JUNE 2021
Pilates and More REJUVENATES regularly...
...and now that restrictions have relaxed ~ we are ready to share it with YOU!
Pilates IS a rejuvenating "movement" method incorporating the professional disciplines and diversity of the Pilates and More Team and their devotion to moving you as well as you can for as long as you can ~ with all the JOY and challenges each day presents!

Our team has grown both in size and skills. We have listened to your desires and concerns for your overall wellness and that has inspired us to explore how to serve YOU better.
Functional movements are movements based on real-world situational bio-mechanics. Involving multi-planar, multi-joint movements, that place demand on the body's core-musculature and innervation.

At Pilates and More we are introducing, and sometimes re-introducing, Balance, Strength and Flexibility ~ in a fresh, practical, simple, enjoyable and challenging way!
During 2020 we introduced:
ZOOM classes that will remain on the schedule for the foreseeable future!

Clients invited friends and family out of the region to join. Former clients that moved away, and continue to receive this newsletter, joined from afar.

This SUMMER as you travel to vacation homes, visit family & friends...remember you can join us from wherever you are!...and be sure to invite your housemates! Who's ZOOMing WHO?
MORE is in STORE ~ with Specialty Classes!

Classes using the Reformer with Jump Board. More cardio! Again, we have heard your desire to step up your wellness. The option to use the Jump Board with as MUCH or as little actual "jumping" ~ your choice. Hand weights for an added challenge! So many benefits.
Just ask your instructor to add this feature!!!

Whole Body ~ and separately: Face, Feet and Hands. Balls will be used to maintain the suppleness and tone in all muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

A unique feature at Pilates and More has been rotating the equipment used daily! This ensures that clients practicing multiple days each week get the full Pilates experience. Each week the schedule rotates, as well. This creates well-rounded clients and teachers! Calling on all of our skills to reach every skill each of us possesses! Look for a more structured exposure beginning mid-June!
