In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core until it's naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon: for $30, you get three drop-in Pilates classes (a $60 value) at In Balance Pilates in Kanata.
At In Balance Pilates, Stott-certified instructor Lisa Khera leads intimate classes for Pilates practitioners of all levels looking to improve posture, build core strength, develop lean muscle, and enhance overall health and wellbeing. Lisa teaches the Stott Pilates method, a variation on the original that utilizes contemporary ideas about spinal rehabilitation, relaxed social mores, and athletic enhancement to cater to many different body types and abilities.
In Balance Pilates offers a schedule of beginner, intermediate, and advanced courses, and keeps class sizes to a maximum of eight students so Lisa can give her charges close attention and ensure safety as she monitors posture, breathing, muscular recruitment, and gravity's defeat. The exercises take place on mats and frequently incorporate Stott Pilates equipment, such as foam tubes and inflated balls in grapefruit and tire sizes.
