The mat is the foundation of Pilates, or what Joseph Pilates originally called Contrology. The mat work was developed first as a sequence of exercises done in a precise order maintaining proper alignment on a mat. One begins standing with correct posture then moves into a horizontal position allowing the muscles and joints to open without gravity. The flow of the class is maintained with seamless transitions connecting breath and movement. The exercises develop the deepest and most intrinsic muscles of the body, the “core” muscles of the abdominals, pelvis, hips, and shoulders. As a result, the body becomes stronger from the inside out. The posture is improved, allowing one to move and stretch with ease and fluidity.
We offer private or semi- private Pilates sessions which incorporate the Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, and barrels.
Group Reformer Classes
Classes are held using the Universal Reformer, which allow the familiar mat exercises to be performed with the tension of springs to challenge your strength even more. Familiarity with the mat work is absolutely necessary to begin a class.
