Intro to Pilates Reformer
Pilates is a system of exercise and movement that is designed to increase strength, flexibility, and balance. It integrates breath and movement within proper body mechanics to increase awareness, and use all of the muscles of the body. This class will teach the fundamentals and basics of a Pilates Reformer work out. Grippy socks are recommended but not required. This class is formatted for beginners.
Pilates Reformer

Pilates Reformer uses the reformer apparatus allowing for greater resistance and support from the straps and springs. Students will use the straps on their hands and feet for support and added resistance throughout various Pilates exercises. Various props may be used in classes including the short and long box, Pilates chair, jumpboard, and tower. This class is suitable for all levels with modifications available to regress and progress movements to accommodate each student. 

Pilates Tower

In Pilates tower classes, a mat is laid over the reformer to flatten the entire carriage. In this class, there is no movement on the machine and students will use the tower for all exercises. Straps will be used on the hands and feet in addition to exercises using the roll down and push through bars. This class is suitable for all levels and modifications available to regress and progress movements to accommodate each student.

Pilates Mat

Pilates Mat will take you through the classical mat sequence ranging from beginning to intermediate level focusing on the principles and fundamentals of Pilates. This is a great class to build core strength, flexibility, coordination, and a connection to mind, body and spirit.  We will use various props including pilates ball, stability ball, straps, blankets, pilates ring, and a weighted bar to help assist and go deeper into your practice. Mat work is a great addition to reformer and offers a greater challenge by using your own body weight in the movements. 

TRX Pilates

TRX is a suspension trainer that hangs from the ceiling at a single anchor point. It creates instability and uses gravity as your resistance. This requires a high level of core activation and control. The straps give instant feedback to help identify imbalances in the body. The TRX is great for all levels because you can adjust your own level of difficulty by adjusting your body, hands, and feet. TRX is a great compliment to the Pilates mat repertoire because it gives many variations and an additional challenge. In this class you will see many of the same exercises that you would perform on the mat or the reformer but with a fun variation.

Christina’s classes are more traditionally based with a contemporary style to provide a healthy balance to meet students’ needs. She wants her students to have a robust class filled with mindful, integrated movement. She hopes that they experience a solid class so that when they walk away they feel challenged and supported. Christina has a long history of ballet and modern dance experience dating back to the 1980s. During her training as a dancer, Pilates mat was frequently used as a warm up. She started taking Pilates reformer classes at White Cloud studios multiple times a week and wanted more. She received her certification in 2005. Christina is a third generation instructor certified through Joseph Pilates.

Christina loves everything about Pilates, from the history to the transformative stories. People can use it for reformative work, healing from an injury, balancing out their body’s needs, or for a supplemental workout along side any other physical practice. You can be a total beginner or a highly trained athlete and you will feel the benefits from Pilates. What she loves most is that within a matter of one or two classes you begin to feel results, and then shortly thereafter you start to see the results of the work you have put in. Understanding body mechanics and awareness creates a healthy mind and body. It is one of the fastest and safest workouts and once you get hooked on the reformer, you want more.
