development, Whole Body Movement, and Relaxation. This makes Pilates truly a workout for the mind, body, and spirit. Symmetry, control, and flexibility are stressed.
A Pilates session is 55 minutes in length and is composed of a combination of apparatus and matwork.
GROUP Activity - 10 People Max
Pilates mat classes focus on developing core strength, flexibility, balance and stamina. A series of exercises at multiple levels inclusive for a beginning, intermediate, or advanced pace. Students learn to be aware of breathing patterns and spinal alignment while engaging the deep muscles of the core. Various props (e.g. flex bands, foam rollers, rings, light weights, and balls) are incorporated to enhance and intensify the workout. No previous Pilates experience is necessary to join a mat class. (Drop-In OK).
GROUP Activity - 4 people max
Small group equipment classes utilize the primary Pilates apparatus. The spring resistance of this specialized equipment provides a challenging, bone strengthening endurance workout. Best of all, the equipment is easily customizable for the user which allows individuals to work at an appropriate fitness level. Visible results can be seen after a dozen or so regular sessions. We suggest you start with our discounted introductory package of 3 sessions to learn the basics before you get started in a group class.
Private Pilates Session
Through careful one-on-one teaching, clients learn the order of the exercises, the principles of Pilates, equipment setup, and the system of exercises that is right for their body and their personal fitness goals. Private sessions allow the instructor to develop a customized system of exercises to address each client’s needs, goals, and previous injuries.
Duet Pilates Session
When two students share a workout we refer to it as a semi-private session. These sessions are similar to privates in that you and your workout partner receive more personalized attention than you would in a small group equipment class. It is a fun and healthy way to spend time with a friend or loved one.
Trio Pilates Session
Bring in friends, a partner, spouse or co-worker to work out. One instructor per three participants scheduled at a time of client convenience. Duets and trios sign up for same times and prepay. Partners should be free of orthopedic issues and injuries. Any rescheduling should be done as a duet or trio; if only one participant is able to attend a scheduled session, single participant will pay private session fee.
