Our Introductory Package is a great way to acquaint yourself with Pilates or Gyrotonic®. The package includes six private sessions or five private sessions and three group classes — tower, mat or CARDIOLATES. In just a few short sessions, you will look and feel better. From improving your golf or tennis swing to more enjoyably playing with your child or grandchild, the movements and principles that you learn in these sessions can be incorporated into your daily routine.
In a Private session, you will be instructed on a variety of equipment true to the original design of the method’s creator. Your personal instructor will design a routine to meet your particular level of coordination, strength, and goals. This allows you to work at your own pace while learning the principles, movement, and language of Pilates or GYROTONIC®. Your instructor will make adjustments in your form, alignment, and quality of movement that will make a difference in your posture, breathing, strength, and daily movement. Both methods require focus and visualization, so you may find that your session provides an escape from your ordinary routine and concerns.
Private sessions are especially recommended for beginners, those with injuries, or limited experience with movement or exercise.
A semi-private session is two individuals working with one instructor. In your session you will use a variety of Pilates equipment and mat work is almost always included. Duets work very well for friends or spouses who wish to workout together.
Tower Mat Class
Tower mat class is up to three participants to one instructor. Tower classes are the best of both worlds utilizing the tower, or wall unit, with low impact springs and resistance training in conjunction with traditional mat work. This flowing workout targets the whole body.
CARDIOLATES® combines the alignment principles of Pilates with the cardiovascular benefits of rebounding. Rebounding, performed on a mini-trampoline, is a workout that improves cardiovascular health in the long term while burning calories at the rate akin to jogging. The trampoline offers a cushioned surface that makes the impact less jarring also making it easier on the joints than other traditional cardio workouts such as running. Other benefits include improved balance, coordination, agility and spatial awareness. Did we also mention this workout is just plain FUN!
Group class of three participants to one instructor.
Mat Class is a group session with up to six individuals. Mat sessions use a series of floor exercises that combine the philosophy of Pilates apparatus work without extensive use of equipment. The mat work is specifically designed to challenge the abdominal, hip, and shoulder muscles as you use your own body (with infrequent use of resistance circles or light weights) to create resistance. Mat work can be learned so that you can work on your own at home, using the Pilates principles that you learned in our studio.
