Fitness & Pilates Workshops
Workshops to get you started and keep you going!
Workshops are a great option to motivate you and help you learn to work out correctly. Often an entry point when you are new or returning to a workout routine, workshops are taught by certified fitness and Pilates instructors, and will help you progress and feel confident. Workshops are generally four to six weeks in length. Attending regularly for a set period of time will motivate you and hold you accountable.

Think Pilates Reformer 101!
It’s easy to be intimidated by the equipment in a Pilates studio. The Pilates reformer makes a dramatic impression when you first see one, but once you get started, and continue over a period of time, it will make an even more dramatic change in your body. You will feel the difference!
If your hesitation has been how to use the Pilates machine (reformer) correctly, or how to get started when it looks so challenging, this workshop is your answer!

Babywearing Barre Fitness Workout For New Moms (or dads!)
This is a “Mommy & Me” workout for new moms and their babies! But we welcome anyone wearing a baby, as well as those expecting one!
The intent of the workshop is to give you a gentle workout while spending time with your baby! Bring your baby and your baby carrier and head to the ballet barre for a 45-minute barre workout that offers a blend of conditioning with resistance bands and barre fitness principles that will help you focus on your overall health and wellness. Moms (or dads, grandparents, etc.) enjoy a low-impact toning workout while babies experience movement, rocking motions, soothing music, and added one-on-one time. Connect with your body and connect with your baby!
This Babywearing Barre workout is great for all fitness levels. Start where you are and move how you can. Expectant moms who want to get a jump on their postpartum conditioning are welcome! (Check with your doctor about participating in a prenatal workout.)
Bring a comfortable and secure baby carrier with support for baby and mom. Wear comfortable workout clothing, ballet shoes or sneakers, and bring a water bottle.
