Friday Happy Hour Pilates
Like a ball, roll smoothly into your weekend with Friday Happy Hour Pilates. We’ll focus on the fundamentals of mat work, and add challenge to this full-body workout with props such as foam rollers, small weights, flex bands, magic circles and more. After this workout, you’ll be recharged down to your core, so can enjoy your weekend to the fullest. Open to all levels.
Class will also include a “Monthly Cocktail” where, each month, we focus on a special topic or theme from the original mat repertoire as part of a full-body workout.
April’s Monthly Cocktail: Inversions. The Rollover is the third exercise in Joe Pilates’s Return to Life. It’s a challenging exercise, that is often skipped in mat classes. This month, we’ll spend some time prepping, developing and improving this exercise, along with working on subsequent exercises that build on it: Corkscrew, Scissors, Bicycle; and if we’re feeling ambitious: Jackknife, Boomerang, and maybe some day, Control Balance.
$20 for drop-ins.
Class cards available: 5 classes for $90, 10 classes for $150.
1211 NW Glisan St., Suite 207
