Pilates is a process.

For this reason we require all students to start with the Intro For All: Essentials class regardless of athletic ability or prior Pilates experience (please feel free to call with any questions about this).
We begin building strength and stability in your visceral core—the pelvis and spine—and connect to the extremities in all our classes. These skills build upon each other and are challenged using a variety of props and equipment including the mat, reformer, jump board, balls, bands, blocks and, arc barrels. All group classes and sessions are 60 minutes in length unless otherwise specified. Our Essentials Level courses should not be considered passe by past pilates practitioners as we teach specific muscle m]balance and breathing control
