PILATES EQUIPMENT

Whole Body Studios offers Pilates equipment classes for every age and skill level. Equipment Pilates classes are an excellent way to infuse extra weight-bearing into your workout routine. All equipment is provided by the studio, and Whole Body is happy to provide high-end Balanced Body brand reformers, tower systems, chairs, and cadillacs.

Equipment Beginner:
These classes are designed for those new to Pilates and for those wanting to brush up on their fundamental Pilates skills. They will use any of the equipment that the teacher decides is beneficial to the individuals in the class, including reformer, tower, chair, mat, barrels, and foam roller. A great class for all levels to focus on fundamentals!

Equipment Intermediate:
Teachers may use any of the various pieces of equipment in these classes, which are ideal for students who are more familiar with Pilates principles and who want to step up the intensity of their workout. These classes move at a faster pace than beginner classes and will build on fundamental techniques.

Reformer Beginner/Intermediate:
Designed for newcomers to Pilates and for those who are familiar with fundamental Pilates exercises but want to brush up on their skills or prefer a more relaxed workout, these classes provide a great transition from private sessions into group classes.

Reformer Intermediate:
Designed for students who have a working knowledge of Pilates fundamentals and who want to step up their workout, these are excellent classes for those who have taken many private lessons and are ready for a challenging group class. These classes are also good for those who have taken many beginner classes and are ready for a new challenge.

Reformer Advanced: 
These classes are designed for students who have taken Pilates classes or privates for a while and feel fit and comfortable enough with intermediate exercises, or who want to learn more advanced Pilates exercises. Students must be able to execute all beginner and many intermediate exercises. The pace of this class is much quicker than beginner and intermediate classes and requires a solid working knowledge of and comfort level with the Pilates equipment.

Chair—All Levels: 
Wunda chair was Joseph Pilates’ way of pronouncing “wonder” chair. Come experience this compact, efficient piece of Pilates equipment! The teacher will modify exercises for all levels, and this class is a wundaful (pun intended) challenge to add to your existing Pilates workout. Students should complete at least a few private lessons or beginner group reformer or mat classes before attending a chair class.

Prenatal Equipment: 
This class is designed specifically for expectant mothers. As you body changes during pregnancy, you need certain exercises more than others. There are also exercises that should be avoided during this exciting time. This class will create a safe, comfortable space to help you learn which exercises are appropriate so you can take that information into other classes. Also, this class will let you create a community with other expectant mamas while keeping your changing body in shape!

BARRE

Our classes use the fundamental Whole Body Barre™ approach, which combines dance, Pilates, and yoga movements to stretch, lengthen and tone the whole body. We teach to the beat use plié, balancé, relevé, and other ballet movements aimed at building a dancer’s physique. We limit our class size to ensure each student receives one-on-one attention. All equipment is provided at the studio.

Whole Body Barre—All Levels:
Ideal for beginners and intermediate students, these classes are set to music and use Pilates, yoga, and ballet exercises to strengthen and lengthen your body. The classes also often integrate light free weights, exercise balls, glider, and/or resistance bands to strengthen the body and give you a full-body workout.

Whole Body Barre—Express:
These classes take the all-levels format up a notch by incorporating free weights and weighted balls in a shorter period but with a bit more intensity. While the core components of these classes are fast-paced repetitious ballet movements, anyone, including those without a dance background, can easily keep up thanks to step-by-step instruction.

Sculpt takes mat work to the next level by adding free weights, cardio, and bands into the session. While still low impact, you’ll get heart pumping movements in this format!
