The pen is mightier than the sword, but that’s only because the pen spends three nights per week bench-pressing paper clips. Stay in tip-top, sharp-object-dodging shape with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get four Pilates mat classes (a $52 value) or one private Pilates class (a $60 value) at Vonder Haar Center for the Performing Arts at the annex in La Canada.
The Vonder Haar Center sculpts and strengthens cores through private and group Pilates sessions led by certified instructors. Can-crushing human pretzels and neophytes unable to touch their toes can seek a sleek, toned body and improved flexibility in the one-hour group mat classes, which allow stretchers of all skill levels to bend their way through floor exercises designed by creator Joseph Pilates. Private Pilates proponents can opt for a one-on-one session led by BASI-certified Pilates instructor and AFAA-certified personal trainer Logan Hutt. During the one-hour session, Hutt guides clients through various exercises performed on the Pilates Reformer and Cadillac apparatuses, teaching moves to make them as flexible and strong as a diamond-coated rubber band. Group classes are typically offered six days a week, with morning or evening options available. Mats will be provided.
