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.
