This workshop is for the intermediate student that wants to dive deeper into the Pilates practice. We will break down the advanced repertoire giving you a strong foundation to work from. Be ready to work hard both physically and mentally, as this class will work the entire mind and body.
The class will be highly influenced from the BASI method, as Dan has just returned from a weekend workshop with Rael. Exercises like “twist, “swan dive”, “jack knife”, “control balance” and “boomerang” will all be included.
Pre-approval will be necessary to join this workshop.

Liberate Your Shoulders & Ease Your Neck
with Angelina Vasile
Sunday May 5th
The tightness of the neck and shoulders makes it hard to breathe, dulls sensation in all other parts of the body, and thereby dampens our ability to feel pleasure.
This is THE workshop to learn how to unravel the years, perhaps decades, of tension that have accumulated in your upper body, liberating you to feel more ease and joy. Using functional movement to mobilize, deep breathing to activate feeling, Pilates for alignment and the magic of Forrest yoga’s “release your neck” technique to dissolve tension, you will learn to free up your tight spots and come alive in your whole body.
* The room will be gently heated to generate a cleansing sweat!
With warm weather around the corner the studio is busier than ever! We’d like to take this time to implement a new “barefoot only” policy for our mat room. This will help you work on balance and build strength in the smaller muscles of the foot and lower leg, as well as help keep our floors clean for all.
If you have any questions regarding this new policy, please contact us at email@example.com

End your weekend feeling balanced, toned and stretched with our newest Sunday reformer class. The Reformer’s adjustable springs allow for progressive resistance, which helps to lengthen and strengthen the muscles rather than building bulk. The result? A uniformly developed body with strong back and abdominal muscles.
Mike will also be teaching TRX for beginners Thursday nights at 7:30pm. Find out more about TRX here.
Tuesdays at 6am with Angy!

Looking to build speed and power? Need to work through knee and ankle issues?
The benefits of our Cardio Jumpboard class are wide-ranging and amazing! You’ll feel the burn in both your arms and legs, develop power and speed, improve overall coordination and elevate your heart rate more than any other Pilates Class. It will expand your Pilates practice by challenging you in different positions: lying on your back and side, kneeling facing the front, back and side, and many more physique toning movements.
Plus, it’s easy and so much fun!
Our 60 minute Cardio Reformer Jumpboard class is the perfect way to incorporate cardio work into your Pilates routine—and the best way to start your day. The jumpboard fastens to the end of the reformer adding a cardio component to a reformer class while seriously burning calories. This creatively choreographed workout is easy, fun and effective—plus, the impact on your knees and hip joints is minimal due to the spring resistance used with reformer and the principles of Pilates. It’s a great low impact alternative for a cardio workout while strengthening and stabilizing too!
Drop your weights and experience the power of lifting your own body! In this workshop you will not only challenge your core strength, you will gain a fun and creative goal that can be practiced almost anywhere.
