Class Descriptions

  • Gentle Pilates - Mat & Chair
    With a strong focus on the fundamentals, this class offers a gentle option appropriate for people with injuries and beginners. We build core strength in a safe and effective way, and also incorporate releasing and stretching techniques. We use the mat and small props, such as arcs, balls, rollers, rings, wobble discs, and therabands, and from time to time we use the Wunda Chair (see photo above).

  • Intermediate/Advanced Pilates - Mat & Chair
    Students in this class have a strong interest and curiosity about exploring the depth of the Pilates work. From the simplest fundamentals to the most wild and woolly choreography, how can we more deeply experience and enjoy movement? Significant Pilates experience is actually not required for this class - I can teach the repertoire. What is required is a fairly high level of general fitness, a reasonable level of proprioception (the ability to know where your body is in space and sense what is happening in your body), and most of all, the interest! We use the mat and small props, such as arcs, balls, rollers, rings, wobble discs, and therabands, and from time to time we use the Wunda Chair (see photo above).
