Group Exercise Classes
S.T.A.R. Pilates is committed to providing high quality group exercise classes that both challenge and respect the body. While teaching in a group environment, our instructors maintain awareness of individual needs and conditions. Modifications of exercises are made to suit individuals of different levels.
Class Sizes Are Limited – Reservations Are Required!
This workout involves Pilates exercises that are done while lying or sitting on mat, utilizing one’s own body weight for resistance. The total body workout strengthens the core, tones the hips and thighs, and flattens the abs. Small equipment may be added for additional resistance training.
This class is MAT CLASS with the addition of small equipment. Large physioballs, small 9″ balls, Pilates rings, exercise bands and small weights can be layered into class challenging muscles with added resistance.
Group Reformer Classes
We offer Foundational Group Reformer for those who are new to Pilates and for those who have done Pilates on and off and could use a brush up. ** If you have not been on a reformer we require a private session prior to attending class. Please call for details.**
Intermediate Group Reformer is for participants that are familiar with the machine, terminology, exercises and have body awareness of themselves.
Advanced Group Reformer is for those extremely experienced on the reformer and can follow multiple directions at once.
Group Chair Classes
Prior Pilates experience is mandatory to join this class.
Class utilizes Pilates equipment known as the Stability Chair as well as bands, balls, Pilates rings and free weights. The major difference between Chair & Reformer is that there’s more vertical work than reformer (standing and sitting vs. laying down) and more balance work, hence the prior Pilates necessity.
The M.E.L.T. Method is a revolutionary approach to longevity focused on our connective tissue and neurological systems. It can offer positive changes such as improvement in the lower back, greater neck range of motion and better mobility in the hip and shoulder girdle. Foot problems can also be alleviated, most notably plantar fasciitis, but even peripheral neuropathy. Arthritic hands often feel better after utilizing the M.E.L.T. Method. The class utilizes specialized soft foam rollers and MELT balls on the hands and feet.
Our barre class combines the grace and flexibility of dance with the strength and sculpting of Pilates to give you a long, strong, and lean physique. The upper body section creates defined shoulders and arms and a beautiful back. The barre segment employs movements to lift and tighten trouble spots like the glutes, hips, and thighs. The core program targets the deep abdominal muscles to help chisel your midsection.
This is an open level class with 3 levels of modifications that will be given to challenge each practitioner at their level. It is a combination of Yoga and Pilates techniques including breath work, stretching and strengthening resulting in improved balance, focus and flexibility.
Keep On Movin'
You’ll be encouraged, through guided instruction, to explore your own creativity through playful, expressive movements accompanied by a variety of musical styles.
The first part of class will begin with a seated warm up and then progress to standing and travelling movements. The instructor can adapt to any student’s physical restrictions. Students can choose to remain seated and participate in the entire class.
It’s fun and healthy, both physically and emotionally. Come have fun!
