Gentle Pilates offers private session and group classes, in our Novi studio. In a Private sessions, you experience a 55-minute session (30 minute sessions are also available) tailored to your body’s level and desired focus. Our group classes are 55 minutes, and include a variety of levels.
Private Pilates Sessions
In a Private Pilates session, you experience a 55-minute session tailored to your body’s level and desired focus on Pilates mat and equipment: the Reformer, Wunda Chair and BioCored. You will also learn your body like never before through the tutelage of your own certified Pilates trainer that works with you for quick results.
With a private session you book a time that works in your schedule rather than sticking to a pre-set class schedule–we recommend 30 minute classes to start for those with fibromyalgia. A Pilates instructor’s trained eye is crucial for proper form and ultimate results. The instructor ensures that it never gets boring by introducing something new in variations, props, equipment and constant motivation.
Bone Builders Class
10 million Americans over the age of 50 have Osteoporosis, a dangerous thinning of the bones. Research shows that regular exercise can prevent and even reverse the effects of osteoporosis. Bone Builders class is a program designed to target those at risk of osteoporosis and help them build healthy bones. Please check our schedule for class day and times.
Our Gentle Pilates class consists of movements done in a slow and controlled manner with quality verses quantity, reducing the possibility of over working and causing pain. The emphasis on a full breath will benefit a fibromyalgia patient by reducing their stress level. Gentle Pilates allows the client to reap the benefits of exercise without the exhaustion of a typical strength routine. Added bonus, it is fun!!
What is MELT?
The MELT method is a simple self treatment where we use small balls and a soft foam roller to hydrate your connective tissue, rebalance your nervous system and help you prevent, reduce and even eliminate chronic pain. Strong and fit does not have to mean stiff an sore. Aging does not have to mean aching. The results are phenomenal! Anyone can do it, no matter what age or state of health. You feel results after the first session.
When you body is aligned, you have less compression, less inflammation and less pain. Adding in MELT to a healthy diet and regular exercise can make lasting positive changes so you can continue being active without pain.
I teach one-on-one and group sessions in MELT . I am happy to do private MELT intro workshops for groups of up to 15 and love to combine the two methods for an excellent balanced workout that will show results without the pain.
