Pilates is an exercise system that helps to build strength and flexibility in the body by emphasizing the use of your core. Lengthening from a strong center helps to develop toned muscles without bulk. Pilates promotes a strong mind-body connection, perfect if you enjoy yoga but need to change up your core exercises.

Series starts September 9th and runs through September 30th on Thursdays, 6:00-7:00pm. Register here.

Offered the 2nd Sunday of every month. $25/per person and pre-registration is required.
