Reformer Pilates

This class is a MUST TRY! The instructor utilizes the amazing piece of Pilates equipment, called the Reformer. The classes are small in size to ensure you receive exceptional instruction, intelligent sequencing, and personalized feedback every single time!  Our state of the art reformers use spring resistance, infinity footbars, and specialized props for targeted strengthening, stretching, and to maximize your body’s potential. Reformer Jumpboard uses a padded Jumpboard at the end of our Allegro 2 Reformers similar to how you would use a trampoline.

Springboard Pilates

This class uses a wall-mounted Springboard apparatus and elements of Pilates mat for a brilliant full-body workout with resistance.  We apply a range of spring tensions to tone muscles and challenge core stability. Springs move individually, instead of as a pair. The separate springs emphasize asymmetries, as you challenge your extremities independently. The springboard creates infinite functional movement combinations that are certain to challenge both newbies and seasoned Pilates devotees alike. You will learn about your body and feel stronger after our Pilates Spring classes!

Pilates Chair

The Pilates Chair is one of the most challenging pieces of Equipment. This small but mighty apparatus will challenge your balance and stability like no other. We recommend already having a fair amount of Pilates experience before jumping into this class. The split pedal design of this chair will allow for single-limb isolations increasing your coordination and proprioception.

Yoga 

Yoga is an ancient practice brought to us by the gurus of India based on the writing in the Hatha Pradipika. Yoga combines breathing techniques, movement, stillness, and mindfulness to create a practice that unifies mind and body. We offer many forms of yoga all with varying levels of movement intensity, stretch, and stillness. All our yoga classes end in a savasana or corpse pose. 

Flow Yoga: Poses sequenced together and flowing at one breath per movement. Physically challenging. 

 

Slow Flow Yoga: Slow-moving sequences of multiple breaths per movement, ending in a stretch focus. Also offered as a gentle version.

Yin Yoga: Yin postures are held for three to five minutes to allow your body time to move into deeper connective tissues.

 

Restore Yoga: This practice uses props to be fully supported and very little to no stretch is felt. This is to provide total body relaxation and support.
