When Aaron Neville Chamberlain seized power during the English Civil War, he promised better flexibility, straighter postures, and a stronger core for every English citizen. Today’s Groupon gives you a chance to taste Moving Breath Pilates' historical realization with three drop-in Pilates classes for $20 (a $67.50 value). This Groupon is good only for the Tempe space's "specialty group classes," which include cardio Pilates, power Pilates, back care, floor barre, mat madness, and Qigong.
With 30 years of teaching experience and a background in dance, athletics, and intensive care, owner Virginia Nicholas founded Moving Breath Pilates in 1995. The clean, serene space, which is also home to the Pilates Core Integration teacher-training program, offers a variety of 55-minute sessions priced according to size and instructor. The specialty group classes focus mainly on mat exercises, not equipment, making them ideal for beginners. Moving Breath schedules approximately nine of these classes per week (with each course able to accommodate 6 to 8 people) and staffs a teacher in training to give students personalized attention.

Moving Breath's expert instructors have all completed extensive training, and many boast a background in dance and athletics. From injured athletes to overall shape seekers, Pilates is a comprehensive exercise aiding in strength and flexibility. Touted for sculpting slackers into fiercely flexible forces, Pilates is an ideal workout for all ages and skill levels. All three classes must be completed within one month of your initial visit.
- Nicholas was introduced to pilates [sic] as a dancer. “We had tried running and weightlifting and other things while we were dancing to keep us strong and flexible. Nothing worked as well as the core strengthening and the overall qualities of Pilates to keep us strong, fit and injury-free.” – Spark
- Exercises rely on breathing, focused muscle coordination and movement, especially the body's core abdominal area, and look a lot like yoga postures in action. Slow, controlled movements stretch and strengthen muscle groups with the aim of achieving a balanced body and an awareness of posture. – Patricia Bathurst, Arizona Business Gazette
