The Pilates Method is an investment in your overall health and wellness. Each individual has a unique body type with his or her own fitness challenges. BodyWave Pilates highly recommends all new clients start with an Initial Consultation, then privates sessions.
The Initial Consultation is a one hour private session which includes an individual evaluation and postural assessment. We recommend this session for seasoned pilates clients new to our studio as well as clients new to pilates. You will be introduced to the fundamental principles and exercises of pilates. We will discuss your personal goals to help plan the direction of your pilates experience with us. Dress appropriately for a workout.
We focus your private sessions to your body's specific abilities and needs. A wide range of Pilates equipment (reformer, cadillac, chair, spine corrector, ladder barrel) and mat will be utilized during your hour session.
Group classes are 55 minutes in length
Introductory Pilates Class 1 & 2
If you are new to Pilates and prefer a group setting, start with our Introductory Pilates class. Learn the fundamental principals of breathing, core connection, postural alignment, coordination and joint mobility. Introductory Pilates 1: mat and reformer. Introductory Pilates 2: chair and tower
A solid mat foundation is key to progressing in the Pilates Method. Our mat classes build upon the six principles of Pilates: control, concentration, center, precision, flow and breath. The Pilates fundamentals, which include pelvic stability, joint mobility, spinal imprinting/alignment and core engagement are equally essential to mastering the Pilates Method.
Pilates Barre Class
This non-impact group class is designed to strengthen, tone and balance the entire body. The workout will include the use of the ballet barre, light free weights and various props. As with Pilates, emphasis on form, alignment, control, precision and concentration will be key. Toning and resistance exercises will focus on the core, arms, gluteus and thighs.
The Reformer is a highly specialized piece of equipment that features a bed-like platform, which slides along tracks with a spring system for resistance. The challenge of exercising on this equipment comes from the spring system and maintaining balance and control on a moving surface, while focusing on the core and alignment.
A minimum of 10 private sessions are required prior to entering a reformer class.
The ten private sessions will instruct you in the fundamentals of Pilates, proper body alignment as well as the basic exercises that are performed regularly on the Reformer. Please call the studio to schedule your sessions.
A unique workout using the reformer, exo chair, tower, mat or jumpboard. Previous experience on the reformer is required.
Combo Class 1
This class is the next step after completing Introductory Pilates 1 & 2. Students will continue learning pilates using the reformer, exo chair, tower, jumpboard and mat.
A unique Pilates workout using a variety of Pilates props. Enhance your workout using the foam roller, theraband, pilates circle, mini balls or physio balls.
The pilates tower is sometimes referred to as the 1/2 cadillac or trapeze table. This unique apparatus is a horizontal table with a tall wooden frame on one end. This frame has an assortment of levers, springs and strap attachments. The tower utilizes spring-based resistance with the push-through bar, roll back bar, leg springs and arm springs to challenge and strengthen the entire body.
The Exo Chair is one of the most challenging pieces of Pilates equipment in terms of building strength in the legs and shoulders while still giving the benefits of added core stability. Adding the resistance tubes provides a full body workout, training every major muscle group. Some exercises that could only be done on the Cadillac or Reformer can be performed using this unique chair system.
