"In 10 sessions, you'll feel different. In 20 sessions you'll look different.
And in 30 Sessions, you'll have a new body."
-- Joseph Pilates
What is Pilates?
Joseph Pilates developed his exercise method in the 1920s, originally calling it contrology. He defined contrology as the complete coordination of mind, body, and spirit. His classic exercises, and the equipment he designed, are the basis for our instruction. The exercise method, now called Pilates, enhances our connection to our body, working from the inside to the exterior. We focus on functional movement, breath, body alignment, improving flexibility, and developing strength.
What to Expect
We will welcome you into our studio and begin to learn about you and your personal goals. If you are new to Pilates or to our studio, we require three initial privates lessons. Once complete, a client may continue with private lessons or move into a group class with instructor approval. All classes are taught by experienced instructors, incorporating equipment and mat Pilates. Day and evening classes are available. Dress comfortably, but nothing too loose or baggy. We work in bare feet or non-slip toe socks. Group classes are small, no more than four clients, so individual attention is assured.
Pilates is for everybody, and every body, whether you are new to exercise or a seasoned athlete. If it is your first experience with Pilates, the initial three private lessons help us to learn about you and your goals. The one-on-one experience gets your body the attention it needs and safely introduces you to the equipment. Each lesson works on fundamental movements that translate into more advanced movements as you progress. Beginner group classes are scheduled as space permits.
