Class Descriptions

At Touchstone we offer Private, Semi-Private and small Group Classes.

Private Sessions:

Private Sessions arWylie_LisaPellow_WOW_156e 50 minute, one-on-one sessions with an Instructor (Lisa or Heather). The individual one-on-one attention teaches the client to safely discover and properly engage their Powerhouse as well as learn the basics under the close surpervision of a properly trained and certified Romana’s Pilates instructor. Not only will the client learn the mat work fundamentals but he will also have the opportunity to work on all of the apparatus. It is strongly recommended that a client complete at least 5 Private Sessions prior to joining a Group Class. We find that the client is better able to follow, enjoy and get the best workout in a group class after having completed at least 5 Private Sessions.

Semi-Private and Equipment Sessions:

Semi-private sessions are available to those who are experienced and/or have completed at least 5 private sessions to ensure safety, proper core strength, solid equipment knowledge, and to allow for the most dynamic flow. It is preferred that each participant be at the same level.

Small Group Mat Classes:

Mat 1/2 – A beginner class focusing on alignment, form and the six Pilates principles: ConcenWylie_LisaPellow_WOW_035tration, Control, Centering, Precision, Breath, and Flow. Intermediate exercises added based on class progression.

Mat 2/3 – An intermediate class that includes specific advanced exercises depending on the clients progress. A full understanding of the intermediate mat is required to take this class.

Group class policy

Class size limited to 10 people. All classes are 45 minutes in length. Registration is required for group classes to ensure availability. Class schedule is subject to change.

The challenge with group classes is how to give clients the individual attention that leads to the greatest improvement in their bodies. The best way to do this is to strongly suggest that beginning students complete at least five private sessions before participating in a group class. This one-on-one attention enables us to modify the exercises to fit your body’s particular needs as you learn the exercises properly and safely. We offer a five-session Introductory package at a discounted price to enable students to attend private sessions before partaking in group classes.
