Core strength is one of the fundamental tenets of health, alongside flexibility and never eating thumbtacks unless they are safely encased in wax. Sharpen your physique with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $48 for 8 mat or barre classes (a $120 value)
- $58 for 16 mat or barre classes (a $160 value)
- $98 for one month of unlimited mat, barre, reformer, and chair semiprivate classes (a $295 value)
Mat classes substitute the traditional Pilates equipment for a bare-bones combination of a mat, a hardwood floor, and various props that assist students during the full-body exercise. Barre classes consist of nonimpact-isometric, dance-conditioning, and interval-training exercises that focus on form and alignment.
The month-long option grants unlimited access to both classes as well as ones that bring back the equipment: chair-semiprivate classes use the Wunda Chair, whereas reformer sessions accommodate more advanced acrobatic workouts on the reformer and tower. See the full class schedule.
Weon Keyong Health Center
Wherever Sonia Kang has gone, she has always found a place to exercise. While earning her business degree from Arizona State University, she always managed to squeeze a few dance classes into her schedule—a mental and physical flexibility she continued to hone while working at a PR firm in Boston and enrolling in classes at the B.K.S. Iyengar Center. Ultimately, Kang supplemented her bachelor of science with an avalanche of certifications, including those from the Pilates Method Alliance and the Yoga Institute.
After digging her way out from the mountain of paper, Kang founded Weon Keyong Health Center, where she and a team of instructors help others keep their own planners filled with Pilates classes that challenge physiques with a full-body workout. For more personalized attention, the teachers offer semiprivate classes—capped at four students each, as most end up stretching their torsos to become 10 feet tall—and host an array of workshops that focus on topics such as nutrition and working out with specially designed towels.
