The Experience

Restore physical vitality. Invigorate your mind. Elevate your spirit.

New to Classical Pilates? Our Beginner Series is designed specifically for you. Over the course of eight weeks, you will be taught the fundamentals of Classical Pilates to lay the foundations for a deeply rewarding and transformative practice.

 

Set in an intimate and encouraging space, your instructor will give you personalized and hands-on guidance as they mentor you through the movements and equipment associated with a Classical Pilates practice; including, but not limited to, the reformer, tower, chair and mat.
