Certified Pilates matwork instructor Viviana Vargas melds extensive Pilates training with injury recovery experience to boost students' balance and coordination. In the comfortable facilities of Pilates on Pinecroft, Vargas leads a schedule of Pilates Essential Matwork classes, coaching up to 10 students as they lengthen limbs with methodical Pilates movements designed to realign spines and improve posture. During each intensive 55-minute session, students work muscles with the goal of gradually regaining strength through a series of sustained movements, which, unlike high-fiving Paul Bunyan, can be done sitting, standing, or reclining. The Pilates guru patiently guides pupils through measured breathing, customizing exercises to improve students' range of motion. Following each core-fortifying lesson, students can emerge with increased mobility and flexibility, reducing the difficulty of everyday tasks and charades-mandated windmill impersonations.
All sessions must be completed within 60 days of activation and require reservations at least two hours prior to class.
Pilates on Pinecroft
By teaching mat- and machine-based Pilates workouts, Pilates on Pinecroft's three certified instructors help students improve their physical fitness, recover from injuries, and augment their athleticism. The team welcomes new students to schedule a private session to become better acquainted with the system of ropes and pulleys that comprise Pilates Reformer machines, and in the process master core-bolstering mat moves. The staff also encourages clients who prefer to dive right into one of the studio's dynamic group classes. Classes incorporate props such as foam rollers, bands, exercise balls, and goofy abstract items attached to improve comedians, all of which conspire to promote the development of lean muscle and increase flexibility.
