I have been teaching private Pilates classes at my exclusive Beverly Hills Studio for over 25 years. I have recently added a fun group class called Dance-ilates that is an great alternative for people who cannot afford privates. I enjoy helping clients to get into the best shape of their lives!
At Pure Barre Beverly Hills, any student can build muscle tone in barre classes, but only a few can sign their name in ink on the studio’s banister—that’s a right reserved for members of The 100 Club, a group of regulars who have taken 100 classes at the spa-like fitness center. As dedicated in practice as they are discerning in taste, members of The 100 Club keep coming back for the heart-pumping soundtrack, as well as amenities such as complimentary alkaline water and free two-hour parking.
The actual sessions at Pure Barre Beverly Hills—which are held seven days a week—aim to burn fat and boost confidence by lifting seats off the ground and toning thighs with tiny isometric movements. Though the classes coddle joints by keeping bouncing and jumping to a minimum, each workout remains true to the teachings of franchise founder Carrie Rezabek Dorr, whose background and enthusiasm for dance continues to translate into exciting workouts for members of both The 100 Club and the nonexistent, yet potentially awesome, 1 Million Impassioned Grunts club.
Pilates Plus By Eden Sassoon's instructors lead group classes that augment the fundamental principles of Pilates with dynamic muscle workouts. The studio utilizes the SPX system, which adheres to Joseph Pilates' postural alignment and flexibility exercises as a foundation for improving muscular stamina, increasing cardio respiratory endurance, and accelerating metabolism. While helping students strengthen and tone bodies, specialized instructors infuse lessons with areas of their own expertise.
Dionne’s passion for dance began at just 2 years old. She spent years studying the art of ballet, tap, and jazz until one day she discovered a new challenge: pole dancing. She teaches her clients how to spin and slide down poles—moves that tone muscles, drop pounds, and boost confidence. Her background in dance also enables Dionne to teach jazz, hip-hop, ballet, tap, and salsa, along with aerial moves using silks, hoops, and gym ropes.
Students at Align Beverly Hills Pilates have a lot more than mats at their disposal to get the most of their Pilates workouts. The center's private, semi-private, and group classes might incorporate reformer machines to help students strengthen their cores, or they might rely on the specialty machines of the Gyrotonic Method to increase flexibility and range of motion.
Pilates Plus bolsters bodies using an intense combination of weight training and Pilates and the pressure-eliminating perks of the SPX ProFormer machine. Tapping into the traditional Pilates focus of proper alignment, concentrated breath, and precision, the Pilates Plus technique boosts endurance and revs up metabolism by aggressively working muscles to fatigue and ignoring their demands for squeeze cheese. Small group sizes and motivating exercise experts help to keep participants excited as they slash and burn excess body mass, and the reformer machine helps to alleviate stress on joints and the spine.
