Mat Pilates ALL LEVELS

This is an open Mat Pilates class for people of all abilities.  With focus on the core body, Pilates will support improvements in flexibility and strength, working with your present state to develop control and a mindful connection to the body.  This class will leave you feeling long and strong!

Box + Row

What happens when you combine boxing and rowing  - you get the most unique class in Toronto – a total body workout that fuses the intense cardio conditioning of rowing with the powerful core strength delivered by the repetitive punching motion in boxing.  There’s a reason Joseph Pilates originally trained boxers – core strength, shoulder strength, and balance – all common training goals in boxing and pilates.  When fused with rowing, you will experience an amazing program that strengthens your legs, abs, butt, shoulders, and heart – in a pilates studio – get the best of each.  In this class, expect to:

·       Burn between 600 and 1000 calories

·       Increase muscle tone

·       Strengthen bones and ligaments

·       Improve core strength, muscle power, and your sense of balance

·       Improve coordination

 Limited to 12 people. Suitable for all levels.   Please NOTE:  You have the choice of signing up on a single class basis, or purchasing a pre-registered series in 4 week blocks.  To register, click here -

Mat/Barre Fusion

                                Back on the schedule - November 2017................

With a focus on postural strength and alignment this class combines the core stabilizing benefits of Pilates with the muscle toning effects of Ballet Barre which emphasizes movement and strength in the lower body. This class will have your abs and glutes working hard and in harmony!



Using a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates, the barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Classes may also incorporate light handheld weights for a little extra "burn" and to elevate targeting you core.


Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga supports and stimulates the nervous system and connection with your body in a way that promotes relaxation, stress relief and overall well-being. Using longer holds with all poses, this class will utilize a variety of props to fully support the body so that you can let go and experience true bliss.

Suitable for all levels. Great for those with injuries, limitations or conditions that require movement modifications.



Different from the mat, this class uses spring loaded equipment to strengthen and lengthen. While the springs may appear similar to those on the Reformer, the feeling is completely different. Each limb works independently, carrying its own weight. Additionally, the positioning of the springs (higher, and behind you), creates considerable instability, forcing you to deeply isolate your core muscles, as well as enabling you to feel and correct the imbalance between sides. Workouts on the Springwall will help you improve balance, strength, flexibility, and profoundly increase the connection with your core, as well as the mindfulness of your movements. Suitable for all levels of physicality and strength from rehabilitative, to de-conditioned, to trained, to elite.


"Spring" into Rowing

Combining use of the SpringWall with time on the WaterRower, this is where you will test your endurance, improve balance, solidify your core, and truly experience a total body workout.   In this class, you will start with 25 minutes on the rower, and then move to the SpringWall for another 25 minutes.  Expect to sweat and burn!!
