Your safety is our priority.
Begin with the foundational mat exercises to build a strong and connected core. Learn how to hold your head up high, keep a straight posture, strengthen your girdle to support your back, and get rid of stiffness that can lead to pain. Safe for beginners who do not have any injuries or conditions that preclude them from regular exercise.
The Reformer is where 90% of people begin their apparatus practice. It holds you in place while providing feedback and teaches your body how to move with grace and efficiency. Between the Mat and the Reformer, you will be on your way to better movement patterns and improved posture. Safe for beginners who do not have any injuries or conditions that preclude them from regular exercise.
Following a mat warm-up, you will work your core body, arms and legs with the springs on the Wall Unit Tower.

Once you are familiar with Mat 1, Reformer 1, and Tower 1, you are ready to be challenged with a faster paced workout incorporating the entire system. This class takes you through a circuit incorporating as much of the apparatus as possible for a full-body sweat session.
Continue to learn and build upon the mat sequence of exercises. At this level your body will be lead through many more planes of movement, challenging flexibility and stability, and deepening the core body connection.
