Semi Private Pilates Session
Bring your own friends or companions is preferred but but we can pair you with someone if needed. These sessions are limited to 3 – 4 people, so you receive highly personalized and individual attention from the instructor.

The Authentic Pilates Approach
Using all of the core principles below for each exercise that is performed is an ultimate Pilates approach that is proven to create results!
Physically bringing the focus to the center of the body, the powerhouse area between the lower ribs and pelvic floor.
Focusing on the movement before any muscle activation occurs. This creates an ultimate mind-body connection, then using the mind to activate muscles that support the movement creating a deeper and more effective result or benefit.
Every Pilates exercise is done with complete control from the inside out. This allows joints, weaknesses, and injured areas to rest while stabilizing the total body.
Through precision, muscle response is strengthened and more efficient movement is created. This translates into increased endurance and stamina in everyday activities. Precision leads to proper form, which leads to injury prevention.
Breath is important for a total mind-body connection. Breathing is one of the most important parts of exercising, thinking, or even simply relaxing. The deeper the breath, the healthier the mind and body can function. Each exercise in Pilates is coordinated with a breathing style to train the body to move deeper with a flowing breath.
Pilates aims for elegant efficiency of movement in your workout, creating flow. Once precision has been achieved, the exercises are intended to flow within and into each other in order to build strength, increase stamina, and promote wellness.
