What the Wall Can Teach Us (Int)

The whole reason we do Pilates is so we can do what we love in the world! And much of that is upright! So let’s start and end of the wall and apply the wall to a strong intermediate mat class.

Back to Basics Mat (Foundational-Int)

It all starts with a stable pelvis! so let’s get Back to the Basics. We’ll add some challenges to that Pelvis with some fun variations on a theme, too! You’ll be thankful the class is (mostly) beginner!

Magic Circle Mat

Join a steady paced Intermediate level magic circle mat class with the right balance of stretch, strength and control. Ends with standing magic circle exercises. Do only what works for you and your body please!

Arm Weights Foundational 1

Foundational arm weights but they’re not that easy!! Work your entire body with these little 2 lb weights! You’ll ask for more, I’m sure,!

Advanced Classical Mat

Buckle your seatbelt! We do many of Joe’s advanced mat exercises here. If you’re looking for a challenging workout, this is it. PLEASE, as always, only do what works for you physically. If you need to use a different variation for an exercise, please do so or leave it out.

Arm Weights Foundational 2

ArmweightsFoundational1 (no wall) Here are some arm weight exercises to get you ready for summer! Biceps I, II and III, Boxing, Sparklers, Zipper, Hug and Chest Expansion. They’ll get you ready to walk into the world!

Foundational Magic Circle

Find your lift and your center with this Foundational Magic Circle mat class. Use the Magic Circle to find your inner thighs, your outer thighs, and especially your arm and back connection.

Arm Weight Connections (Int/Adv)

Using arm weights to strengthen the arm movements in each of the foundational and intermediate exercises. The weights are light (2lbs) but don’t underestimate their impact!

Magic Circle Mat (Foundational)

Get stronger with this short and to the point Foundational mat class. The Magic Circle is a terrific tool for strength and can be used for all the exercises. Combine this with a short standing (or wall) magic circle for a great ending, too!

Open your Chest Towel Mat

Open your chest with a hand towel! Using the towel reminds us to engage the shoulders down the back while we are working through this Foundational progression.

“Sliding” into 2020 (Strong Int)

This one is fun! We do a reformer on the mat AND a mat series using furniture sliders (or paper plates or a towel ). The exercises are mostly beginner but trust me, this workout won’t feel like it!!
