Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for five group mat classes (a $75 value)
- $25 for one 55-minute private Pilates lesson (a $60 value)
A maximum of four students attend mat classes to tone muscles through Pilates exercises without apparatus. During private lessons, instructors guide students through exercises on specially designed Pilates apparatus.
Lisa Humphries is a certified Pilates practitioner and a licensed chiropractic-therapy assistant. At Proper Pilates—the Pilates studio she operates inside Absolute Wellness—Lisa, Tammy Cox, and Kristi Turner combine knowledge gleaned from the two disciplines to sculpt bodies with safe stretches. Under their guidance, students perform exercises using special apparatus such as the Arc Step Barrel and the Clinical Reformer—built with a trapeze—toning muscles and increasing flexibility so that every joint on the body can spin 360 degrees. Those who opt for private lessons get an added benefit: at the end of sessions, one of the instructors manually stretches clients' muscles while they recline on a specially designed table.
