  • I HAVE AN INJURY, WHAT CLASS SHOULD I JOIN?
    Group Classes and Injury Considerations We believe in the power of collective movement to inspire and elevate, yet we understand that each individual's journey is unique. Participating in a group class with an injury requires careful consideration. While our group classes are designed to foster a sense of togetherness, they might not always provide the tailored attention necessary to accommodate injuries effectively. For this reason, we recommend that you prioritize your recovery and well-being by refraining from joining group classes until your injury has been adequately addressed and healed. Private 1:1 Sessions with Melanie: Due to the nature of our group classes, we suggest that you begin with private one-on-one sessions with Melanie. This personalized guidance will help you establish appropriate modifications and techniques tailored to your injury. Melanie will assist you in working through your limitations before transitioning to group classes. Confidence in Modifications: If you're confident in your ability to adapt exercises to accommodate your injury, you're welcome to join our group classes. However, please keep in mind that we provide limited hands-on corrections during these sessions. Your safety is our top priority. By starting with private sessions and gradually transitioning to group classes, you'll be better equipped to engage in our classes confidently and safely. Remember, we're here to support your journey toward a healthier and stronger you. Clients should consider booking a private session first if they are dealing with any of the following injuries or conditions: Recent Injuries: Injuries sustained within the past few weeks, such as sprains, strains, or minor fractures. Chronic Pain: Persistent discomfort or pain that has been present for an extended period. Back Issues: Conditions like herniated discs, sciatica, or chronic back pain. Joint Problems: Joint-related issues like arthritis, bursitis, or tendonitis. Post-Surgery: Individuals recovering from recent surgical procedures or medical interventions. Rehabilitation: People undergoing physical therapy or rehabilitation for a specific injury. Cardiovascular Conditions: Heart-related conditions that require specialized exercise modifications. Orthopedic Concerns: Bone-related conditions or limitations, such as fractures or osteoporosis. Neurological Conditions: Nervous system disorders that affect movement and coordination. Pregnancy: Expecting mothers who need tailored exercises to accommodate their changing bodies. Balance and Stability Issues: Individuals with balance disorders or concerns about stability. Pre-existing Conditions: Any medical condition that might require special attention during exercise.
  • WHAT PROPS DO YOU USE?

These props add an extra element of challenge, fun, and variety to our classes. So get ready to embrace the magic and prop up for an unforgettable Pilates experience!
  • WHY ONLY MAT CLASSES? DON'T YOU BELIEVE IN THE REFORMER?
    Ah, the million-dollar question! While we absolutely believe in the power of Pilates equipment, our studio has chosen to focus exclusively on mat classes. Both Mel and Sharon are highly trained on all pieces of Pilates equipment and have extensive experience working with clients in a fully equipped studio environment. They hold certifications with The Pilates Center from Boulder, CO, ensuring their expertise and knowledge in utilizing Pilates equipment to its fullest potential. We understand that some clients may have a desire to explore equipment-based Pilates. That's why our instructor Mel has a private studio at her home where she can introduce you to the wonders of Pilates equipment. This offers a unique opportunity for those who are interested in experiencing the benefits of working with apparatus such as the reformer, Cadillac, or chair. So, if you're craving some equipment action and want to dive deeper into the world of Pilates apparatus, we encourage you to reach out to Mel for private sessions in her fully equipped home studio. She will provide personalized instruction, tailoring the sessions to your individual needs and goals. In the meantime, at our mat-focused studio, we're dedicated to delivering exceptional mat Pilates classes that emphasize core strength, flexibility, and mind-body connection. Please note that Sharon is not currently taking any private clients.
  • DO I NEED ANY PRIOR EXPERIENCE TO ATTEND A CLASS?
    No prior experience is required to join our classes. Our instructors cater to participants of all skill levels, including beginners, intermediate, and advanced practitioners. Whether you're new to Pilates or have been practicing for years, our classes are designed to accommodate everyone's needs.
  • CAN I BOOK A 1:1 PRIVATE SESSION?
    Our studio currently offers group classes only. If you are looking for 1:1 private sessions, you can reach out to Mel, who has a fully equipped Pilates studio in her home. Please note that Sharon is not taking private classes at this time.
  • DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE EVENTS, SUCH AS BIRTHDAY PARTIES OR BRIDAL PARTIES?
    Absolutely! We love hosting special occasions and celebrations at our studio. Whether it's a birthday gathering, a bachelorette party, or any other milestone event, we're thrilled to create a unique Pilates experience for you and your guests.
  • WHAT IS BREATHWORK?
    Ah, breathwork, the art of conscious breathing! While our main focus is Pilates, we understand the profound impact that breathwork can have on overall well-being. That's why we offer dedicated breathwork classes outside of Pilates. Breathwork sessions are all about unlocking the power of your breath to release tension and promote relaxation in the body. By engaging in specific breathing techniques, you can tap into a state of deep calmness, reduce stress, and enhance your mind-body connection. We believe in providing a holistic approach to wellness, and breathwork perfectly complements the physical benefits of Pilates. It's an opportunity for our community to explore different facets of self-care and mindfulness. So, if you're ready to dive into the world of conscious breathing and experience the incredible release and relaxation it brings, join our breathwork classes and let your breath be your guide to inner peace and harmony.
  • WHAT IS A MINI RETREAT?

During these mini retreats, you can expect a carefully curated combination of Pilates sessions, where you'll engage your body and mind in strengthening and stretching exercises.

To elevate the experience, we offer access to a sauna, where you can sweat out toxins, relax your muscles, and promote overall well-being. And to truly invigorate your senses, immerse yourself in the refreshing cold plunge, which provides a stimulating contrast and leaves you feeling revitalized.
