Mat exercises focus on the fundamental Pilates movements and principles: breath, centering, flow, control, precision, and concentration. At first glance the exercises might seem intimidating, but each can be modified to your body’s ability. Improve your flexibility, core strength, and mind-body awareness in a 45-minute to one-hour class.
Shake up your routine and reshape your body. This fun, upbeat class incorporates basic Pilates mat work and barre work for an intense and strength-building whole-body workout with special attention to ‘problem areas’ in the lower body. You’ll feel and see the difference!
Developed by Joseph Pilates, the Universal Reformer is the main piece of equipment used in the Pilates Method. Private sessions or Intro to Reformer classes will help you become comfortable with the spring resistance incorporated into this apparatus; through its repertoire, you lengthen your muscles while you tone. Your body will learn how to access its core fast, and you’ll improve balance, posture, flexibility, and strength.
Experience necessary. Class is limited to 4 students.
Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates
Stay fit during pregnancy for a smooth transition to postnatal workouts. Keep your body strong as it goes through changes to support the growth of your new child. If you want to try Pilates at any point in your pregnancy, please contact me prior to trying videos at home. The variety of exercise options available on the reformer allow pregnant clients to work in 4 points (hands and knees), seated, reclined, kneeling and side-lying positions. Postnatal mothers need to recuperate and restructure. Pilates focuses on pelvic floor strengthening, hip stability, and abdominal strengthening to help you feel like it’s all coming back together!
Aerial Pilates is a form of suspension training designed to improve body awareness, muscular strength, and flexibility in a safe, innovative, and encouraging environment.
