Pilates works the whole body rather than it’s parts. Classes are designed to: improve physical strength, flexibility, better posture, balance, and breathing. They enhance mental awareness and help to develop control and endurance of the body. Pilates classes will strengthen the core (power house) and will lead to the decrease of lower back pain and other related postural issues.
The 6-week Pilates intro course will focus on the main principles of Contrology as Joe Pilates taught it. Beginner and intermediate exercises will be introduced along with movement-based examples of their significance – you will feel this work!
As a class, we will discover the important role that abdominals play while we work to shrink that waistline.

This class is intended for beginner and beg-intermediate clients. A regular yoga practice is not requisite for participation!
