The neuromuscular system mediates all movement, granting humans the ability to high-five after swallowing baby alligators without chewing. Upkeep muscle junctions with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five Pilates mat classes (a $90 value) at Pilates on 10th.
Pilates on 10th's dedicated brood of trained muscle molders gently elongates spines and loosens limbs through body-harmonizing classes. With a series of movements and breaths, extremities are tightly trimmed and cores etch-a-sketched to display deep crevices and curves. Each class incorporates graceful and fluid movements to help straighten posture, increase flexibility, and bolt down balance as recovering injuries are pep talked to strength. There are four levels of mat sessions available: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and mat basics, all occurring weekly.
Exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and a natural glow from vintage skylights drench the serene studio, a 1935 Capitol Hill landmark, in charming, welcoming tones. A recent renovation willed a host of new additions into existence, such as a cooling system for fussy auras and cork flooring for joint comfort. Water, mats, and towels are provided, reiterating the worthlessness of hand-woven banana-leaf mats.
Seven Yelpers give Pilates on 10th a five-star average:
- I have 3 different teachers a week for the Intermediate/Advanced class. They know who you are the second time you learn from them, they are all skilled teachers, and each one has a unique style. – angela b., 7/23/10
- Studio: Large, open, clean, inviting. I especially like the touch of (lavender?) that they use in the cleaning solution for the mats. – Jamie D., 11/16/10
