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 $49, you get three group reformer classes at Joy of Movement Pilates and Gyrotonic Studio in Aptos Village (a $105 value).
Founded by Jennifer Balboni in 2006, Joy of Movement Pilates and Gyrotonic Studio strives to bring the body and mind into perfect harmony through supportive, integrated movement training. The group reformer class is a core-targeted class, taught entirely on a Pilates apparatus, which provides added resistance to muscles while reducing stress on joints and ligaments. The low student-to-teacher ratio of 3:1 ensures each student receives individual attention from the instructor, helping them achieve their fitness goal, whether it be increased flexibility, weight loss, or the posture of a ballet-dancing rake. The green-certified studio is tranquilly nestled beside the peaceful forests of Nisene Marks State Park, allowing chakras to align, and spirit animals to boastfully show you off to furry frenemies. Check out the online class schedule and make your reformer-class reservation.
