Beg/Int Reformer Pilates
This class is designed for anyone who wants to refine the essential principles of Pilates. You can be guaranteed to see more results out of all your workouts when you accurately understand how to activate the deeper layers of the core, align the bones of your spine and pelvis and maintain an active and connected breath.
If you have recently begun practicing Pilates, we recommend you start with this class level. However, even the most advanced students will benefit from mastering the detailed review this class will cover.
Note: If you have no previous Pilates experience and are not familiar with using a reformer you should sign up for an initial private session with one of our instructors prior to taking this class. We offer this at a discounted price of $40.
Int/Adv Chair and Mat
Want to get more of an aerobic challenge with your Pilates practice? Then reserve your spot! This class is a great cardio option utilizing the jump or trampoline apparatus on the Reformer. Class will incorporate the fun and dynamic aspect of the jump board while we take time to focus on proper biomechanics of jumping and landing. Extra care will be given to your feet, ankles and core positioning to help you strengthen your whole body.
Note: This is an advanced class. Please do not sign up for this class unless you have Pilates experience on the Reformer. Please inquire with an instructor if you have any questions.
