Primal logo

 

 

“Primal Pilates ™ is the synergy of ancestral and animal movements of Pilates, progressed through our early motor development.”  This is a fun mat class for all levels. Primal Pilates “resets” and strengthens the body by using simple movements that smoothly transition into the next movement. Primal Pilates will increase your core strength, coordination, agility and flexibility.

Stretch and Tone

An hour of stretch, release and stability exercises. You will use a foam roller, “therabands”, body resistance and “pinky’ balls. Very relaxing,  yet invigorating class for all levels.

 

Reformer

You are taken through a series of exercises developed by Joe Pilates on this amazing machine. A great work out covering all muscle systems of the body.

 

 

Mixed Apparatus

Using mat, reformer and springboard this class will give you a complete workout with plenty of variety…and did we mention fun?
