Spring Pilates
By systematically stretching and strengthening your body as an integrated whole, challenging core “powerhouse” muscles, and rewiring faulty mechanics, you'll restore proper alignment and work out muscular imbalances that otherwise lead to aches and pains.

Your new body awareness and ever increasing mind-body connection will help you achieve the technical precision required for maximum performance and svelte muscle tone. As your strength grows, so will your confidence. You'll feel it in your posture, coordination, flexibility, and joie de vie!

In-person class. Exceptions will be made only for returning students completed at least one full class session at the studio.
No refunds but make-ups are available during the Pilates portion of the adult ballet class on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-7:45pm. Must be scheduled in advance to confirm availability.
