Creating awareness of the body and mind through movement and breath, will be a lasting experience for all your senses. Leave your day at the door and allow yourself some quality time.


Springboard classes (SPRINGS level 1 and level 2)

What is a Springboard? A springboard is a 20-inch wide wooden board mounted to the wall with eyebolts attached for you to fasten springs to.

We have springs of several lengths and resistances. A great option of the springboard is the ability to change the spring tension to suit each client and each exercise. The springboard class is a functional workout and works the entire body. Each limb works independently, carrying its own weight. You will feel the difference in each side of your body immediately and you will learn how to coordinate the differences to create whole body movement. The springs are challenging; you will gain strength, balance, and coordination, while increasing flexibility. A typical springboard class will incorporate some Pilates mat work and fundamentals with the springboard exercises.
There is a LIMIT OF 8 PARTICIPANTS, reservations are suggested.

SPRINGS LEVEL 1

Gain an in-depth understanding of how your body moves and how Pilates facilitates health mobility. A combination of spring resistance focusing on details and fundamental themes so you gain more out of the Pilates practice.

SPRINGS LEVEL 2

Now that you are familiar with the exercises, the class will move at an accelerated pace with more standing exercises and repetitions. The resistance will be heavier and we will incorporate some cardio. You will definitely sweat and create shaking muscles!

OOV (Out Of Vocabulary)

The OOV is a rain drop shaped apparatus. It cradles the natural curves of the spine.

Through slow motion lengthening, the OOV refines balance, releases tension around the joints, and opens up the hips, shoulders, and face. The unbalanced nature of the OOV engages the brain, supports you yet will only allow correct movement. After an OOV class you will function better and move more confidently. This is an excellent program for dressage and leisure horseback riding.

Patty is trained to use the OOV in Pilates and Fitness.
