Group Reformer Classes
Many students enjoy the group setting and camaraderie that group classes offer. Additionally, group classes offer a more affordable option for students. Despite their larger size, group classes offer a personal and tailored experience, with classes no greater than six (6) for apparatus classes. Our group classes are creative and dynamic, offering something for every level and every body.
Private Pilates Sessions
In some instances, private sessions are often the most appropriate instruction option for clients. Private sessions allow for one-on-one attention, allowing clients to better meet specific goals or to tailor instruction to certain specific needs. Private sessions have flexibly proven to be great options for client athletes needing specific muscle group work as well as for those suffering from chronic pain/injury or those recovering following a surgery. Additionally, with professional instructors on site six days a week, private sessions have proven to be a great option for clients having limited schedules that otherwise inhibits regular attendance in group classes.
Semi-private sessions (limited to two or three students) still offer most of the advantages of a private teaching setting while having a smaller individual cost. Often people will schedule and attend semi-privates with a friend who shares similar fitness goals or who may need complimentary muscle/therapy work. In addition, semi-private sessions may be flexibly scheduled at client convenience.
GYROTONIC® is an exercise modality, developed by Julio Horvath that guides users to simultaneously stretch and strengthen muscles and tendons while also articulating and mobilizing the joints. Corresponding breathing patterns are engaged during the performance of the exercises, thereby increasing coordination, endurance and aerobic activity. This unique system offers the same benefits also derived from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai chi, but is not derived from these exercises modalities.
The repertoire consists of a series of specially designed exercises performed on equipment which is built around the human body with regards to total freedom in movement, no restriction to speed and versatility, and enhances rather than distracts from coordination, strength and flexibility. It emphasizes multiple joint articulations without compression, thus strengthening ligaments and each attachment.
The benefits include but are not limited to the following:
- Stretching and strengthening of the muscles
- Stimulating and strengthening connective tissue in and around the joints
- Increased functional capacity of the spine
- Greater awareness of spherical and three-dimensional body movement
- Greater sense of balance
- Increased breathing capacity
- Awakening of the body’s nervous system
- Cognitive connection to the body
