Pilates originated in the early 20th century, and it can help improve flexibility, cognitive function, and the mind-body connection.
If you would like to give it a try, the best nearby studios include:
Bird Dog Pilates
Nestled in the Roosevelt district, Bird Dog Pilates offers classes for all ages and abilities. The instructors provide semi-private and small group classes to best meet everyone's needs, and the studio comes complete with state-of-the-art equipment. Sixty-minute sessions are held six days a week, and many are taught by Wes Waggener. He has been teaching since 1997 and holds a Ph.D. in kinesiology.
Students who have never tried Pilates can enjoy a complimentary orientation. This one-on-one session focuses on the equipment and proper breathing techniques.
Established by siblings Peter and Laura Morgan, Reformed Pilates fuses the classical elements of Pilates with interval training. This provides students with a full body workout, and the instructors strive to help everyone live their best life. The studio offers a supportive atmosphere, and classes always start by focusing on the core. Sessions last for fifty minutes and include Reform, Reform Strengthening, and Reform Cardio.
Clients can also enjoy the Reformed Cycle classes. Each bike is equipped with a computer so riders can track their progress, and the workouts are designed to offer the most efficient calorie burn possible.
Lifestyle Pilates boasts that after ten sessions you'll feel a difference, and after twenty sessions you'll see a difference. The studio strives to help people change their lives in a healthy, positive way, and instructor Susan Tasker helps everyone meet their fitness goals. She became certified in the Pilates method in 2004, and also enjoys supporting local charitable organizations.
