Traditional Reformer Classes
Our Reformer classes are limited in size to six people. This allows our teachers to focus on keeping you moving while also paying attention to correcting the small details in your technique. We find that more personal attention keeps you moving safely, and allows you to get maximum results from your Pilates classes. You get more of the benefits of a private session without the high cost.
Traditional Pilates Classes.
A traditional, or contemporary Pilates class focuses on the exercises developed by Joseph Pilates and his wife Clara while allowing for advances in sports science and our developing understanding of anatomy, and how the human body moves. Mr. Pilates looked to his favorite sports and activities and found exercises that would heal the body from within and with them created the Pilates Method.
In traditional classes we stick with the Pilates Method with an understanding that the movements are already athletic in nature, so there is little need to “fuse” current popular exercise trends into a class. We let the Pilates be Pilates and focus on quality of movement, rather than simply being out of breath with sore abs.
We don’t throw out the baby with the bath water, so to speak and the result is a challenging workout that is safe, works for all experience levels and will leave you feeling healthy and put you in a great mood!
We run our Reformer Classes in the mornings 7 days a week, and in the evenings Monday through Thursday.
