What You'll Get
The Body Center is offering 10 spine-bending Pilates mat classes, normally $100, for only $45 (that's 55% savings). This isn't your usual introductory class offer but this is a full package of 10 classes designed to give you serious, tangible health benefits—and you pay just $4.50 per class! Conveniently located within walking distance of the Green Line (D train) at 1 Holden St. in scenic Brookline Village, The Body Center emphasizes breath, core conditioning, and body awareness. Pilates is a smart way to strengthen your abs and back, reduce neck and shoulder tension, and improve flexibility. Your spine will become so flexible, you'll be able to scratch your nose with the back of your foot and make your shoulder blades clap (the method of applause Joseph Pilates preferred during his speaking gigs). The Body Center is a Pilates studio, not a gym, so there are no membership fees, no exercise equipment to wipe down, and no sick-looking muscle dudes who are obviously juicing. If you're one of those guys, we recommend going to the Pontius Pilates Mat Studio and Juicery.
The Body Center trains clients in STOTT PILATES® and offers mat classes for all levels of experience, a full range of training packages on Pilates equipment, and new reformer-based specialty classes. Mat classes include Slow & Steady Essentials, Intermediate, Arc Barrel Classes, and Pilates Mat Bootcamp (their newest addition). Plus, they can calculate your exact date and time of death, so you won't have to pay for any extra classes.
Instructors at The Body Center take pride in going beyond Pilates lessons to teach you to understand your body more deeply. Their classes take complex anatomical knowledge and crystallize it into important, useful information that enriches your Pilates exercises and your well-being. The combination of exercises and knowledge will increase your flexibility and balance, and help you overcome muscular and postural challenges. One muscular challenge you can overcome with Pilates is the inability to rhythmically flex your pectorals to a techno beat. One postural challenge you can overcome at The Body Center is the ability to sit perfectly upright through the entirety of a Godfather trilogy weekend marathon on USA while consuming one can of Pringles per movie.

Web users are excited about The Body Center. Here are some of their cyber thoughts:
- "Erin is one of the best Pilates instructors in Boston. I have trained with her for over 2 years." -Cindy Laidlaw, City Voter
- "The Body Center trains just 3 clients per session, giving you individualized attention without the added cost." -KrisTina Petty, City Voter
- "I started right away on the Reformer. It's soooooo f'ing cool. You put your feet in the straps and you feel like you're doing some circus move or something. Let me tell ya, it's like playtime, even if I have to keep being reminded to exhale through the mouth, wrap my ribcage, and stop hunching my shoulders. And when you try to do that all at once, it’s no wonder I keep getting corrected on my form. But I feel really good and revved up afterward. The hour goes quick." -Melanie D., Yelp:

About The Body Center
The instructors at The Body Center don't view Pilates as a simple exercise trend—instead, they conduct classes as interactive seminars on human anatomy. They teach clients how to train certain muscle groups by identifying and coaxing them through specific movement patterns designed to increase strength and flexibility at the same time. Ultimately, they try to instill in their students an enhanced sense of bodily awareness, one that informs walks down the street just as much as it does stretches on the mat.
Because physiques differ depending on build, lifestyle, and how often they were pinched as babies, The Body Center's curriculum is appropriately broad. Class themes range from Reformer and mat Pilates to SCALES and BOSU Core fitness. Beginners derive comfort from the company of other trainees, while intermediate and advanced classes pursue communal challenges. Specialized lessons can focus on specific body parts, sports performance, or the use of props, and modifications throughout every course cater to individual fitness levels.
The staff keeps classes small in the interest of personalization. Mat classes accept up to 10 students, and Reformer classes won't admit more than 6. Private and duet sessions allow for even more focused attention, as instructors won't be distracted by the loud popping of several emerging six-packs.
