At Willow, our group classes are small enough so you will still get the individual attention necessary to help you progress in the classes. Each instructor is highly qualified and trained to pay attention to each individual. Class maximum is 5-12, allowing the instructor to offer each client personal attention.
All group classes are 50 minutes to an hour unless otherwise noted.
PILATES TOWER MAT CLASS flows from one exercise to the next, often with transitions that are like exercises themselves. In classical Pilates, a TOWER mat workout is truly that – a workout, and you will feel as though every muscle in your body has been worked. You will perform exercises laying down, sitting, on your side, kneeling and standing. Joseph Pilates put the exercises in a particular order for a reason – to warm your body up in such a way that you are ready for the next exercise. The tower utilizes spring tension to both aid the student as well as to add challenge.
INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED TOWER MAT is a Pilates mat class for clients who are very familiar with Pilates Tower Mat exercises and are looking for an additional challenge.

PILATES REFORMER CLASS is a 45-minute class that uses springs, pulleys, bars and straps to perform over 500 exercises in a variety of positions.

Because of the reformer’s attachments, it is an ideal option for those who need modifications to the mat exercises. It is also easier to increase resistance with the reformer, creating more challenging work for the advanced Pilates client.
