Each 9-class series is sponsored by Portland Community College. Summer semester 2019 runs June 24 – August 30.  You’ll meet the same day & time each week with options for make-up classes if you’ve planned some summer travels. Each week of class builds on the last, so you learn systematically rather than getting stuck in a rut or jumping in over your head. We’ll have assessments from time to time to check in on your progress. All classes are limited to 8 participants; each student has their own set of equipment.

Small Group Pilates Reformer + Tower Level 1 

Perfect for students new to Pilates. Build core and full-body strength while improving your flexibility using the Pilates Reformer and Tower machines. We’ll work on the basics and get back into fitness in this slower paced class.

Newbies begin with Level 1 starting with the vocabulary and concepts behind Classical Pilates. No worries, you’ll be moving from Day 1! Learning the “secret sauce” behind Pilates movements will give you results you can count on. You can take those concepts into other workouts and into the way you use your body in your daily life.
