Body Balance Institute’s Pilates classes deliver a low-impact, high-intensity workout designed to sculpt shapelier abs and refine the body’s core strength. During each 45-minute class, certified instructors—some with more than 10 years of experience—hold students’ hands along the pathway to increased pliability, imbuing them with the knowledge of core Pilates principles such as control, breath, fluidity, and stabilization. Pilates Barre workouts incorporate the studio’s stationary ballet barre into a series of exercises that promote strength and balance and teach students to turn any skyscraper railing into a fully fledged fitness tool, and Pilates Equipment classes draw on multi-purpose exercise equipment such as the Pilates chair and orbit to streamline workouts and challenge athletes of all types.
Instructors welcome students of all skill levels into a bright, sunlit studio with warm tones that lull hips, thighs, and arms into complacency before sending them through a gauntlet of fat-burning stretches. The studio hosts Pilates Barre and Pilates Equipment workouts as often as six days a week and otherwise fills its schedule with such corpus-boosting classes as yoga and beginners levitation.
