Working from the deepest layers of muscles, which stabilize and support your spine and pelvis, resulting in a strong, flexible spine with ideal posture and alignment. Classes emphasize the foundational principals of Pilates while offering modifications and variations to suit each students individual needs.

Our studio uses professional Pilates high mats with 2″ of high density foam for extra padding under your seat & knees & a soft cotton foot strap to assist with challenging core exercises to make the class accessible for ever body. Also equipped with a roll-over bar to help keep your shoulders connected in challenging exercises like Jackknife & the Roll-Over. High mats are reserved for those registered for the full 6-week session. Drop-ins welcome, however not guaranteed a high mat.
This sophisticated piece of equipment encourages length through the tissues, but also demands stability, focus and sustained effort. This is achieved through eccentric muscle contractions: the muscle lengthening as it resists force. This is what creates the long, lean bulk-free look Pilates is famous for producing.The perfect marriage of range of motion, strength & stretch brings about a holistic balance in the body.
On the reformer, there is no place for muscular and structural imbalances to hide. This is what makes it so perfect for people working with injuries, and other conditions. It encourages slow & controlled movement sets – the equilibrium of strength, and your body responds over time by correcting for over & under compensations that often are a natural outcropping of injuries & conditions like scoliosis.
