Pilates builds strength, flexibility and lean muscle tone with an emphasis on lengthening the body and aligning the spine. The Pilates Reformer is an exercise machine used to incorporate the Pilates exercise technique for a challenging and intense workout. Springs, leverage and body weight are used as resistance while performing movements targeting specific muscle groups. Using springs for resistance, there is no impact on joints making reformer pilates perfect for those returning from injury, or older bodies with aches and pains.
Focus on the essentials to your Pilates practice. Work on technique and the basics before moving onto faster paced classes. Perfect for beginners, those working with injuries and those needing to come back to the basics to gain mobility.
Reformer exercises develop core strength and balance the muscles around the joints, improving the way your body moves, looks and feels. While still focusing on some of the basics, this class moves at a faster pace than the foundation course and incorporates more challenging movements to keep you progressing. *Beginner class required before attending.
*East Nashville Location Only.
Pilates Mat Classes are the floor work version of the Pilates method. These classes take place in a group setting using your body weight as the primary source of resistance.
Focus is placed on precise movements originating from the center or core of your body. Working from the deepest layers of muscles, which stabilize and support your spine and pelvis, resulting in a strong, flexible spine with ideal posture and alignment. Classes emphasize the foundational principals of Pilates while offering modifications and variations to suit each student’s individual needs.
