BOSU training blends cardio moves core-stabilization exercises performed on the BOSU, a hemisphere-shaped inflatable. The course helps condition muscles and improve posture. Stretch classes, including Stretch Your Spine and Rigorous Stretch, relieve tension in the spine and other areas with flowing moves and deep stretches, often performed while lying full-length atop a foam roller. For specific times, see the class schedule.
Private Pilates reformer sessions are a great way for new students to familiarize themselves with the equipment, which uses a sliding carriage and tension springs to simultaneously stretch and strengthen muscles. Afterwards, students will be prepared to enter group reformer classes. The sessions can also help more advanced students master their moves.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Jen McWalters Studio
When a car accident broke Jen McWalter’s back, she didn’t know it. She only discovered it years later, when she had a sudden back spasm during a dance class. Healing such an old injury was challenging, but with a Pilates-infused physical-therapy routine, Jen’s spine gradually returned to working order.
Since then, Jen has not just practiced Pilates—she also earned her Gold Certification from the Pilates Method Alliance, and founded her own 3,000-square-foot Pilate studio. For the past decade, she and her team have led equipment and mat sessions there, teaching techniques from basic breath work to the one-armed planks needed to work out while tweeting a tribute to Joseph Pilates.
