Private Lessons

Receive individualized attention from one of our highly trained teachers while working on the most high quality Pilates apparatus made today.  Whether you are just getting started or have been taking group classes for some time already, a private lesson is guaranteed to advance your practice the next level. For those who are injured or working with other physical limitations, your private lesson will be tailored to your body's specific needs and abilities. Private lessons are also a great way to prepare for a beginning apparatus class or to get strong enough to advance to the next level in your practice.


Duet Lessons

With more individualized attention than a class but the fun of having a buddy, duets are an economical way to get a lot of personal feedback on your Pilates practice. Having a partner is not only fun but also helps to keep your practice on track!  If you don't have a partner in mind, contact our front desk for help in finding one.  We always keep a list of clients looking for duet partners.

Mat and Reformer Flow: Our new Reformer and Mat classes are designed to help give you a well-rounded workout that includes both some spring support and some no-spring exercises, which is the way Joseph Pilates originally intended your Pilates practice to consist of.

50+ Apparatus Class: An all levels class utilizing all classical apparatus. This class is for people who are 50 or older. 


Mat Classes

Beginning Mat: This beginner level class is perfect for those who are brand new to Pilates or who want to deepen their fundamental skills.
Beg/Int Mat: A Mat Class for those who are ready to move beyond the fundamentals, pick up the pace a bit, and learn new exercises.
Int Mat: Rhythm and flow increase at this Intermediate Level, building endurance and control in your body.
Int/Adv & Advanced Mat: (Instructor approval required)  These classes are for Pilates Teachers, Teacher Trainees, and very experienced Classical Pilates students.                                                                                                        

Mat + Run: An all levels class combining mat Pilates, which will build heat and get you connected to your body, and then going out to enjoy breathing in the fresh air and running together as a group. 

Fundamental Movement: Pilates exercises are made up of combinations of various fundamental movement skills. In this class, we will work on breaking down the classical Pilates mat exercises into their fundamental components with the goal of refining and improving our technique and understanding of various movement principles. This class is appropriate for any skill and fitness level and is recommended for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of Pilates and work with an attention to detail, alignment and breath.

Gyrokinesis: The Gyrokinesis method uses breath and spiraling, circular movements connected in rhythmic, flowing sequences.  It opens energetic pathways and stimulates the nervous system.  It increases range of motion and builds functional strength throughout the body.  A committed Gyrokinesis practice leads to a greater sense of health and well being.  People find themselves more comfortable and at ease in their body.
