We teach you how to do a full body foam roller in about 1/2 an hour, then use props like tennis balls, dowels, and straps for self-massage and stretching. For the duration of class we stretch deep into your hips, hamstrings, calves, quads, pecs, shoulders, chest, and more. The class is once a month.

Pre-payment required, and space is limited. See pricing page to pre-pay.

Intermediate/Advanced Pilates mat classes are not for beginners, but may be appropriate if you are otherwise active and not injured. Please contact us to see what class would be best to place you in. We recommend that everyone take at least one private lesson to determine placement into mat class. Props like magic circles and exercise weights are used to enhance the workout. Each week is a different theme.

Beginner/Mixed level Pilates mat class teaches the fundamentals of the Classical mat, incorporating exercise weights and magic circles. We allow beginners without major injuries into this class and cater it to the people who are there. We make sure everyone is getting a workout at a level that is appropriate for them.

Beginner Mat class series is offered for absolute beginners on occasion. Otherwise we offer the beginner/mixed level class. Please contact us if you are interested in beginner mat class. The Beginner Mat class series is designed for new clients to learn the fundamentals of the Pilates Mat sequence. We will break down various exercises and help you get a strong foundation for mat, equipment, and at-home workouts. We'll target your core, arms, legs, and bottom, using various props such as arm weights and the Pilates Magic Circle to help us. Experienced Pilates students also welcome, for those who want to slow down and get back to the basics of Pilates in order to strengthen their practice.

We recommend that everyone take at least one private lesson to determine placement into mat class.

Reformer on the Mat:

The reformer is a quintessential piece of Pilates equipment. With four springs and a carriage that moves beneath you, you get a total body workout with spring resistance. See http://pilates-gratz.com/reformer.html for photos and a video of the reformer in action! Many of these exercises can be done on the mat for an extra challenge. This mat class will focus on reformer exercises. If you'd like to work on the real reformer, private sessions are available. Come see what it's all about!

Mat on the Wall:

This is a classical class using the wall as your prop! The wall supports you and gives you great feedback for some exercises, and further challenges you in others! This class is a great way to learn how to make use of your mat workout at home, and when traveling. A perfect compliment to your vacation, this mat class would be ideal in a hotel room!
