Pilates is an innovative and complete mind-body, resistance-based workout using both your own body’s resistance and external resistance in the form of the Pilates equipment, balls, and light weights.

Pilates focuses on your core mind-body connection of breath to movement. We work with slower, more conscious resistance-based movement, focusing on form and working the muscles in proper posture and neutral spine alignment, to strengthen your core, improve your flexibility, posture, and balance, and help prevent and relieve pain symptoms.

Don’t be frightened by the medieval-torture-looking equipment! We swear it’s good for you.

Sessions are broken down into 3 categories:

Introductory (for New Clients)
All new clients must go through a private lesson with one of our instructors, even if you’ve practiced Pilates before. This lessons consists of a physical and postural assessment, proper postural engagement review, basic Pilates principles, and trying out the Pilates reformer. It allows you and your future instructor to get to know each other, too!

Dedicated one-on-one session with your instructor. This is especially recommended for those working through chronic pain or an injury that requires special attention.

Semi-privates have the benefit of personal attention with a significant difference in cost. Either bring a partner or we can find a partner for you. The latter, however, does take a little longer as many of our semi-private clients are already paired or can only work out at specific times. If your schedule can be accommodating, we will do our best to accommodate you!

If your partner is unable to make the appointment and cancels before our 24 hour cancellation policy, you are given the option to upgrade to a private for $30, do a half hour private for the same price, or cancel your lesson at no cost to you.
