At Soul Movement, you will find a friendly and compassionate atmosphere. Your success is our primary focus. Our instructors are experienced in all facets of Pilates and are attentive to your personal needs. Our classes are rooted in the Classical Method but incorporate contemporary movements and variations as well, always keeping it fresh and challenging!
Private lessons are the most effective way to learn, practice and perfect your Pilates performance. You will receive undivided attention from your instructor who will develop a customized program addressing your specific goals to provide optimum results. Lessons will be conducted in a private setting on the Reformer and may include the EXO Chair, mat, barre or TRX depending on your specific needs and desires. Private instruction is ideal for learning the fundamentals of Pilates, progressing your practice, or for those who need to focus on a previous injury or special conditions.
All the benefits of a Private session, but shared with a partner. Both participants should be of a similar ability level.
Unsure where you fit? Speak with one of our instructors and they will guide you to the class that is right for you. We want everyone to be successful and have the ability to benefit from every class!
SMALL GROUP CLASSES
A great way for students to experience the benefits of the Reformer within a group environment! Classes will never exceed 5 participants, so you can be assured you will still receive the personal attention and instruction you deserve. We offer classes for all ability levels, so you can always find the right fit for you!
Group classes are not ideal for those with injuries or significant physical limitations.
