Small Group Training Class Descriptions
Pilates Level 1:
Enjoy a well-rounded workout on a variety of Pilates equipment including Reformer, mat, and chair. At this level we will introduce all of the beginner level exercises. And, we’ll explore how to use the breath to stabilize and mobilize the body, gaining much greater control and power. You can expect to safely challenge your body using all planes of motion in all relationships to gravity (i.e. flexion, extension, lateral rotation and lateral flexion). Additionally, clients will be introduced to the Pilates vocabulary and the names of each exercise. It’s important to become more familiar with communicating the principles of alignment, abdominal engagement, mobilization of spine, hips and pelvis. This class is recommended for those who have some Pilates experience. And, for those who want to continue to work at a moderate pace.
Pilates Level 2:
In level 2, clients will continue to practice the full beginner repertoire of exercises. At this level, the intermediate principles and exercises will be layered into the workout. This includes more weight bearing on arms, more complex movements, and larger ranges of motion with stability and balance challenges. This class is taught at a pace that will encourage flow and control while building endurance and strength. We’ll work on mixed equipment in this class including the Reformer, mat, and chair. This class is recommended for clients who have achieved competence with the beginner level exercises. Clients should be able to do the level 1 exercises fairly easily, with good form, and without struggle or a lot of explanation.
We now have four Gyrotonic Towers in the studio and are excited to start offer small group training on this very popular piece of Gyrotonic equipment. Gyrotonic training is a three-dimensional movement system based on the principles of yoga, dance, tai chi, and swimming. Clients will focus on stretching and strengthening muscles while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening the connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. These exercises are coordinated with corresponding breathing patterns, enhancing aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation, balance, detoxification, increased oxygenation and circulation, lymphatic movement, and cranial sacral stimulation. Specific to this class, the Pulley Tower will guide the body through natural spiraling movement. Its pulley based design provides assistance in tractioning the spine and joints. Whatever your conditioning goal, Gyrotonic training is an efficient, effective, and safe way to increase your flexibility, develop your core, and release tension.
Pilates Oov Six-Week Series:
The Oov is a dynamic piece of equipment that can help you intuitively tune into your body. Don’t be fooled by how comfy it looks and feels—this oddly shaped tool packs a workout punch. The Oov was created to support all three curves of the spine simultaneously while engaging and isolating specific muscle groups to elongate the spine and strengthen the body. This class will incorporate Pilates exercises using the Oov to help you find balance, strength and control like you’ve never experienced.
Intermediate Reformer (Osteoporosis Safe) Six-Week Series:
This level 2 Pilates Reformer class is designed for clients with osteoporosis or osteopenia looking to challenge themselves, build strength and endurance, and do so in an osteoporosis-safe way. In level 2, clients will continue to practice the full beginner repertoire of exercises. Intermediate principles and exercises will be layered into the workout. This includes more weight bearing on arms, more complex movements, and larger ranges of motion with stability and balance challenges. This class is taught at a pace that will encourage flow and control while building endurance and strength. This class is recommended for clients who have achieved competence with the beginner level exercises and can do most of them fairly easily, with good form, and without struggle or a lot of explanation.
Intro to GYROTONIC® Tower Six-Week Series:
Meet Elaine on the Gyrotonic Tower for this special series of classes. This class is for those who are new to the Gyrotonic System or who would like a refresh of the Program 1 material. In this class, we will incorporate movement from the Gyrokinesis Essentials classes and apply those concepts to the programming on the Gyrotonic Tower. You can look forward to a balanced, whole body movement experience that will leave you feeling strong and energized.
