What We do
Perfect Balance Pilates is a Reformer & Mat Pilates Studio. Choose the class that's right for you!
WHAT IS PILATES?
Pilates is known to stretch, strengthen, gain flexibility and balance your body, while connecting the mind with the body. Strengthening the ‘Powerhouse’ which includes the abdomen, lower back, hips and buttocks is the biggest benefit that you will get while practicing Pilates. Pilates incorporates all of the above with an emphasis on particular breathing patterns.
WHAT IS MAT PILATES?
A Mat Pilates class consists of Pilates exercises done on a mat,either standing, sitting or lying down position. The primary focus is on awareness of the spine, proper breathing, core strength and flexibility. The outcome of Pilates training is a balanced body which is strong and supple, flat stomach, balanced legs, and a strong back. All Equipment provided. Check out this fun, energized class!!!
Wunda Chair & Barre Pilates
Come experience the Pilates Wunda Chair & Pilates Barre in this 45 minute class, limited to 3 Participants!!
WHAT IS REFORMER PILATES?
Invented by Pilates founder Joseph Pilates, the reformer is a bed-like frame with a flat platform on it, called the carriage, which rolls back and forth on wheels within the frame. The carriage is attached to one end of the reformer by a set of springs. The springs provide choices of differing levels of resistance as the carriage is pushed or pulled along the frame. One of the best things about the reformer is its versatility. Exercises can be done lying down, sitting, standing, pulling the straps, pushing the footbar, so many different ways with just one relatively sleek piece of equipment.
JUMP BOARD PILATES:
Cardio, the Pilates way! Using the Pilates Jump board, a padded board that replaces the foot bar on a Pilates Reformer, it is comparable to lying down and jumping on a trampoline! This unique piece of equipment makes it possible to have a very safe and low impact cardio workout on the Pilates Reformer! Cardio Pilates Classes are full body and combine intervals of toning and cardio for the most effective caloric burn. This class will combine tradition Reformer exercises also.
WHAT IS BODY SCULPTING?
Move to the music with light free weights. Every major muscle group is used in this 50 minute workout. All equipment provided. Come join the fun!
