We have various sessions types that will have you moving more and getting stronger. We will guide you towards the sessions that are the best fit for you, your goals and your schedule.
We do recommend at least 3 sessions per week to really feel the benefits and see the changes that you are looking working towards.
Using the aerial hammocks for support and challenge provides a fun twist on all the Pilates principles and blended with yoga and strength for a unique workout. This is a strength focused session that is easily adjustable to most levels. Don't let using the silks scare you! The fabric is super supportive and actually can make a lot of the strength moves more doable.
No previous experience with aerial yoga is required, as we will take time to explain the setup, positioning and usage of the hammocks. You'll be introduced to some of the different fundamental wraps and positions, and then use those beginner techniques as we move through an all-levels flow that emphasizes deep stretching. Inversions will be offered in this class but are never mandatory. Listen to your body, try something new and have fun as we experiment and play together.
physical balance gives us the power to keep doing the things we like to do. In this class we will challenge and develop your balance and ability to control movements, focusing on building more symmetry left and right, and front and back. We keep mixing up the challenges to keep your body and mind engaged, sometimes using no equipment, sometimes adding weights or unstable surfaces. Everything is adjustable to challenge you where you are at.
Life doesn't move in a nice neat straight line so building strength in every direction for every situation is vital. We start to maximize your mobility through fluid movements and various stretches and myofascial release techniques. Using various equipment and props, we'll challenge your muscles in a variety of positions and situations. Bring on your strongest you!

No matter what direction we go, you will leave feeling stronger, more stretched, relaxed and grounded.
Stress seems unavoidable in our busy modern lives. It is essential that we find ways to take care of ourselves and limit the very real physical and emotional impact of stress. In this bootcamp style class, be prepared to sweat as you let off the stress while also getting stronger – physically and mentally – for the rest of your day and beyond. Combining awesome customizable strength training with never boring cardio bursts, this class gets it all in!
There are a lot of ways to blow off steam and hitting something is definitely one of them! This class will be boxing skills based (not to be used for self-defense) that will result in a drenched-in-sweat workout.

Pilates with a cardio interval twist - lengthen muscles, strengthen your powerhouse core, build more muscle tone, boost your metabolism, low impact movements...what more could you ask for? We will be using the pilates equipment but suggest you bring sneakers, just in case. The best way we can explain this session is that it is pilates with a little oomph!
Mat Pilates proves that you don't need any fancy equipment to get an incredible workout. Your body is your resistance and your support. TRX suspension straps were designed to make your body your workout machine, and it succeeds!!! This session will take the two and put them together. Simple equipment, simple moves...killer workout.
Anything Pilates is an option in this class - reformer, tower, mat, props, TRX!
Reformer is a classic staple in Pilates practice. Truly unique, it allows us to work our bodies in a way that can't be replicated with other gym equipment. It's not about making it harder (although we certainly can do that!) It is about getting you into the best possible position, about training the smaller muscles and not just the big muscles, about maximizing how you move so you move better! We blend classical and contemporary modes of Pilates to keep it fresh and interesting and effective!
Pilates is about focusing and controlling your movements - after all, it was originally called "Contrology." These sessions are designed to take you back to the essential fundamentals of our movements and the particulars of what's unique about Pilates. Perfect for the beginner. Remember, that basic does not necessarily mean easy. This will be an all level session but will be at a more deliberate pace with opportunities to ask question and work various modifications.
To know Tower is to love this piece of equipment. Using the vertical tower and springs for resistance (or for support) this machine opens up your Pilates practice to an expanded range of exercises and allows us to incorporate more opportunities for building strength, symmetry and improving flexibility.
