The Pilates intro class will focus on the main principles of Contrology as Joe Pilates taught it. Beginner exercises will be introduced to prepare you for more intermediate positions in subsequent series, with movement-based examples of their significance – you will feel this work!
As a class, we will discover the important role that abdominals play while we work to shrink that waistline. Participants will improve agility by strengthening the antagonist muscles that so often inhibit flexibility gains. Classical Pilates mat work is appropriate for most individuals, regardless of fitness level.
This class is intended for beginner and beg-intermediate clients. A regular yoga practice is not requisite for participation!

After practice, you will emerge feeling deeply relaxed and centered. Research has shown that Yoga Nidra is an important complement to therapy and medical treatment for stress and anxiety related illnesses.
All levels are welcome.
An essential pose of vinyasa yoga, chaturanga is actually incredibly advanced and complex. Chaturanga dandasana has dubbed a “shoulder shredder” because even slightly sloppy form, over and over, class after class, does an unfortunate number on your tendons and muscles (rotator cuff, pecs and biceps) as well as the shoulder joint itself.
Consider this workshop a guiding beacon that will keep you healthy, happy and safe on the yoga mat for years to come.
Chaturanga clinic is here for you! Receive:
- Personalized feedback on your Chaturanga dandasana
- Steps to refine and build strength toward full, sustainable chaturanga
- Ramped up quality of transitions into and out of chaturanga
- Options for modifying the pose without dumbing it down (or losing out on strength building)
We will also playfully explore the jumpback from crow and uttanasana, and how to decide when you are ready.
Attendees get a PDF summary of some of the strength-building techniques and modifications that we practice together. (So you can continue improving your chaturanga form afterward).
