FREE INTRODUCTORY LESSON TO THE PILATES REFORMER
If it is your first time to learn Pilates on the Reformer, please call us to schedule a free 50 minute introductory lesson. During this time, we will introduce you to the Reformer and teach you the guiding principles of Pilates which include centering, concentration, control, precision, breathing and flow of movement.
The Pilates reformer is the most versatility piece of Pilates equipment which uses springs and straps that create resistance from the participant's body weight. Well over 100 different exercises can be performed with the Reformer. This form of exercise requires that the mind is wholly engaged along with the body. Every exercise is performed with attention to the breath, form and efficient maneuvering patterns. Classes are designed to build core strength, create uniform muscle strength and flexibility and provide a full body work out. Whatever the fitness level, the result is a body that works better, plays better and feels better. Classes are limited to 5 clients and are taught by Balanced Body University trained Pilates instructors who are also Registered Nurses.
Pregnant Clents: you may join a regular group class during the first trimester. During the second trimester you need the instructors approval and sign up 24 hrs in advance. Third trimester requires private lessons for the safety of you and your baby.
HATHA VINYASA YOGA
The word Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement.” In this yoga practice, the teacher instructs the students how to incorporate the breath pattern into the movement sequence. Each movement is done on an inhalation or an exhalation. Class sizes are limited to 10 students so that individual attention is given to each student as practicing correct alignment is essential to a healthy yoga practice.
If you are interested in taking your Pilates or Yoga practice to the next level, you may be interested in taking a private lesson. Each session is custom tailored to your needs, goals and concerns. You may schedule a solo, duet or trio lesson. If you have an injury or chronic condition, this is the best way to make sure you receive proper attention and care.
