Pilates Mixed Apparatus 1: ESSENTIALS (Beginning)

This is where clients new to Pilates, and with no special needs, can begin their journey at our studio.  This level will teach you all the Pilates principles to build a solid movement foundation. Essential mat and equipment exercises are introduced to help you master the basics of Pilates with attention to detail. This level will help you build a foundation of core strength, gain over all strength and flexibility and improve your balance. Modifications are offered for all exercises. This level is also appropriate for those with osteoporosis. We ask those with special needs or issues to begin with private training.

Pilates Mixed Apparatus 2: PROGRESSION (Beginning/Intermediate)

Students can progress to this level after attending the ESSENTIALS Level for a minimum of 8-12 classes. The foundation exercises are augmented with additional beginning to intermediate classical and contemporary exercises. You will continue to build core strength as well as increase your flexibility, balance, strength and endurance.  Modifications and progressions are included. This level starts to move with a moderate class flow as you to continue on your Pilates journey. Pilates Mixed Apparatus 2.5 incorporates more intermediate level exercises on all of the apparatus. Level 2.5 has a slightly faster class flow and starts to incorporate more advanced exercises on all of the equipment.

Pilates Mixed Apparatus 3: INTERMEDIATE APPARATUS FLOW (Intermediate)

Students can progress to this level after mastering the PROGRESSION level exercises with the recommendation of your instructor. This is an intermediate level providing quicker transitions and a faster flow from one exercise to the next and one piece of apparatus to the next.  Classes use increased resistance, repetition, coordination, and balance challenges using both classical and contemporary Pilates’ intermediate repertoire.  Selected advanced exercises are introduced at this level.

Pilates Mixed Apparatus 4: PILATES POWER CHALLENGE (Skilled Intermediate/Advanced)

This class is for advanced students only, with the skill, strength, and endurance needed to perform all intermediate and advanced Pilates exercises with proper form and alignment on all equipment. Both contemporary and classical exercises are included in a fast paced flow to challenge our most advanced students. Mastery of INTERMEDIATE level exercises is required to attend this level with your instructor’s recommendation. No classes available at this time.

Pilates Suspension Method  (PSM)

PSM takes traditional and contemporary Pilates equipment and mat exercises and takes them to the suspension straps to improve your core and overall body strength and flexibility.  Each PSM exercise has a Pilates root exercise done on the Mat and Pilates apparatus. Pilates Suspension Method classes will help you improve your Pilates Apparatus class technique and will help you gain strength for the apparatus exercises! Classes are taught by advanced Certified PSM instructor, Paula Anderson. No classes available at this time.

Get Pilates STRONG: Strength Training Redesigned for Osteoporosis, Nurturing Gains.
