Without flexibility, dancers would be exiled to the land of misfit performers, a punishing land where masons pave sidewalks with superglue and pennies. Tone and strengthen minus the dip in confidence with today's Groupon to Concentric Studio. Choose between the following options:
- For $60, you get four semiprivate Pilates classes (a $130 value).
- For $80, you get 10 group Pilates classes (a $180 value).
As a movement and body-conditioning studio, Concentric and its veteran staff aid students in developing balance, coordination, flexibility, muscle tone, and posture. Aside from lending verbal and visual guidance, Concentric instructor Octavio Galindo, a 15-year Pilates veteran, perpetually promotes his floorbound innovation, the Orbit, which enables omnidirectional movement heightened by inherent, gravitational resistance. In the semiprivate session, two to six aspiring spandex models can utilize the studio's specialized Pilates equipment, including Galindo's Orbit. In group classes, students separate themselves from the earth's mighty pull with a thin floor mat, wielding small, leverage-oriented props to sculpt wood-block bodies into freshly lathed banisters.
Concentric's studio is a colorful playground for grown-up Pilates pals, with weights, blocks, mats, modern equipment, and a vibrant, body-coddling exercise-ball pit. A flood of natural light pours in from the front windows, spilling over lemongrass-tinted walls and dimly spotted sconces, which glowingly flatter the form during evening gatherings and invisible, daytime shadow-puppet shows.
