At The Body Garage we aim to deliver a variety of classes with teachers from diverse teaching styles so that you can get the workout you want with the benefits you need. We have teachers that will give you a more intense power orientated workout, teachers that deliver classes based on learning the techniques and precision of Pilates and teachers that work with you to help in postural awareness, breathing and injury recovery.
Beginner Pilates ::
Beginner Pilates is accessible for everyone. It focuses on developing strength and stability in a sustainable way. This class builds the foundations of integrating breath with movement to increase body awareness and confidence.
Functional Pilates ::
Functional Pilates is core strengthening with a focus on postural awareness for active people to complement their sports activities based on Pilates’s principles and breathing. This class will have slightly more upper body strengthening than the other classes, however, it's not going to be upper body specific. Intermediate level.
Power Pilates ::
For all of our devoted Pilates students who are yearning to kick their practice up a notch, Power Pilates is just for you! These classes will remain true to our roots of safe, mindful movement with a dash of myofascial release, but with a bit more burn and a bit more pace.
Restorative Pilates ::
Focuses on improving balance and flexibility in a slower-paced dedicated way. It assists in rehabilitation from injury or post-surgery recovery. If you are working through back pain, injury, or impingements, this is the class for you.
Therapeutic Pilates ::
These classes begin by weaving together myofascial release and stretching to open and prepare the body for movement. Then the focus moves to developing core strength, flexibility, balance and stamina. Movements are presented at multiple levels which allows students to choose to work at a beginning or intermediate pace. Students learn to be aware of breathing patterns and spinal alignment while engaging the deep muscles of the core. Various props (e.g. thera bands, foam rollers, rings, blocks, mini stability balls, etc.) are incorporated to enhance and intensify the workout. No previous Pilates experience is necessary to join a mat class.
This class offers the perfect blend of Yoga and Pilates, with a focus on full body optimum functioning - strength and stability as well as flexibility and mobility. We will move through standing and seated yoga postures which will be woven together with Pilates movements and principles. This course will increase your body awareness, support you in developing deep core strength and reconnect you to breath-centric movement.
