When pilot lights go out, it is because they lack ample core strength, a failure that results in uncooked pilots. Keep your pilot light burning bright with today's deal: for $20, new clients get two Pilates classes (a $56 value) at the Pilates Vita studio on 6th Avenue.
Pilates Vita keeps their classes small, with a maximum of five people per class. This allows for truly personal instruction from a certified trainer happy to help your panoply of limbs stand head and shoulders above the rest. Instruction takes place in an open, airy studio, with cool lavender walls naturally lit by tall windows. A variety of equipment, including reformers and springboard machines, stand and hang proudly, ready to stretch muscular formations and ease stiff bodily brawn. The use of straps, springs, and supports creates isometric resistance in conjunction with the body's weight; under an instructor's supervision, you will use this system to increase strength, alignment, and flexibility.
In addition to being vivacious, positive forces of fitness, Pilates Vita instructors are certified trainers with a focus in rehabilitation from injury and surgery. One of the best ways to heal an injury can be to exercise the affected area while under the gaze of an expert. Check the flexible Pilates Vita schedule to find a time that works in a hectic week of work, studies, family, and spear fishing, and call ahead to reserve a spot.
Five CityVoters give Pilates Vita five stars:
- Pilates Vita has helped me stay fit and active after a back injury and during pregnancy! If you want an excellent Pilates workout, this is the place. – abjam
- Absolutely the best! great instruction, facillities and location. – Meire Z.
- Patricia the owner of Pilates Vita, is much more than a Pilates teacher. She's very good at rehabilitation of injuries and surgeries. She understands physical therapy very well. I have taken Pilates at other places before, but she is the only one to help with my lower back problem. – Rick R.
After completing years of training, earning their certifications, and memorizing more than 500 Pilates movements, aspiring instructors still aren't ready for recruitment at Vita Movement. Owner Patricia A. Robinson looks for one other crucial quality on potential résumés: adaptability. She and her highly trained staff members distinguish their teaching from rote instruction by making personal adjustments for each client. These modifications can be minute or broad, and cater to different fitness levels as well as conditions such as injury or pregnancy. In fact, Patricia specializes in pre- and postnatal workouts, regimens that have been featured on 9 News for their ability to reduce the physical stresses of motherhood. No matter the course, instructors keep a careful eye on their pupils' progress, displaying the keen attention to anatomical detail that helped them win the award for Best Pilates Studio on the 2011 Denver A-List.
The studio keeps its sessions intimate to better tailor its lessons. Reformers by Balanced Body line the brightly lit space, vying for attention with Wunda Chairs and other equipment in addition to a supply of mats, bands, and rollers. The machinery helps tone and strengthen bodies’ "powerhouse," or core, relying on springs for resistance as students stretch into adapted Pilates motions. In addition to Pilates courses, such as jump-board and Reformer classes, students can partake in TRX suspension training and indoor cycling. Pilates Vita also acts as a boutique gym, granting members full access to the all equipment as well as three genie wishes that don’t involve flying or the ability to eat 12 wedding cakes without getting sick.
