Pilates Equipment offers spring resistance, core centered, full body exercises that are great for Every Body. All equipment is adjustable for a wide range of height, weight (up to 350 lbs), and joint movement ability.
Do you need to build strength? Pilates Equipment can support your bodyweight so you can safely build strength from the inside out.
Are your limbs strong but your core not so much? Equipment can bring your focus away from your already strong power muscles and into the weaker areas that your mind tries to ignore!
Is one of your goals to address your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles? Improve your posture? Move with less joint pain and discomfort? Get your body to cooperate with you more fully? Then Pilates Equipment could be for you!
I have taken a variety of classes and utilized the wellness services at Zoa’s studio. She is always able to utilize exercises that not only keep my painful joints moving but also growing stronger.Stephanie
In Studio Group Classes
Use the Reformer, the Stability Chair, and the Tower to strengthen your core and work your entire stabilizer system in a safe, enjoyable way!
These in person classes are limited to 2 participants but a few students join in virtually as well. A select few have access to their own Pilates Reformer, but more often Zoa has set them up with Faux Equipment Props and carefully selected and cued exercises so it feels like they are in studio too!
Faux Equipment Classes From Home
I am creative and resourceful! I have developed some great Faux Equipment options using a few easy to find props to get a great whole body workout which is core based, safe for your joints, and cranky parts 🙂 You will get to put your feet into the straps, use your core to move your arms, and so much more! Experienced reformer and tower students say it feels like they are on the equipment from home!
As a professional horse trainer / competitor and amateur triathlete I put my body through a lot of stress with training, competition and the occasional injury. I began taking the Athletic fascia class mostly out of curiosity. It’s made a huge and surprising difference in the recovery of injuries (even old ) and maintaining a body that feels good despite hard training. This is a class every person needs in their life. I promise you will feel better regardless of how you feel walking in.
I began taking the Pilates class also out of curiosity. This class has been a game changer. It gives you greater body awareness but also Greater body mechanics and movement. It has made every aspect of the activities I do better. And the results were almost immediate. I rode better, swam, biked and ran better. I can’t explain it but Zoa can. Highly recommend . Zoa also offers an infrared sauna and red light therapy. As an owner of these devices I can tell you they work. Give them a try! Great place !~ Erica B
