Body In Motion offers classically based authentic Pilates. Our instructors use beautifully crafted wood and steal framed, leather strapped apparatus that hold-up to Mr. Pilates original designs and standards. Our studio includes Reformers, Towers, Chairs, Barrels, Mats, and small props including the Magic Circle. We offer private instruction, small group equipment classes, and Pilates Mat classes tailored to all levels and abilities.

Class Descriptions

    • Pilates Mat Classes: Joseph Pilates method was originally designed on the Mat. This is the heart and soul of the method. All you need is a cushioned mat and your body to begin your total body conditioning! Sometimes we add small props like the Magic Circle to challenge or help with this repertoire.
    • Tower Group Class: The Tower or Wall Unit is a vertical bar system with springs that are attached at one end of a cushioned mat. Adding the Tower apparatus to your Mat work will bring new challenges or needed assistance to help you strengthen and lengthen!
    • Group Equipment Classes: Mr. Pilates later developed various apparatus to help people “get the method in their bodies”. The apparatus include but are not limited to the Reformer, Tower, Chairs, Barrels, and magic circle. Our group equipment classes use a variety of apparatus during each session. These groups are limited to 5 people with one instructor. You will still receive the personalized attention in this small group dynamic but will be challenged by more independence and responsibility.
    • Intermediate/Advanced: As your practice progresses so do the exercises. At the intermediate and advanced levels the pace will increase. The emphasis is on transitioning from exercise to exercise with a continuous precision of flowing movements. For this level you will need a strong understanding of the Pilates method! Not sure you are ready for the next level? Ask your instructor!
All group equipment classes require private instructions prior to attending. This is for safety reasons and quality assurance to all class participants.
    • Private: This is where the journey begins for everyone! Working one-on-one with a qualified experienced instructor you will be taught the Pilates method of ‘Contrology’. You will work on the Reformer, Tower, Chair, Barrels, and Mat.
    • Duet: This is almost like having a Private, but you share the instructor with one other. This is a great way to begin moving towards small group classes.
    • Trio: You and 2 others with one instructor. More people adds energy and challenge to your Pilates experience.

    **If you feel that duet and/or trio sessions may be best for you, please contact the studio for detailed pricing and package offerings.

  • What is Pilates?

    The Pilates method is a repertoire of exercises based on resistance training using your own body and the assistance of springs and specially designed apparatus. Joseph Pilates referred to his work as ‘Contrology’. He described this as a “complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit”.

    Pilates exercises focus on controlled movements of the pelvis, spine and limbs. Through regular practice of these exercises the Pilates method has been proven to correct wrong posture through strengthening and adding flexibility. When strength and subtleness are brought back into a balanced state chronic pains and stress can be alleviated. Pilates offers a mind, body, spirit integration approach to health and well being. This is a total wellness package that anyone can benefit from adding to their life!

    Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.”
    —Joseph Pilates, Return to Life Through Contrology

  • “What surprised me most about Pilates was how I became leaner than I ever was when lifting weights and running. It appears that the movements are small but when done correctly, as taught by the experienced instructors at Body in Motion, the body responds well at every stage of learning the technique.”
