About Us

What is Pilates?

Pilates on the Mat

A fun class for all levels emphasizing improving flexibility and core strength. Props such as stability balls, toning balls, and bands may be used to increase the challenge.

Pure Reformer

Great for beginners or those wanting to perfect basic skills. The emphasis in this moderately paced class is on a full body workout. You’ll leave feeling fit, toned, and strong.

Cardio Sculpt

An energizing intermediate/advanced level class where we attach a trampoline or jumpboard to the reformer and get the heart rate up and calories burned.

TRX

A challenging, calorie-burning workout using the TRX Suspension Trainer. Strength, balance, flexibility, and core stability are all worked simultaneously in body weight exercises.

Stability Chair

A full body resistance training workout that requires core stabilization due to the smaller base of support. Stability, flexibility and balance are challenged in this athletic class.

* Monthly Unlimited includes all Mat, TRX, Reformer, and Chair classes on the schedule. Limit 1 per day.

A question we hear often is “Is it okay to exercise while I’m pregnant?”

With the go ahead from your Obstetrician, Pilates is an excellent choice for Pregnancy workouts. We and our instructor @kay.law.golf who is expecting her first child in February would like to share some reasons why:

• With increased muscle tone from exercising muscles weakened during pregnancy and less weight to lose afterward, you may recover more quickly after giving birth.

• The hormone Relaxin which is released during pregnancy makes the ligaments highly flexible. This flexibility can make hip, pelvic muscles and the lower back vulnerable to injuries. Pilates can tackle this laxity in ligaments by focusing on the deep abdominal and glute muscles.

• Pilates can help improve stability in the hip, pelvis and lower back regions, thus minimizing pain and injuries.

• Breathing is a key element in Pilates and it is useful during both pregnancy and labor.

• In Pilates we work on strengthening the hammock of the pelvic floor and this will support the uterus, bladder and bowel as the baby moves downward with increasing weight.

• Your upper body can be strengthened and prepped for those upcoming days of carrying the baby and all (!!) of their belongings.

• Balance can become an issue while pregnant and you may start to feel downright clumsy. Pilates will strengthen your core and enhance stability and balance, thus helping you stay safe while walking.

Whatever your motivation for moving, we are here to help.

Except for the fact that he has to look left first one time, then right first the next time (pilates humor), Marc loves Chest Expansion on the Reformer. He started Pilates to see if he could combat his upper back pain and poor posture caused from years of working at a computer (and because his beautiful wife Jen loves it). He is so happy that he “is much more flexible, pain free, and feels leaner and taller now since doing Pilates regularly.” Change really does happen here.

“Coming from a ballet background, I was searching for an exercise studio that sparked my passion for working out again. DeLand Pilates has done just that. Pilates challenges my strength, flexibility and balance as a whole body workout, gives me a much needed release after a stressful day, and drives me mentally to work harder at each session. As a bonus my posture has improved, my core has strengthened, and the back pain and fatigue I was encountering with my job has lessened. Thank you, DeLand Pilates.” -Ashley

Thank you, @ashleymarie425 for the testimonial and for motivating us to be better instructors. It’s definitely a win/win!

Most favorite part of teaching Side Twist is knowing how important this exercise is for the obliques and for spinal mobility. A really close second is just getting to say “Sit Criss Cross Applesauce”
