Through REGISTERED PILATES CLASSES, our goal is to teach you how to use your body more efficiently and to maximize your movements for optimal results. Clients learn to use breath and body positioning to strengthen their abdominal, lower back, inner/outer thighs, shoulders, arms and buttocks. Classes are good for people who enjoy:
Our Pilates classes work with a leveled system, so if you are new to Pilates you will start at an Introductory level and progress, as your skills and strength increase, to an Essential and then Intermediate I, II and III. Our classes are small and progressive so clients see results because they are constantly moving forward and being challenged to go further with the exercises. We offer over 60 Pilates classes a week to continually challenge all ranges of fitness levels. A more advanced equipment class could involve work on the Stability Chairs, Reformers, Barre, or TRX Suspension System. Taught by certified instructors, the Pilates North philosophy is to provide personalized attention to our clients ensuring their fitness goals are being met in a safe and fun environment.
Sixty Studio Classes
A great way to get motivated with like-minded people. Clients work in small groups of no more than 9 people. You will be led through a logical progression of the Pilates exercises. Continuous emphasis on body positions and core stabilization will ensure proper execution of the exercises and therefore maximum results from the movements.
Customize your own schedule with your own group. Working with a certified instructor, private groups can be customized to your specific needs and goals. The classes can incorporate Reformer, Chair, Barre and TRX . Once the basic principles are learned, a private group can “Body Target” trouble areas and focus on your group’s specific needs.
Too busy to leave the office? We’ll come to you! Get a group of 6-10 people together and we will come to your office. Classes will be tailored to your timing. Offsite Pilates programs can incorporate Mat, Ball, Theraband, Circle and other small prop work. Great for people stretched for time and businesses that are looking to promote well-being in the workplace.
I LOVE my Pilates classes. I look forward to the class every week. I am often tired and stressed when I get to the class after working all day and I feel absolutely wonderful when I have finished. Lisa is an amazing instructor and I can really feel how much stronger I have become. I like being challenged and Lisa’s class does that. The studio itself is spotless and I can really see how much pride is taken with the studio as everything…(more)
Pilates makes me feel energized. As my energy levels go up, my waist gets smaller and clothes fit better. I love how my body is increasingly challenged physically as well as the mind-body connection such challenges demand. Class sizes are ideal, and I enjoy the company of the instructors and my fellow Pilates enthusiasts. An extra bonus–I get quality “mummy & me” time…(more)
Pilates North has done so much for me since I began classes in the summer of 2007. At the time I was living an incredibly unhealthy lifestyle, with a focus on calorie counting instead of strengthening my body. Since classes began, I have felt my core muscles strengthen to an invariable degree, which helped me achieve new goals in both my equestrian and acrobatic endeavors. There is also an overwhelming sense of calm from the time I walk…(more)
