Signature Pilates

yoga

Pilates is a method of conditioning developed more than 90 years ago. It is a unique method of exercise that has numerous benefits. It uses resistance and your body’s weight to increase strength, lengthen muscles, increase flexibility and strengthen your core. Our knowledgeable team of PMA-recognized instructors will guide your session based on your fitness level and goals. The J houses two fully-equipped studios to better offer both private and group sessions at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Members may schedule a free Pilates consultation, so we hope to see you soon.

The small group format emphasizes rhythmic, fluid movements, which participants perform in unison. Instructors guide the group as each session builds upon the previous, challenging the group and maximizing results. In order to participate in a small group, you must have had three previous Private Pilates sessions, or participated in the Introduction to Pilates Class. This ensures your safety and builds an understanding of the essential principles and creates a strong foundation.
