This flowing class combines elements of Pilates, yoga and work at the barre to give you a complete workout. We use resistance created by a Flexband to mimic some of the repertoire done on the specialized Pilates equipment. A class emphasizing breath and movement set to music feels like Pilates but delivers SO MUCH MORE!
