Healthy Bones: Pilates for Active Aging
Healthy Bones-Pilates for Active Aging class is a Pilates workout that uses bone-strengthening techniques while focusing on alignment and balance, gait (walking) improvement, and working towards a stronger active daily lifestyle. The workout targets the glutes (tush), hips, arms and back, legs and feet, while giving the whole body a terrific workout. The importance of weight-bearing exercise that loads and strengthens bones (which cannot be underestimated) as well as focusing on the abdominals, all without using “crunches,” – is a strong focus in our class.
If you are are in your golden years, have Low Bone Density, Osteopenia or Osteoporosis, then this is the class for you!

Post Natal Pilates
Congratulations! You have a new addition (or additions) to your family! Getting back in shape after having a baby can seem an intimidating and time consuming task. But Pilates can help speed the process along. Pilates offers the perfect post-natal workout and can be practiced by new mothers in varying post-natal stages. It is a wonderful workout for the new mother.
Postnatal helps to re-gain the core strength in the abdominals as you work towards a safe and effective recovery- taking into account any added injuries or imbalances. Easing back into your Pilates practice, you should have given yourself time for your abdominal muscles to recover prior to joining a postnatal Pilates Mat class. It is recommended to wait a minimum of 6 weeks and possibly longer depending on the specifics of your delivery.
** Babies 6 weeks until they are crawling are welcome!
Tweens & Teens aged 11-15 will love this 45 minute Pilates class geared toward their age group. Stretch & strengthen to avoid the dreaded ‘computer posture’ that can wreak havoc on young growing bodies.
This class will work to avoid long term effects from computer/desk sitting, heavy back packs and texting… all over usage, prolonged & repetitive patterns that can change the outcome of a youthful body while they are growing in their formative years. Body awareness and posture are so critical at this age.
This class is great for ALL Tweens & Teens…. whether they are or aren’t athletes. We aim to help your children to develop tools that they’ll have for the rest of their lives.
We do NOT focus on weight or weight loss in these classes – body image is also a critical concept during this age (heck any age really, right?!) and the emphasis is health benefits (i.e.. sleeping better, better focus etc), movement, posture and awareness.
