Mat Class

We offer mat classes in Pilates, as well as Pilates & Yoga combo classes. Mat classes are a solid workout and a safe, effective way to become more fit and flexible. Plus, they’re a great option for maintaining a consistent movement practice with our convenient lunchtime, evening and Saturday morning schedule. Check our class schedule for days and times! (Please note: Class schedule is subject to change without notice)

All of our mat classes are drop-in and open to all levels — instructors offer modifications for those who are beginning and variations for more advanced students. In this way, we can have all levels in class. If you have any injuries or movement limitations, we highly recommend taking private sessions for assessment and guidance before taking mat class.
