To fit in all the fun summer has to offer, we offer a condensed class schedule this session. By meeting multiple times per week, students will see greater progress in vocabulary retention and muscle memory in a shorter period of time. Have fun with new friends, learn from fabulous instructors, and try a new genre!

Pilates Classes

Fridays
June 22 - July 31

Pilates classes are open to the general public, no experience required. Through low impact exercise with emphasis on proper form, each workout provides the information and guidance to master the skills of coordination, strength, endurance, balance, and integration, and the opportunity to try new challenges every time.

Pilates is useful for any age or occupation, and this class allows participants to connect with and strengthen their own bodily knowledge and to cultivate healthy, happy, and whole selves.

Classes are taught by certified Pilates instructors.
