Pilates

Pilates is a low impact form of exercise that strengthens, lengthens and tones your body. It focuses on working the intrinsic muscles creating stability, balance and proper postural alignment. Pilates is the ultimate conditioning program for creating a strong core, mobility and flexibility. The benefits practicing Pilates are many, and people from all walks of life and various states of fitness experience positive results from doing it. People over the age 50 find that the low impact work allows them to workout without putting too much stress on their joints. Athletes are able to increase flexibility, range of motion, hip stability and overall core power.  For those that sit at a computer for most of their day Pilates is a great way to relieve the stress put on the spine that come from sitting for hours at a time. Many people come to us with chronic pain, low back, shoulder and hip issues and find that we are able to help alleviate that pain. We have often been successful in doing so when physical therapy and other programs have failed.

Livestreaming Pilates Classes



Mat

  • Mat class is the basic "floor" work of Pilates. This type of work focuses on building the strength of the abdominals, hips, back, and glutes...all the areas that we consider the "core." We offer a few different types of mat classes; an "advanced mat" class for people who have been doing Pilates for a while and are relatively strong in their core (great for athletes, dancers, and experienced Pilates people), and a basic "mat" class that is appropriate for just about everyone, a "mat/props" class that uses simple weights and bands, and a "foam roller" class that uses a foam roller for some surprisingly challenging work.
