This Intermediate level class uses the Pilates Reformer and other props and apparatus to get you ready to start your day with renewed focus and energy. Better than that second cup of coffee, this “cup of Joe” will get you moving and motivated to face the tasks ahead.
Get ready and geared up with this cardio/interval workout. From the Reformer jump board, to work legs and abs, to the Wunda Chair, for arms and upper body; this class will get your blood pumping and your energy up.
Discover the true wonder that is the Pilates (“Wunda”) Chair in this challenging class that will help you use the unique natural resistance and assistance this sometimes overlooked but Wunda-ful piece of Pilates apparatus will lend to your workout.

Quantum Pilates Group Mat Classes embody the foundation of the Pilates Method. Our group classes make your fitness journey simple, without gimmicks, confusing choreography, or loud distracting music. We use only your body, mind and a mat to lead you through the 34 exercises as outlined in Joseph Pilates’ book “Return to Life through Contrology”. With the help of the basic principles of Pilates; FOCUS – CONTROL – CENTER – FLOW – PRECISION – BREATH, it will become clear that the challenge is in how the exercise is performed. Our classes, from beginner through advanced, will teach you how to be conscious and challenge your body. What you learn here, you can take with you into your everyday life.
In a Quantum Pilates Group Machine class, the equipment adds springs to the equation, adding resistance or assistance to the movements, which can be used to additionally challenge the muscles. Our thoughtful approach to machine classes ensures that you won’t just benefit from the exercises on a physical level, but a mental one too. Just as in our mat class, the focus is not on competition with your neighbor or pumping music, but rather on challenging your own body and mind to be conscious and the best it can be.
If you are new to the Pilates equipment, we strongly recommend that you take the one-on-one 2 session Machine Orientation prior to signing up for a group machine class, in order to become familiar with the equipment, terminology and exercises, for safety and maximum benefit.
