Pilates for balance and fall prevention.
Over this six week series you will progressively challenge your balance & coordination, as well as strengthen & condition muscles that promote proper gait.
Pilates for Riders
Over the six week series you'll learn ways to improve posture in the saddle, strengthen legs & abdominals and increase hip mobility.
Your instructor will introduce you to all the parts and pieces of the Reformer and teach you exercises that will leave you completely confident to sign up for any of our regular weekly Reformer and/or Reformer/Tower classes.
I loved the "more than just the core" reformer class. It is very similar to Kristy's standard reformer classes but she gives very detailed cue-ing around the extra core moves she introduces to the class. As with all of Kristy's classes, you are super clear about how to do each part of each move. Yes, it's intense, but let's get real: that's what you are signing up for!! A strong core!! When it's over, you feel tight as a drum and very proud. I'd recommend this class to anyone who enjoys Kristy's reformer classes, or if you are new to the studio, know that we had two new students the day I took the class and they did great!
The next day I felt great, like a car after a tuneup. That surprised me, because I've lifted weights with a trainer before where I couldn't lift my hands to wash my hair in the shower for the whole week following my workout. This isn't that.
Can't wait for next week!
Since doing Pilates I've definitely noticed that in the winter, when there's ice, or anytime that I am walking down a dewy-wet grassy hill (can you tell that I own dogs?) I've been much more secure. I can slip slightly and then more or less immediately regain my balance and stay upright.
Katrina is simply wonderful. Her knowledge of Pilates and ability to teach us how to strengthen and care for our bodies is
remarkable. She’s helped me tremendously in the last four years. I was so concerned about working through my issues but I’ve trusted her from the beginning and always been happy with the results. She is a gem!
