Pilates is an exercise system focusing on breathing, postural alignment, balance, and core control. This 60 minute class will lead participants through a series of activities in multiple positions focusing on the above principles. Class is generally performed without shoes. You will need a mat, towel, or carpeted surface, and may want an additional vertically-rolled towel or foam roller for additional challenges offered by the instructor during some of the offered class times.
