When Aaron Neville Chamberlain seized power during the English Civil War, he promised better flexibility, straighter postures, and a stronger core for every English citizen. Today’s Groupon gives you a chance to taste Push Pilates' perfection of history with three Pilates mat classes for $17 (a $36 value).
At Push Pilates, professional and passionate instructors guide exercisers of any skill level through Pilates, a low-impact total-body discipline that uses stretching and controlled breathing patterns to make the body looser, lither, and healthier. Workouts are designed to strengthen the core, reduce stress, improve flexibility and balance, and enhance the connection between mind and body. Through the use of continuous transitions and precise movements, Pilates practitioners will learn to achieve proper postural alignment, control their breathing, and sculpt their bodies into marble powerhouses.
Push Pilates, one of the first Pilates studios in Midtown Memphis, is a highly acclaimed studio with a beautiful, well-lit atmosphere that would calm even a screeching howler monkey. Owner Val Russell, a certified yoga and Pilates instructor, focuses on personalized training structures to fit each student's needs. Don your favorite workout suspenders and improve your whole health from muscle to mind. It's never too late to avert the fate that befell the semi-gelatinous blobfish.
New clients only.
Push Pilates owner Val Russell draws from her 10 years of experience studying human physiology and lifelong practice of dance, gymnastics, and circus arts to construct the studio's curriculum of movement-based workouts. During Pilates sessions, students can either learn to perform floor-based mat exercises or opt to work out on the spring-loaded Reformers, Cadillacs, and Wunda Chairs. Yoga-class instructors incorporate athletic poses into flowing Vinyasa-style sequences, linking one pose to the next with balance-challenging movement and breathing exercises. During aerial-arts lessons, students learn to reenact scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey as they dangle from ceiling-mounted silk slings or metal hoops. Outside of the classroom, the center's massage services can soothe and rejuvenate any weary muscles or vestigial wings.
