Pilates Roll & Release
Trigger points are sore spots that form within muscles or tendons. Foam rolling is a way of massaging away muscle soreness in trigger points and preparing your muscles for deeper stretching. Using the foam roller and lacrosse ball to loosen the tension in your muscles provides an excellent way of obtaining the benefits of self-myofascial release.
By using transitions and the breath, discover sequences designed to increase overall body conditioning and control. A flowing repertoire of stretching, strengthening and stabilizing exercises. This Pilates workout will get you firm, fit and flexible all over. Suitable for all fitness levels.
Pilates Power Fusion
If you are looking for a challenge, this is the class to push your limits. Power Fusion is a Pilates-based mat class that blends classical Pilates exercises with other full-body, muscle-burning movements. This class is not your average Pilates class, so be prepared to sweat, move and tone your entire body.
*Matwork experience suggested.
The Reformer’s multi-functional structure and adjustable controls make it a magic machine for anyone and everyone. On one hand, it supports rehabilitative exercises, for those recovering from sports injuries. On the other hand, it also provides the optimal targeted resistance for strength training, for those seeking that extra calorie burn.
Whether you’re overcoming physical vulnerability or sculpting your dream body, the Reformer is the go-to superprop we all need.
A prerequisite for those who have never taken a Reformer class and who intend to take any of the reformer-based classes.
