It is our intent that you will leave the studio feeling centered, relaxed and with a happy heart. Gaiam Mats and other props provided for your Pilates practice.
Pilates Mat Level One:
With a strong focus on breathing and core engagement Pilates Mat Level 1 delves deep into the fundamentals of Pilates. Body awareness increases as we learn what it feels like to stabilize the spine and pelvis; moving within a safe range while simultaneously challenge the body. This class is for those who are new to the practice and for those who would like to dig deep into the true magic that is Pilates.
Pilates Mat Level Two:
Level 2 is for those who are ready to advance their current Pilates Practice. We will explore more advanced movements as our increased body awareness allows us to move closer to practicing with a neutral spine. This intense and active practice is meant to challenge the entire body as the breath strokes the fires of the core.
