Reformer + Jumpboard Fusion- Intermediate levels and above

Like your regular reformer classes, Reformer+Jumpboard Fusion will challenge the whole body, elevate the heart rate and train coordination. Other benefits include burning more calories, while strengthening and lengthening your muscles. It is low-impact and will increase bone-density and increase endurance. You will do spurts of jumping followed with other exercises; it’s not jumping for the whole 55 minutes.

Reformer + Interval Fusion- Intermediate levels and above

Reformer+Interval Fusion uses the HIIT system, or High Intensity Interval Training, to boost your metabolism, burn more calories all day and get your heart pumping. This high-energy class will do intervals of your favorite exercises, i.e. 3 rounds of 30 second movements with a small break in between. This class will challenge your Pilates routine or add a new dimension to it. Every class is different and is designed to keep you on your toes and your body challenged. You will not reach a plateau in this class–you will notice that your endurance will increase, you will perform your daily tasks better and you will be invigorated with more energy.  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).
