open quotesAs a long time practitioner of Iyengar yoga, I am surprised at how much I benefit from Pilates. After a Pilates class I feel taller and stand straighter with an emphasis on core strength. Pilates is the perfect compliment to my yoga practice.close quote

open quotesMarilyn’s instruction and knowledge are exceptional. She takes the time to instruct each student making certain that everyone in the class understands the correct move. Marilyn also coaches during the entire class and provides terminology and examples of each area that is being worked and the proper way of doing so. Classes are informational, instructive, and personal and I thoroughly enjoy the time with Marilyn. She is encouraging, fun and motivational.close quote

Where Do I Begin?
anita and erinThe basics of all Pilates exercises are introduced in the mat fundamentals. A solid understanding of these fundamentals will facilitate your progress and learning in both mat and equipment exercises. This is why we suggest starting in a basic mat class.

Understand that basic doesn't necessarily mean easy. In fact, many seasoned practioners attend a basic class every now and then to refresh their knowledge and re-apply these concepts in a more advanced class or on the equipment.

If you desire personal, one-on-one attention, we suggest a few private lessons. This enables the teacher to tailor the hour to fit your needs. For instance, if you are recovering from surgery, have any back, neck or spinal issues, or other physical concerns that need attention, a private is the best place to start. Group equipment classes are not conducive to addressing major individual issues.

Our teachers are all certified instructors, with varied backgrounds, able to meet your needs and make modifications that make the exercises just right for you. If an exercise is painful, it shouldn't be done, but if the exercise is just hard, that tells you that you have room for improvement and you will improve over time.

Most clients combine mat or equipment classes with a private or duet session each week.

Mat Classes
mat class Mat classes are an excellent way to begin learning Pilates principles or to supplement group or private instruction on the equipment. You can choose from three levels of mat instruction:

  • The Very Beginner—A true beginner’s class designed to establish good fundamental skills. Ideal for those new to the Pilates Method who want to learn the basic technique. Gain insight into what the core is, (more than just the “abs”) and how it works. Discover why Pilates will enhance every other workout you do including yoga, weights, and sports. If no first timers are present, the class will progress at the teacher’s discretion.
  • Mixed Level Class—This class offers multi-level exercises, incorporating challenging moves. Patterns of movement are repeated, helping you become aware of how Pilates exercises and principals carry over into activities outside of the studio. Standing balances, dynamic movements and challenging sequences are a regular part of this workout. Spinal movements take on a new meaning. You can look forward to plank, side plank, and forearm planks in this class.

Frequently, props such as the Magic Circle, Theraband, foam roller, yoga blocks, and blankets are used to provide support and to challenge the body during mat exercises.

Check the schedule for mat class days and times. All mat classes are offered on a drop-in basis; no advance sign-up is required. Classes are 50 minutes long.

Mat Class Fees:
Individual class: $20.00, check or cash at the studio
Package: 8 for $132 / 16 for $240. Purchase online or by cash or check at the studio.

Equipment Classes
parakeet Mixed equipment classes may use the full suite of Pilates equipment or focus on one piece. These classes assume you have taken personal training sessions and have become familiar with Pilates fundamentals and the use of the equipment. . Pilates Equipment classes explore the core from every angle. The spine’s stability and mobility are fully challenged and fully engaged throughout the entire repertoire of equipment exercises. The body will experience movements through several planes, and functional movements will also be introduced. Expect to sweat and increase your heart rate once you have learned and become proficient in the basics. It takes time, but it is well worth the effort.

Reformer only equipment classes will focus on the Universal Reformer only and will progress through Basic and Intermediate Level exercises, adding advancements and modifications according to class participants' skill level. Your body will like the support and challenge offered by the Reformer. Your leg and hip musculature will begin to loosen up and you will discover how releasing tight hips can actually relieve back stiffness and pain. This class is not designed for the beginning student. Limited to 6.

Jumpboard on the Reformer
Invigorate your whole body with jumping on the Reformer. Core and upper body activities while you jump create a whole body aerobic workout. Changing jumping patterns exercise your brain too! At 30 minutes, it's a great class on its own. Or take it before an equipment class for a complete Pilates workout.

A Beginner Equipment series is offered periodically. This class is designed for anyone new to Pilates or interested in learning the Pilates equipment. It is recommended that you take this series one or more times or take private sessions before enrolling in group equipment classes. Check the schedule or call the studio to learn when the next beginner series is scheduled. Advance registration is required. Space is limited.
