If you have no prior experience with Pilates or need a serious refresher, this is the beginner class for you. In the first class, you will learn the basic principles of Pilates which are key to performing the exercises safely and effectively. As you move through the six-week program, you will learn the Pilates beginner repertoire on mat and reformer. In mat work, your own body provides the resistance, working against gravity to build strength, flexibility and endurance. On the Pilates reformer, springs, pulleys and the levers of the reformer machine assist or provide more challenge to your workout. With only 5 people in the class, you will garner close attention from the instructor to ensure proper form and alignment. This class runs in a 6-week series.

Exercises are broad level so those with injuries or specific physical conditioning goals should seek out private or semi-private lessons.
