Class Experience

Students will gain strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, focus and improved body awareness, posture and alignment, while learning the principles of Pilates and some anatomy along the way.   
I have been studying and teaching Pilates for almost 20 years and have presented mind-body workshops at conferences nationwide.  I also ran my own instructor certification program, and train two competitive figure skaters.    I make it fun and relaxing, but don't let that fool you - it’s still a great workout!
From time to time, I will ask students to use a towel, small throw pillow and/or very light hand weights - such as 2- 16 oz water bottles or cans of soup.  It is great if they can have these andy but I will give students time to assemble the prop of the day at the beginning of class or in a classroom post  prior to class.  Whether we use props and which we use depend on the class.  
DStudents should have drinking water available and this class is best done barefoot.  If a student prefers light tennis shoes, that is fine, as are grippy “no slide” socks.  Regular socks alone are not advised.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

Athletes should have plenty of open space, a yoga mat, and bare feet or grippy “no-slip” socks.  Safety is my number one priority and Pilates is a perfect “prehab” exercise to help prevent athletic injuries by creating a supple and balanced body. Pilates allows for modifications and variations to accommodate any level, and we can work around many injuries.  Please advise me prior to class if your athlete has any ongoing injuries or conditions such as scoliosis, so I can adapt accordingly.   Please feel free to ask me any questions.
