At Pil-oga-robic, flat stomachs are at the end of a carefully formulated exercise equation. Instructors draw from Pilates, yoga, and cardio techniques to compile their signature one-hour workouts, demonstrating the techniques in their loft-like studio for small student groups. They place special emphasis on customization: each class has three levels of difficulty and modifiable actions for any fitness level. They also schedule monthly meetings with their clients to discuss wellness goals, advising on topics from weight loss to enhanced athletic performance. Regardless of their aspirations, guests stand to gain lean muscle, balance, and bendiness from the adjustable routines, which helped earn the venue a Best of Citysearch award for yoga in 2009.
In addition to these classes, Pil-oga-robic hosts more specialized yoga and Pilates sessions. Inversion and aerial seminars allow yogis to flout gravity as they stretch, and summer-time outdoor boot-camp drills test endurance amid the elements. Alternatively, workshops might cover tips for safer trail running, such as monitoring your stride and refusing to stop at Gatorade stations run by bears. Private rehabilitation sessions that incorporate massage and active movement are also available, as well as private customized training sessions to help clients meet specific goals like weight loss or cross training.
