Pilates is the core of Six Degrees. The Pilates Method is a comprehensive movement program that speaks to everyone, helping clients develop and use proper alignment and stabilization, thus giving all bodies the gift of freedom within movement. The Reformer is the traditional piece of equipment used in Pilates. Classes are limited to six students, allowing for individualized work and instructor attention. The machines’ springs support the larger muscle groups so that you can focus on elongating and building the small muscles that support your posture and overall health. This class is periodically offered as a six-week series for beginners.
Mat Pilates uses your own body weight to bring out your inner strength. The practice, designed as physical therapy and once known as “controlology,” focuses on freedom of movement built on a strong core. It is adaptable to students of every level of physical ability and each class is led by a certified Pilates instructor.
Like the Reformer, the Pilates Chair has different spring settings that change the tension on the pedal, allowing for different feedback from the machine in different positions. Joseph Pilates’ ingenious bit of furniture will show you how a new relationship with gravity can change your perspective on the Pilates body.
