Description

Class Experience

The learner will walk away with a "taste" of what the pilates method looks and feels like. Pilates is similar to yoga but very different all at the same time. They compliment each other and similarly have many exercises that focus on the mind-body connection and full-body movement. 

At times, there will be a focus on breathwork, alignment of the body, exercises to strengthen the belly and back, exercises to strengthen the arms and legs, and exercises that focus on stretching. 

During the class series, the instructor will do her best to offer different variations to do a particular exercise to fit the needs of the mover, as there is always more than one version to do each exercise. Part of the group experience and interaction includes sharing regular video feedback with the instructor and other peers so she can help coach each learner in developing proper form, offering variations for their specific needs, and continue to encourage the overall learning process. 

The hope is the learner will walk away feeling energized and confident, ready to tackle their next part of their day!
I am a comprehensively trained and certified Pilates instructor. I have over 600 hours of training under my belt and have been teaching Pilates for over 10 years and have been a dance and theater educator for over 20 years.

I love sharing my passion and expertise in movement with all ages. I find that a regular Pilates practice can help benefit children and teens by instilling confidence in themselves as they grow strong, focused, centered, and flexible. 
No outside supplies will be needed other than a clear space to move in. A yoga mat or a few towels can be supportive and helpful when doing the exercises that require the learner to lie on the floor, but not necessary.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Disclaimer: Parents/Guardians/Caregivers please read:

- By signing up for this class you are aware of, and understand, the risk of injury. 
- You (the parent/guardian/caregiver) fully release the instructor (Miss Dori) from responsibility. 
- They (Miss Dori) will not be responsible for monitoring how well the student is maintaining safety.
- By signing up for this class, you (the parent, guardian, and/or caregiver) understand that this is your responsibility, to offer such supervision.  

Please Note: this class does not meet live:

- It is an asynchronous class designed for learners interested in learning pilates at their own pace versus in the live classroom setting. 
- If you are looking for live pilates classes, check out my Focus and Flow Pilates Study Break. 

Please Communicate:

- Any modifications or information pertinent to the learner that will help me to better address their movement needs at least 24
hours before the start of class so that I have adequate time to plan for variations. 
- If communicated less than 24 hours, there is no guarantee that I will be able to address such in the same way. 
- Within flex course as well as a "live" course, I do my best to offer modifications for any movers that may need additional variations/support due to any limitations they may have. My hope is to fully inspire them to move with grace and confidence.

During class: 

- Please provide closeby supervision. 
- Create an open workout space free of any items that could potentially trip or cause the learner to slip. 
- Encourage your learner to wear clothing that is comfortable and easy to move in such as yoga pants, sweat pants, t-shirts, slip-free socks, bare feet, etc.
- Have a water bottle close by in case your learner feels they need something to drink.
- As movement is performed on the floor. It would be ideal to have a yoga mat, be in a room with carpet, or have access to multiple towels the learner could lie down on as needed.
