Small Group Classes

Our group classes are limited to small groups ensuring you receive attention, individual correction and feedback from your instructor. 

Private Instruction

Privates are one-on one sessions under the watchful eye of our skilled instructor. This allows the student to learn the exact way to do each exercise for maximum benefit. Students will often choose privates because they are new to the practice of Pilates, they are recovering from an injury or they wish to deepen their practice. If you prefer to take class individually you may wish to continue in private sessions.

Duets & Semi Privates

Duets & Semi-privates are similar to privates with individualized attention and instruction but you share the instructor with one or two other people. This is  an economical way to continue your Pilates practice and still receive a lot of personal feedback.

If you wish to start a group class at a time that is convenient for you, we need 3 people, please inquire.

Rehabilitative exercise is an important part of returning to activities of daily living after cancer treatment. Newer research has shown that exercise is not only safe and possible after cancer, but also immediacy after diagnosis and during treatments. Over 80 studies have shown that the effects of exercise on patients demonstrate that exercise safe and also leads to significant improvements in day-to-day functioning, intensity and tolerance of symptoms, fitness, and overall health-related quality of life.

The life-force of the Pink Ribbon Program is to ensure that every woman has the ability to regain a sense of wellbeing that had been lost from diagnosis through surgery and into recovery. This can be achieved, in part, through an exercise therapy program designed specifically for the needs and challenges facing the growing number of breast cancer survivors. Rehabilitation is a key component often missing in the treatment of breast cancer. The Pink Ribbon Program has been created to enhance recovery for breast cancer patients. The program helps stretch and strengthens shoulder, chest, and back allowing the patient to improve range of motion and strength to those areas most affected by breast cancer surgery, treatment and reconstruction.
