We will teach you basic Pilates moves on the reformer, how to safely modify, what weights are appropriate for what exercise, and will build upon these skills. 3 Intro to New Body Pilates Classes (5 maximum) are required before joining a Beginner/Intermediate Reformer Class.

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 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).
Combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training, barre (pronounced bar) is a hybrid workout class that spikes the heart rate at different intervals to scorch calories. The barre is used as a balance aid while doing isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with small range-of-motion movements set to the beat of the music.
What sets our class apart from other barre studios is that we use the reformer throughout the class– your favorite reformer moves are strategically added to class to increase challenge and assist in stretching. We incorporate light hand weights, as well as the ball and mats for targeted core work. You can expect sculpted arms, flat abs, a lifted seat and elongated thighs, as well as improved posture and body alignment. Students are continually challenged with endless variations of exercises!
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.
