Certified instructors introduce students to the basic movements of Pilates in mat classes, increasing the difficulty for experienced students with deeper poses. Classes provide proper instruction for core work in hopes of producing the best fitness results. They hold classes six days a week, barring Sunday. Instructors also schedule semi-private reformer equipment sessions on demand, taking no more than three students at a time to ensure everyone has correct form and plenty of personal attention.
Fueled by Joseph Pilates' belief that exercise should enhance and support the natural machinery of the human body, instructors lead students through a tapestry of intense, focused moves that draw from weight training, aerobics, yoga, and tai chi. In addition to leading group mat classes aimed at boosting core strength, they stock their hardwood studio with machines such as Cadillacs, ladder barrels, and reformers that rely on handles, ropes, and pulleys to heighten the workouts. The staffers offer semi-private and private lessons that focus exclusively on these reformer machines, which each face their own mirror so practitioners can perfect their poses and James Cagney impersonations simultaneously. To liven up the floor routines, they sometimes combine elements of TRX suspension training or ballet-barre workouts, both excellent complements to the intense core work of Pilates.
