”Pilates is the complete coordination of mind, body and spirit” – Joseph Pilates
For those curious to try a new fitness routine that combines the mind/body benefits of yoga with the core-engaging vigor of Pilates, our Pilates Reformer Classes are for you!
Pilates strengthens the core, stretches the body and corrects posture through mindful breathing and disciplined movements. Clients gain flexibility, improve spinal alignment, reduce stress, and develop a healthier life and vibrant spirit.
The Pilates Reformer is a specially designed piece of equipment which allows for over 200 exercises designed to tone and lengthen muscles. Using springs and pulleys to increase the work load and assist with stretching and strengthening, Reformer classes are different from traditional mat Pilates because they work the whole body, taking the dynamic workout to a whole new level. Great for all fitness levels from beginners to athletes.
Before signing up for a class, you must sign up for a mandatory intro series. You will learn the benefits of Pilates and become familiar with the equipment with the guidance of an experienced instructor. Those with previous experience must get instructor approval to attend a class. To sign up for the intro series contact Carlie Snyder at 559-6202 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
