Pilates 1901's instructors adhere to the Stott Pilates method, helping students strengthen their cores and burn calories with mat, Reformer, and cardio equipment sessions. The studio’s schedule of classes includes Mat Express sessions, where students of all levels learn to support their body weight during a 29-minute sequence of floor exercises, which uses smooth, controlled motions to tone muscle groups all over the body. Cardio Kettlebell classes incorporate small hand weights into an invigorating exercise routine that burns more calories than postdinner fire-eating routines.
The Pilates On Ramp sessions prepare students for continued practice by helping to develop proper Reformer technique in a small group setting. After learning how to safely and effectively use the Pilates Reformer's network of pulleys and spring resistance to strengthen the body's core muscles, attendees can attend additional group equipment classes and give a lecture on the mechanics of the slinky.
Each instructor at Pilates 1901 has extensive training in the Stott method, combining a contemporary understanding of physiology with traditional Pilates techniques to create a safe and accessible regimen of silhouette-firming exercises. Instructors gather small group equipment classes as well as larger mat, cardio, ball and Zumba classes. Pilates 1901 has five fully equipped studios with 16 reformers, 6 chairs, 2 cadillacs and a 1,500 square foot group exercise room. Pilates 1901 offers 50 varied classes weekly.
