Mat Class Descriptions

Intro to Pilates Foundations Class:  This class is for those with no experience with Pilates. A foundation of correct movement is built with awareness brought to on breathing, alignment and balanced muscle development. This class will lay the foundation to continue in ongoing classes in the schedule.

Beginner Pilates Mat Class:  This class covers classical and contemporary Pilates repertoire to target the “core” as well as the whole body. A foundation of a warm up and beginner level Pilates mat exercises will stretch and strengthen the body while creating a good foundation for movement and posture to carry you through life. This class is slower paced and good for those recovering from an injury, surgery, mothers who recently gave birth, or those who want to return to the basics.

Pilates Mat Class (Level 1 & 2):  This mat class covers both the classical Pilates mat repertoire along with new and innovative stretch and strengthening exercises to target the “core” and the whole body. Small apparatus (fitness circles, hand weights, foam rollers, therabands, and balls) are used in this class to help increase resistance, strength, and flexibility. A strong foundation of correct movement is built when doing the exercises. This class is available to those who have learned the beginner level exercises and to those at an intermediate level. This class will leave you feeling strong and stretched, grounded and integrated.

Pilates and ELDOA’s for Spinal Rejuvenation:  This class includes Pilates mat exercises (sometimes using small apparatus and/or balls for release work), and ELDOA’s (specific stretches for each and every segment of the spine to lengthen and create space in the spine). This class is geared toward improving strength, creating space in the spine, and improving overall spinal health. The results of the ELDOAs are profound and some of the many benefits include: reduced vertebral compression; healing for bulging discs; increased muscle tone and awareness; improved circulation & posture, and spinal disc rehydration. ELDOAs also positively affect spinal conditions such as scoliosis and ankylosing spondylitis (among many), reduce overall pain, and rejuvenate the spine. Leave class feeling stronger, open, and taller.

Pilates (Level 1 & 2) & ELDOA (+ Everything But The Kitchen Sink!):  This class combines Pilates, ELDOA, Myofascial Stretching, MELT Method, Franklin Balls, and Franklin Band sequences for whole-body workouts. This class offers mini self-treatments for body care in addition to strengthening, stretching, and opening up the whole body. Leave this class feeling open, taller, longer, stronger, relaxed, worked out, and all with some TLC!

Gentle Hatha Yoga Infused With Pilates:  Gentle Hatha-based yoga class that focuses on the breath guiding each person through relaxation pose (savasana), gentle stretches (asanas), standing poses and flows. Pilates core & stability exercises along with some other modalities (Franklin Method, MELT Method, and ELDOA), are used to assist in supporting and providing strength and release for yoga poses.

At different times, any of the group mat classes may have other modalities infused into the class.  These include MELT Method treatments for the hands and feet, ELDOA’s, Myofascial stretching, and Franklin Method ball rolling to release fascial and band work for whole body workouts.
