New to Pilates? New students need to start with PHC Basics.
This class is held every other Saturday at noon.
This class will focus on teaching you the foundations of Pilates and how to navigate the Reformer. We work on posture, alignment, strength, flexibility and balance. But please do not mistake this class for easy! We offer this class to give our students a safe, positive and supportive environment to learn from us. If you are brand new to Pilates or PHC or it’s been a while since you’ve been on a Reformer, this class is required. This is a FIRM policy.
Core: Level 1
This class is the “CORE” of what we do at PHC. This class is suitable for all levels after the Basics class. We take the Pilates foundations and add our own personal flavor to make each class different and fun. Every Core 1 class is aimed at building overall strength, increasing core/pelvic stability and improving mobility, balance and flexibility. We will use the Reformer, Tower, Exo chair, Arc, Rollers and other props to give you a legit ass kicking. We offer modifications for each level of student to ensure that everyone is challenged and all bodies get what they need.
Burn: Level 1
Want to get more of a caloric burn in your Pilates practice? Try Jumpboard! This class combines the strengthening benefits of traditional Pilates with the addition of cardio intervals on the Jumpboard. The Jumpboard provides a non-weight bearing way to do cardio and it burns the legs and booty like nothing else! This class increases muscular endurance and builds the supportive muscles around the ankle, knees, hips and low back. You will sweat- and we will yell at you- nicely of course. All levels welcome but we do recommend taking 4-6 Core classes prior to trying Burn.
Our Roller and Ball workshops have finally become their own class! Combining stretching and various techniques using foam rollers and balls, we can offer therapy and relief to the connective tissues, known as fascia. We will also help alleviate pain from the stresses placed on your body in your day-to-day activities. This class gently rehydrates connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system, reduces inflammation, decompresses the neck and low back, mobilizes joints and increases flexibility. And it feels damn good too.
Core: Level 1.5 and 2
Once you have built up your strength, flexibility and coordination through a regular Pilates practice then you could be ready for Core 1.5 or 2. If you are able to move through our Core 1 moves with confidence then it might be time to challenge yourself at a higher level. Intermediate and Advanced Pilates does put a lot of work into the wrists, knees and back so anyone with pre-existing issues would not enjoy this class. (Think planks, balance work and high lunges on the reformer…) This class is the more fancy shit you see on IG that most people associate Pilates with.
This class is recommended for people with limited mobility, are shy/insecure about movement or are at a sexy, older age that needs a more gentle pace. It is perfect for those who may not be able to comfortably lie down flat or get back up from the floor easily. You will be doing Pilates exercises using props such as: resistance bands and balls as well as some work on the Reformer and other apparatus. The goal of this class is to improve overall stability, mobility, core strength and balance. We will adapt exercises and suggest appropriate options, if needed. This class is open to all bodies, without major aches or pains that should be addressed in private sessions, but is specifically for those who cannot attend our Core classes.
Private and Duet Sessions
Classes not what you want or need? Take a private one on one session with us. Our privates are designed for students who have never been good at fitness, are deconditioned, healing an injury or have a heavy workload and want a quieter start. We can also help transition you out of your PT after surgeries or illness.
What about bringing a friend? The best of both worlds. Duet sessions are just 2 students- so you get the energy of a class but the personal attention of a private. This is a great way to get focused Pilates time and also make it more economical.
Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move freely in. Pants that are past the knee are recommended, and a shirt or tank top is required.
GRIPPY OR BARRE SOCKS ARE REQUIRED.
We require that you bring your smile, bring your attitude and come on time!
In order to best keep the focus on our own bodies during the session, Pilates Heartcore is a kid-free zone.
CANCELLATIONS: 24 hour notice is required for a cancellation or reschedule. If you are unable to cancel within 24 hours or do not show up for your class or appointment, you will be charged for that session. On all memberships, please note that any no-shows or cancellations made after the 24 hour cancellation policy cut-off will be charged a $20 fee if abused. We consider abuse more than 2 classes per month where a reformer sat empty.
Pilates Heartcore reserves the right to determine what level class you are permitted to attend. We offer Basics to Advanced. Pilates is cumulative and going into classes you are not ready for can cause an injury. Muscular strength and a strong understanding of your Pilates practice will determine when you can advance into higher level classes. We work with you and see your progress. It is not the same as going to a higher level cardio or typical fitness class. Please trust the process.
