For those with no reformer experience, 3 Intro to New Body Pilates classes required before joining. 

Intermediate Reformer Class

For the more experienced Pilates student. You will continue to learn moves on the reformer, advancing difficulty as appropriate at a moderate pace. You’ll continue to work the entire body, including small and large muscle groups, with a focus on proper form. 20+ reformer classes recommended before joining.

Jumpboard Cardio

Jumpboard Cardio will challenge the whole body, strengthen and lengthen your muscles, elevate the heart rate, and train coordination. Other benefits include getting cardio and strength training all in one hour, which equates to burning more calories throughout the day. It is low-impact and will increase bone-density and endurance. You will do spurts of cardio using the jumpboard followed with other strengthening exercises, for a super effective full-body workout. (Recommended for Intermediate students and above). 

HIIT Reformer

HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. HIIT has been shown to boost your metabolic rate for up to 48 hours after your workout, which means more fat burning when at rest. In our HIIT Reformer Class, we aim to bring you the Pilates Reformer exercises you love mixed with heart pounding, fat burning cardio. This class is a whole body workout that brings results! (Recommended for intermediate students and above).

Pre/Postnatal Reformer

A Pilates reformer routine that’s safe to do in every trimester. Pilates during pregnancy can not only help with stamina and balance, but help you have an easier labor too. We will help you learn how to modify based on trimester (which will be helpful to you when you attend our other reformer classes) and work to engage your deepest core muscles, pelvic floor, hips and spine and develop muscle strength that will help you recover faster post-pregnancy. For those who are post-pregnancy, we will walk you through dealing with diastasis recti (a condition where abdominal muscles separate) if applicable, and help you regain strength safely. Although reformer Pilates is one of the safest workouts you can do when you’re expecting, be sure to check with your doctor before you begin this or any workout program. 

Restorative Reformer

For the student in need of a little more TLC, this slower-paced, restorative beginner/intermediate-level class is rooted in Pilates fundamentals.  Students will work to restore alignment, flexibility, strength, balance and stability using the reformer and various props at a pace that meets their ability. For those with no reformer experience, 3+ Intro to New Body Pilates classes required before joining. 

Private Appointment

A private lesson catering to your specific needs. You get the entire studio to yourself where an experienced instructor will guide you through exercises on various forms of Pilates equipment. This is a good option if you are new to Pilates and/or have significant injuries. Private Lessons are very limited, by request, and offered at non-peak times only (weekdays mid-day, 11am-3pm only).
