Get Started- with Apparatus Classes


Reformer Classes are low impact and suitable for any age or fitness level. 

It's a unique and versatile workout that takes your body out of its comfort zone, which is where you will start to see change happen.

You know when you have that nagging internal dialogue about going to the gym? You feel as if you should, but the atmosphere doesn't resonate with you and traditional gym routines leave your muscles protesting, and your joints slightly strained?  It's an obligation you fulfill, relieved and happy only by the sense of accomplishment when you check off that workout from your to do list. 

We get it. And that's why we love and do Pilates.

After just one session, you'll be amazed by the difference. The Reformer provides resistance as you push or pull against the springs, which helps to build strength, improve flexibility, and enhance your core stability. It's a low-impact workout that focuses on precise and controlled movements, creating a sense of balance and alignment within your body. The movements will feel like what your body has been craving. You'll feel great, in both mind and body.

Check It Out:

  • We have a variety of Reformer classes for every level.
  • Sign up week to week and try out different classes and teachers.
  • Class packages expire in 1 year, giving you plenty of time to explore all your options.

I realize how therapeutic the movements on the reformer are for regaining core strength in my aging body. Also, the studio is spacious enough for me to feel comfortable. Lastly, the instructor, Libby, was very encouraging!

Smiles & Success: Client Reviews That Say It All:

I have done many different types of exercise over the years, but always felt as though something was missing from my practice.  Finding pilates and The Pilates Studio in Hadley changed that in many ways. I have become obsessed with pilates and am proof that it can get you stronger, leaner, and more balanced.
All of the instructors here are knowledgeable and make you feel welcome and comfortable.  This is a wonderful place to start if you've never tried pilates before, or the best studio to try if you've done pilates in the past.  You'll be happy you did!

Katrina and team are superb from every aspect of what one expects of a pilates studio...but they go much beyond that. As a PhD in anatomy and neurobiology, I am struck by the extent of knowledge and understanding Katrina has about the mechanics, motion, and range of motion of muscle, fascia, and tendons throughout the entire body - to a greater degree than many of the physical therapists, and medical students I have trained over my career. She and her team are a hidden gem.

Of the many benefits to being a regular at The Pilates Studio, the most surprising is that after a couple of years, my spine unfurled to the point that my height now measures an inch taller in my fifties! Polestar Pilates is the best method I have found for getting rid of aches and pains and feeling strong and balanced. All of the instructors here are very gifted and helpful.
