PRIVATE SESSION
One-on-one Session tailored to meet your unique needs and individual goals. We recommend Privates for beginners, those with special conditions such as injuries or chronic pain, those who prefer exclusive instruction, and for periodic refinement of technique. You will be strategically guided through exercises on mat and a variety of equipment.

GROUP CLASSES

Classes are offered from beginner to advanced levels. Pilates Matwork classes are limited to 10 participants per class and reformer classes are limited to 4 participants per class. All classes are 60 minutes in length, unless otherwise noted. Classes are for healthy bodies free of recent injury and pain.

MELT props and small pieces of equipment are provided for all classes to heighten core challenge or increase postural awareness.

MATWORK CLASSES
Pilates Matwork is the foundational work that incorporates all of the Pilates principles of control, centering, concentration, breathing, precision and flow. Participants are guided through a dynamic series of exercises on the mat (floor) that progress with skill level. Matwork classes may incorporate balls, the Pilates circle, MELT soft rollers, and other fitness tools.

REFORMER CLASSES
The Reformer is a spring tension and pulley based piece of equipment. It incorporates spring resistance with assistance to elongate and align the body while in motion. Exercises are performed in a specific sequence with an emphasis on flow and precision. The MELT Method is also incorporated in the classes to enhance a deep feeling of core recruitment, while balancing the body’s nervous system.


GROUP MATWORK CLASS LEVELS

Classes are offered from beginner to advanced levels.

MELT ON PILATES MATWORK
Perfect for the participant new to Pilates but also amazing for the person who is knowledgeable in the Pilates repertoire but is craving a deeper core connection. At this level, participants will learn how to engage the deep core muscles at the spine, shoulder and pelvic girdle while balancing the nervous system and releasing tension in the muscles that leads to dysfunctional movement patterns. Experience a well-rounded, moderate paced workout with emphasis on increased coordination, breath capacity, precise control, and concentration while building strength in both the core and extremities. Participants will be introduced to the Pilates vocabulary, exercise names, and sequence of exercises, while acquiring whole body balance. **This class is intended for the participant who is free of pain and recent injury.

ESSENTIAL MATWORK/FLOORWORK
Building upon the basics, this level aims to increase your experience, skills, and strength while challenging the musculoskeletal an neuorological pathways through a quickened pace and lengthened levers. Participants will be asked to perform the flowing Pilates movements with increased breath capacity, mental control, and greater control of the core. Transitions, which connect one exercise to the next, are also introduced.

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED MATWORK/FLOORWORK
These classes move at a quicker tempo and assume that students understand the basic choreography of each exercise and are becoming more familiar with transitions. Students will be challenged with more complicated exercises, greater range of motion, and more dynamic, flowing movements. Although the class moves at pace, there is still some time devoted to fine tuning and looking closely at specific exercises. For participants experienced, skilled, and strong in their Pilates practice, who are now honing more powerful core strength and control, pelvic and shoulder stability, spinal articulation and overall uniform development.


GROUP REFORMER CLASSES

INTRO TO REFORMER
