PilatesGive your body the Life it deserves
We offer Pilates Equipment training in Groups of 4 people max, semi- and one-on-one private instruction. Every month we also hold specialized Classes and Workshops. These focus on certain areas of the body like Hips & Thighs, Shoulder & Neck, and more. Whether you’re just starting out, or ready to kick your existing Pilates practice to the next level, these extra monthly events are a terrific addition!
While Pilates is excellent cross-conditioning for athletes of all ages, a number of our clients seek us out after therapy; or use Pilates along with their physical therapy or chiropractic care to recover.
We’re very familiar and have a long history working with post-injury and post natal. We often get referrals from these health care professionals. It’s even more fun for us as teachers too, since we truly get where you’re coming from and can help you stay motivated to improve core strength and stamina in your recovery, and maintain good habits of posture that’ll support everything you’re working towards – for life!
We’re here to partner with you in advancing your health and fitness. Our aim is to help you improve your quality of life through a dedicated movement practice. You want to look and feel your best in all that you do. And we’ve seen that Pilates as a method, helps each person that comes into our studio, systematically make significant changes for the better. That’s our mission! Will we occasionally lose count when doing the Hundred? Okay, maybe that’ll happen, but here at Embody Movement, you’ll get the deep work BOTH through concentration and some good belly laughs in between.
We strive to achieve the goal Joseph Pilates had in mind for his method: to “develop the body uniformly, correct posture, restore vitality, invigorate the mind and elevate the spirit.”
We look forward to meeting you in the studio!
New Client Deals
Get the most out of your Pilates practice! Choose one of 2 *Introductory options.
Group Reformer Classes
Our Group Reformer classes are listed in the online schedule and have no more than 4 people max. This environment creates a community of camaraderie, and allows for instructor guidance in an intimate group setting so you still receive individual attention. Train the body, align the back and neck, and challenge the deep core and balance. The studio equipment utilizes spring tension which offers the ability to challenge the body in resistance, while also providing support as you become proficient with the movements.
Reformer Intro Level Class
Perfect for those new to Pilates and have completed the Beginner Getting Started series, as well as those returning to Pilates practice from a break. Your instructor will lead you through an in-depth series of Pilates Reformer Level I Exercises. The class covers the integral nature of movement and breath while also introducing you to the Level I work. You will learn core Fundamentals and how to apply these to your workout. In the weeks that follow, as you become familiar with the base, you gradually broaden your Reformer repertoire, deepening the work in your core, and the understanding of applying that to movement in and outside of class.
Reformer Mixed Level Class
Mixed Level is for those who are well acquainted with the Pilates reformer and familiar with body alignment and the terminology used during a Pilates workout. Individuals should also be able to keep up with the pace and tempo of a class setting.
*Pre-requisite to joining a group class is the completion of either the Getting Started Private Package of 3 private sessions, or the Getting Started Intro Group Reformer series, so that you learn the proper breathing, alignment and are oriented to the equipment.
Partner with a friend or family member and keep yourself motivated! Partner sessions (also referred to as Duets) are a great way to share Pilates with a work out “buddy.” Ideally each person in the Duet will have completed their First Visit Consultation. While you will be working out together, it’s still important for our instructors to establish individualized health history and goals that will be programmed into the session. By the way, Pilates was created by a man, originally for men – so it’s a great workout for them too!
As with Private Sessions, Duets can include the use of all Pilates equipment, mat and other props for challenging strength and coordination. Work outs may include interactive challenges between you and your partner, or depending on your experience level and skill – each person may be working on different pieces of equipment. You get to share your workout time with a friend, with personalized attention, in a cost-effective option.
These sessions are tailored to your needs and your specific rehabilitative, sport or fitness goals. A Private is One Teacher with One Student. There may be more than one private session occurring in the studio at any given time.
Learn proper breathing, spinal alignment, mental focus, and body control. Sessions can include all Pilates equipment, also referred to as “apparatus”, as well as mat and other props for challenging strength and coordination.
