Class/Session Descriptions

Every studio has different class types with different names, and lets face it, that can get confusing! To help alleviate that, we have provided in depth descriptions of each of our classes to make it easier for you to decide which one is best for you! Please contact us if you still have questions, would like help picking a class, or if you would like to know available class times for a specific class. (Rossiter is done in private session format only.)

Pilates Class Clarification:

Reformer:  Our studio uses Allegro and Studio Reformers and is limited to 5 participants for quality instruction. Reformers provide resistance through the use of varying spring strengths and the practitioner’s own body weight. Exercises can be performed lying down, sitting, prone, kneeling and standing depending on the needs of individuals and level of ability in each particular class. Pilates “props” and floor work may be added in as well.


Mat:  Movements and exercises performed on a floor mat (thicker than a yoga mat). This is a nice way to experience the Pilates Principles and learn the exercises without also having to get used to new equipment. Most clients enjoy starting with the Mat Essentials classes to ensure they have the proper foundation for all the Pilates repertoire/equipment before joining Reformer classes. A bonus is these exercises can be easily practiced at home. Many then come back to classical mat work or reformer as they are ready for more challenging work.

Reformer 1 

This class focuses on bringing the Movement Essentials into the Reformer work. Clients are guided through the basic exercises in all spatial arrangements as appropriate for each class. 


Emphasis is on proper breathing and body mechanics, a solid foundation for a functional core and scapular stabilization. As always, this class is a wonderful blend of strengthening and stretching. Predominately closed-chain exercises.

Reformer 1/2 

Appropriate class for those bridging between Reformer 1 and 2. This client is proficient in Movement Essentials and very familiar with Reformer 1 repertoire, but is not yet holding the new movement patterns consistently enough for Reformer 2. 

Reformer 2

A class for those who consistently display proficiency in the Reformer 1 repertoire and a command of Movement Essentials. More challenging and complex exercises/variations are introduced. An ability to be able to maintain core control throughout an exercise and on an inhale is necessary. More standing and quadruped work, more long lever exercises, and more rotation are included.

Reformer 2/3     

A class for those ready for more challenging exercises, but needing consideration for continuing compensatory patterns. Endurance and breath control is a must at this level.

Movement Essentials Mat Plus*

A mat class to explore the foundational principles of movement. Whether a self proclaimed clutz or a seasoned athlete working through the newest level of compensatory patterning, this is where one can learn how to break down faulty movement patterns and recreate more efficient, biomechanically sound ones. 

This knowledge will serve you in all that you do and transfer into your daily life. A huge bonus: These exercises can easily be done at home or when you travel to augment your fitness program. Workout on a deep level utilizing safe movements.

Mat Work

A class drawing from the Movement Essentials to perform the more challenging classic Pilates Mat exercises. A very intensive set of movements requiring fluency in the Essentials. Suitable for the injury-free practitioner.

Privates/Duets

These sessions are custom designed and lead by our skilled instructors to focus on your personal goals as well as our assessment of your needs for the most optimum functioning you can achieve. 


Exercises will be done drawing on all available equipment and incorporate all methodologies the instructor is trained in: including leading edge approaches with the OOV, Core Align, suspension, Rossiter, Z-Health and more. 


You can learn at your own pace, without distraction and receive instant feedback and correction. They may be done solely or in conjunction with group classes. Without a doubt, a superb way to really see results. BYOB-Bring Your Own Buddy for duets!

Rossiter

The Rossiter System is a method for targeted relief and prevention of structural pain. It is a unique and effective approach that typically provides fast pain relief and profound anatomical change. Rossiter initiates change by addressing the Myofascial System layers. It actively engages the client in a series of techniques for resolving restriction of movement at its source – the connective tissue. 


It is done with clothes on and predominantly on a floor mat. 


A Rossiter session must be paid for as a private either with the single or punch card options and can also be done in half hour segments.

A yoga class that incorporates breath practices, Z-Health approaches: joint mobilizations, brain balancing, eye exercises and the traditional Hatha flow of standing, seated and floor postures. A wonderful mid-day class.

*Plus by a class title means there are elements of Z-Health incorporated into the class.


OOV Group Class

The OOV is an innovative new tool and approach that we use to perform movements that will challenge and rejuvenate the fascia, musculoskeletal system, stability/mobility strategies and help balance the nervous system and brain inputs. This revolutionary tool must be experienced to be understood. It is amazing for people of any fitness level and can be used by the elite athlete or the rehab client to further movement goals and improve overall function.

Makes an excellent active recovery workout.
