CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Zoe offers mat and reformer classes, and is also available for private and semi-private sessions. All sessions are 55 minutes in length. Pre-registration is required for all sessions.

MAT CLASS

Level II Mat - Level II Mat is for the client who is either new to Pilates and/or looking for a more moderate Pilates experience. This does not mean you won't work hard! All it means is the work will be more suitable to all body types. Bottom line? You will learn the fundamentals of Pilates which will stay with you as you travel out to the real world and navigate your daily life. This class will prepare you for Level III mat, if you so choose.

Level III Mat - Level III Mat is the class where you are transitioning from a beginner to an advanced practitioner; it is truly an intermediate class. This class is for healthy bodies who are familiar with Pilates. This is the class where you will work on perfecting the fundamental tools you learned in Level II, so that if you so choose, you can enter Level IV.

Level IV Mat - Level IV Mat follows the classical mat routine and order originally established by Joseph Pilates. Each of these exercises, in and of themselves, are challenging; put them together, back to back, without a break, and you've got quite a workout! This class is most suited to healthy, balanced bodies who have mastered levels II and III.

REFORMER CLASS

Level II Reformer - Level II Reformer class follows the Classical Flow but is at a slower pace so you can pay attention to form and working correctly. Much of the choreography of the classical reformer routine is complicated and takes time to learn and master. In this class you can take the time to focus on the movements without feeling rushed. Some fun and interesting non-classical exercises will be thrown into the mix to add new challenges to the body and mind. This class will prepare you for Level III Reformer.

Level III Reformer - Level III Reformer is an exciting blend of fast-paced movement and deep stretches. At this level the exercises flow from one to the next and require a balance of strength and flexibility to accomplish these challenging movements. If you are looking for a challenge this class is for you! This class is appropriate for healthy bodies with a familiarity of Pilates and who have mastered Level II Reformer.

PRIVATE SESSIONS

Private sessions are the perfect place to address the needs of the individual client. With feedback from the client and his or her body, Zoe will tailor each session to that client.  As the client’s Pilates journey continues s/he will become stronger, more limber, and better in control of his or her body.

Private sessions are also appropriate for the client who wants to join classes but is not quite ready for the flow of a class. Classes can be fast paced and intimidating if you are working on learning the fundamentals of Pilates. In the case of the reformer classes it also takes time to get used to the equipment. Private sessions ease the transition from newbie to class member, injured to healthy, weak to strong.
