We Teach Contemporary and Restorative Pilates

Contemporary Pilates is based upon the original work of Joseph Pilates. However, this has been adapted to today’s research about the body, biomechanics, and the field of rehabilitation.

Pilates was originally created when most of the general population worked in labor rather than offices. A contemporary take on Pilates takes a more current and functional approach on how we use our bodies every day.

Private Training

If you are new to using Pilates machines or Pilates classes, we recommend that you get started in a private training program before entering into the small group equipment classes.

In these private sessions, we have the opportunity to assess your gait, shoulder organization, spine and pelvis alignment, injuries, and muscle imbalances. The more we can discover about you, the better we may serve you in a class setting so that we may custom tailor each class or session to your needs.

The private sessions also allow you to learn the fundamentals and the machines so that when you enter a class, you may do so safely and with progress. It could be rather frustrating to spend the entire class trying to understand as opposed to feeling the beneficial movements.

After your private training sessions, we can help guide you into classes that best suit you. In some cases, we may suggest you combine the private classes with semi-private classes for those with particular needs.

Small Group Training (Six Clients per Session)

To experience the optimal benefits of a movement practice, it’s important to commit yourself regularly. We recommend a minimum training of 2-3 times per week, or more if you have time. Practicing Pilates on a consistent basis will accelerate your results and greatly enhance your overall health.
