Greenwood Pilates - It's like a playground for grown-ups.
Pilates is an energizing workout based on six principles: concentration, control, centering, flowing movement, breath and precision. Pilates will enhance your balance, strength, coordination and flexibility; thereby preparing your body and your mind for the rigorous demands of daily life.
Pilates Equipment Classes are a convenient way to exercise in a group setting (max eight people) with individualized attention. Get a total body workout at an affordable price in 55 minutes (minimum of 3 private lessons required before enrolling in equipment classes).
Advanced Reformer: This class focuses on flow and is taught following the classical progression at a quick pace.
Cycle/Run: Take some time to prepare your body, avoid injury and misery, and feel great on the slopes by focusing on your balance and strengthening your quads, hamstrings, glutes, inner & outer thighs, calves, abs, back and let’s not forget our arms!
Equipment Brunch: Did the weekend get the best of you? This mid-morning class combines the best stretchy and strengthening elements of Pilates. We aim to move your body and sweep away the worries and cobwebs of the week while you “brunch” on all of the equipment.
Mat Class: The mat work is the entry into Pilates and includes numerous exercises of varying difficulty and progression that are designed to stretch, strengthen and improve body alignment. Mat with Props is taught using power circles, balls, Thera bands etc.
Mat Express: A 45-minute classical mat class taught with transitions and flow.
MVe Class: MVe stands for MOVE! The chair is used to challenge balance and strengthen the entire body. The Pilates Chair is smaller and extremely versatile. Joseph Pilates goal was that every home in America would have a Pilates Chair in the living room so you could exercise while watching television. This class is often accompanied with music and has evolved from its wooden counterpart providing a challenging and energizing workout.
Mixed Equipment Class: This class utilizes a mix of equipment: chair, tower, mat, barrels and reformers. Requests are welcome.
Pilates Basics: Did you just finish your intro pack? This class is suitable for beginners, those with restricted movements and those recovering from injuries. Additionally, you will learn the basic restorative reformer exercises and how to operate the reformer, preparing you to take more advanced Pilates classes.
Reformer for Athletes: This class is designed to repeat motions you do while out on the trail, on the bike, in the water or simply put, while in your element. Focus is on strength, awareness, balance and uniform development of the body preventing lopsidedness.
Reformer Class: The most widely known and versatile apparatus. Its unique combination of springs, pulleys, straps and sliding carriage make it an incredibly valuable and useful piece of equipment to strengthen the powerhouse (core) and increase flexibility.
Reformer Flow: The value of the order is such that once you begin this workout, that’s it. There’s no stopping in the middle…or skipping things you don’t like…or doing 1/2 of your exercises…This class is for those who feel compelled to finish what you’ve started.
Run Stretch: This class begins with a running warm up outside (daylight and weather permitting) otherwise on the indoor track followed by running drills, sprints, and intervals. The second part of class is done on the Pilates equipment using the reformer or tower for core activation and STRETCH!
Tower Class: On this apparatus, arms, legs and the trunk are challenged against the various spring tensions and positions achievable on this equipment.
