$89 for Six Pilates Equipment Classes ($218 Value)
Equipment classes make use of Reformer machines, which use a system of pulleys and springs to provide resistance as students firm their cores and increase flexibility. These classes also use the Cadillac machine, a different strengthening system that encourages alignment and flexibility. See the class schedule here.
The Pilates Scoop
After accumulating more than 14 years of Pilates experience at other fitness venues, Helen Wagner opened The Pilates Scoop to provide affordable Pilates equipment classes. The Pilates method works to tone the body’s core without adding bulk, ensuring that students don't emerge looking like a football player who just ate a medicine ball. The pulleys, cables, and springs of Reformer and Cadillac machines extend and contract as students tone their stomachs, backs, hips, buttocks, and knees.
Helen caps equipment classes at no more than six students, and also leads private, duet, and triples lessons to provide more tailored instruction. She also teaches classes in traditional Pilates methods incorporating mats, chairs, and the high ladder barrel.
