The truth is, the Pilates classical repertoire can be gruelling, complicated and demotivating. And the exercises can build tension and strain (especially in the lower back and neck). We want to change that! Based on the principles of biomechanics and the pedagogical model from our programs for teachers and movement educators, these classes give you a glimpse at the technical considerations and steps to make the movements flow with ease and power.
We publish the day and time of these pop-ups a few weeks in advance so check back often for updates, or be sure to add your name to one of our email mailing lists so that we can send you a reminder.

Not everyone relishes the idea of doing many reps of Leg Pull Front Support. It’s a challenging exercise that requires support from the entire body and lots of weight-bearing on the wrists. Not only do you need strength, but also balance as you lift one leg off the ground while holding the plank position. The key to accurate execution is connecting from head to toe, so the effort is evenly distributed throughout the body. The goal in this class is to help you figure out how close you can get to the full version of Leg Pull Front Support while feeling in control of your movements and strain-free.
