Class Descriptions

  • Level 1 – for Newbies: choose this if you are brand-new to Pilates Equipment. There are many moving parts and new terms to learn while you’re getting a workout.
  • Level 2: choose this class if you would appreciate a class that focuses on core concepts rather than more advanced exercises. Please do not choose this class if you do not have experience with Pilates machines.
  • Level 3: choose this class if you have experience using the Pilates Reformer and Cadillac/Tower AND you would like to work on more advanced exercises. This class moves at a faster pace and involves more exercises that require weight-bearing on your hands/wrists. Please do not choose this class if you do not have experience with Pilates machines.
  • Tip for Newbies: if you haven’t exercised in quite awhile, you may benefit from taking a few private sessions prior to the start of the Level 1 series. Private sessions are all about you and whatever your body needs.
  • Tip for those who have taken a break from Pilate for a bit: consider taking 1 private session to evaluate where you are and what you should focus on in class.
  • Tip for Athletes: if you’re athletic and think you’d prefer the Level 3 class, sign up for a few private sessions before the term to get you accustomed to the equipment and language of Pilates.
