Mat classes are the foundation of both the Pilates and GYROTONIC® systems offered at Pearl Pilates. Meant to be done in a group setting with logical progressions and flow, as a way to gain a deeper understanding of the equipment or an affordable alternative or addition to private sessions, they are also a way to develop a personal practice that can be done at home or on the road.
We keep our classes small in order to honor the systems, give our clients the personal attention necessary to really learn the foundation, perform the exercises correctly and to avoid injury, while still maintaining a level of affordability.
We offer several types of classes, and incorporate the use of small props such as foam rollers, balls, stretchy bands, free weights and BOSU balance balls to challenge or modify the classical exercises.
Please note that our studio has changing rooms, but no showers. Mats and water are provided for all classes.
