There are many effective approaches to the Pilates method; one way is to stay closest to the way it was taught by Joseph Pilates himself.
A vital element of more classical pilates is the sequencing of each move, or what we will call The Order. It's the idea that every pilates workout should flow in a specific order so that each move prepares the body for the next.
Every class will be predictable and the same, so that we can begin to anticipate, memorize and perfect each move.
We will be switching positions more frequently so that each class can incorporate all the planes of motion...flexion, extension, lateral flexion (side bending) and rotation.
We will begin to take ownership of the pilates repertoire.
We will be practicing mind-body coordination.
We will breath!
We will work from our core.
We will move with thoughtfulness and integrity.
YOGA-BARRE STUDIO CLASSES
The Yoga-Barre Studio offers challenging yet safe total body workouts. Yoga, Ballet and of course Pilates create our classes.
YOGA increases overall well-being by enhancing alertness and enthusiasm, decreasing anxiety, and increasing your ability to cope. It strengthens muscles and builds endurance, improves flexibility and balance, increases your energy, boosts your immune system, and decreases body aches.
BARRE is fun, energetic, and will help sculpt your body and tackle those hard to tone areas.
PILATES builds strength and flexibility, which will sculpt your body into a longer, leaner, stronger version of yourself.
