The Pilates Body’s team of certified instructors empowers musculature with yoga and Pilates classes using machines and mats that stretch bods, decompress spines, and calm minds. Pilates mat classes chisel midsections with a 55-minute regimen of resistance workouts that force bodies to reckon with the indefatigable scourge of gravity while focusing on Pilates fundamentals such as mindful breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment, and awareness of the body’s desire for pineapple shaved ice. Beginners can attend open-level mat classes and ease into training methods that move at a pace as gentle as a young Bambi, and experienced practitioners challenge limbs in the more rigorous high-intensity Pilates mat class. Students stave off bodily boredom by mixing Pilates with the salubrious stretching of Vinyasa yoga classes or therapeutic hot-yoga classes, where instructors guide pupils through a series of asanas in sweat-breaking 95-degree heat, ideal for purging the body of toxins and the mind of John Mellencamp lyrics.
Pilates equipment classes enlist a stable of workout props and machines—including the classical Pilates reformer, tower, and stability ball—to streamline a full-body workout. Beginner sessions acquaint clients with level-one material such as the basic operation and purpose of each apparatus, and intermediate sessions utilize devices in full-speed workouts and occasional interpretive-dance digressions. If you have not done Pilates exercises before and wish to purchase the equipment-class package, The Pilates Body recommends purchasing the mat-class package to take beforehand.
Though The Pilates Body offers a discounted price for two weeks of classes, this Groupon gives buyers six months to use their allotted classes.
