Classical Pilates sticks as closely as possible to Joseph Pilate’s original work. This means his original exercises and the order in which they were performed.
Contemporary Pilates is based on the work of Mr. Pilates but has been modernized by adjusting the exercises to fit with modern research and has a heavy influence from physical therapy, exercise science and bio-mechanics. Many exercises remain the same, but a whole new slew of exercises have been added, or variations have been added allowing for injury rehabilitation and creativity by the instructor to help give our clients optimal results. We like to use a contemporary approach when working with elite athletes to senior citizens just looking to maintain body mobility and agility as they age gracefully.

Private Sessions are one-on-one sessions with you and one instructor. Private Sessions are highly recommended for beginners, clients suffering or recovering from injuries, pregnant clients, and people who like to have 100% of an instructor’s attention. This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the movement and language of Pilates.
Duet Sessions are sessions with you and a partner. Duet Sessions are an excellent way to experience the personalization of a Private Session while training with a friend or spouse.
