Have you tried a virtual class yet? These are challenging times and it’s very important that we keep our bodies moving and our minds calm. Virtual classes are the safest and most effective way to achieve our fitness and wellness goals.

 Here are just a few of the benefits of virtual workouts

1. You HAVE the time

Virtual classes offer you the luxury of working out at your own convenience, so you’ll always find the time to fit one of your favorite sessions. No travel time. no excuses.

2. You can workout from ANYWHERE

Since virtual workouts are available on your mobile devices, you can do them from anywhere. You can take your workout with you outside, to a friend’s house or in your own living room.

3. Your CONFIDENCE will go up big time 

No pressure to keep up or compare yourself to others. Virtual workouts will only have you competing with yourself ( or those in your “bubble”) No gym pressure = more self focus

4. You’re part of our COMMUNITY

Virtual communities can help generate enthusiasm, motivation and support, which will increase your drive. The increased social interaction allows you to become more invested in your workout so that you are more likely to show up for the next one.

5. You will receive PROFESSIONAL guidance

Virtual programs have the most qualified instructors teaching their classes. These trainers offer detailed instructions and exercises so that you get the most out of your workout. The variety of instructors and type of classes will keep you motivated.


Here are some things to know about a session or class on the pilates reformer machine.

1. You’ll Use A Reformer A reformer is a piece of equipment, and you’ll be using one during your group workout. The reformer moves in a similar way to a rowing machine, in that it consists of a large horizontal plate, or carriage, that moves back and forth on a track. Attached to the carriage is a headrest and two shoulder blocks, which help to keep you in position through a movement. One end of the reformer contains an adjustable bar for resting your feet or hands and adjustable springs that tailor the impact of your workout. The strap and pulley mechanism attaches to the other end of the reformer, giving you an added element of resistance.

2. Wear Figure-Hugging Workout Gear Did you know that the type of clothing you wear to your Pilates classes can affect your workout? Form-fitting clothing will keep you from getting injured during Pilates classes. Baggy workout pants can become trip hazards, or get in the way as you work through your movements. Baggy shirts and sweaters can get caught in the equipment, making for an uncomfortable session.

3. Reformers Add Resistance Resistance exercises are when you use force to push or pull against a greater weight than your muscles are used to. Adding resistance to a workout is important because it increases your muscle strength and density. Mat-based Pilates classes add resistance using bodyweight movements. Adding a reformer into the mix means you’ll be getting muscle-strengthening benefits a mat-based class can’t offer.


Studio Etiquette

Make sure you let us know about any health conditions and your level of fitness.

  • Don’t force any movements or poses.
  • Mastery will come with practice.
  • Wear comfortable clothing and expect to take off your shoes for some of our classes.
  • Empty Stomachs: Do not eat for at least an hour and a half before class. Food in the stomach can reduce range of motion and reduce energy level, which can adversely affect your strength and stamina as well as your ability to concentrate.
  • Non-Scents: Refrain from wearing perfumes or scented lotions. Some people have extremely sensitive respiratory systems.
  • Electronics: Please turn off all cell phones.
