Private Pilates Instruction
The optimal way to learn Pilates. Each session is tailored specifically for each individual’s needs, maximizing the benefits of Pilates. Private instruction includes individual attention with a certified Pilates instructor, which allows the instructor to develop a workout program specific to your body, and your goals. Sessions may include work on the Reformer, Cadilac, Wunda Chair, Small Barrel, and mat work.
Semi-Private and Trio Sessions
The semi-private sessions (two students) and trio sessions (three students) are a cost-effective way to get the benefits of working on the Pilates equipment with an instructor. Each student’s level, limitations, and personal goals are addressed at each session. It is recommended that partners are at similar skill levels and have prior experience on the Pilates equipment. Therefore, at least 3 private sessions are required before starting semi-private and trio sessions.
Integrative training is a full body conditioning program involving a combination of Pilates and
resistance training. Using dumbbells, therabands, and stability balls, special attention is given to improving muscular strength by focusing on eccentric muscular contractions to achieve optimum results. Not only will you look and feel better, studies have shown that just 2 weight sessions a week can decrease your risk of developing osteoporosis. Combine these benefits with the 500 designated movements of Pilates, and you too can achieve core stability, tone, and elongate muscles as well as improve your energy level and outlook on life.
Private Gyrotonic® Sessions
Gyrokinesis® is a group fitness class based on the principles of yoga, ballet, swimming, Tai Chi, and modern dance. It incorporates self-massage, the graceful, flowing movements of dance, and the breathing techniques and postures of yoga. The movements performed in this class are continuous and energizing. They awaken the entire body, improve overall well-being, and challenge both the mind and body in a completely new and unique way.
