Pilates at the Haven is much More than just a Mat Class.


Recommended Posts

Yes, we go down to the mat & do Pilates core work the last 15 minutes of the class, but... We also strengthen the core & build muscle thru balance, wall, ball & walking sequences for the preceding hour. Every class is marvelously diverse as we continually flow in a wide world of movement.

So..why be satisfied repeating the same sequence over and over? Come, explore and play and become more body and movement aware as you age. 
Learn how great it feels- and how good it is for your health- to be fit and passionate about exercise and being in motion.
Come Discover that Pilates at the Haven is much more fun and creative than your preconceived notions. And a uniquely terrific work-out.
Experience lots of stretching, strengthening & movement in a fun and creative format.
Student Comments-
"I come to class as I like having a teacher to look at me & correct what I'm doing. When I exercise on my own, I don't do anything new. Too, I know I need to be doing whatever I'm doing totally right to be good for my body. I've learned in class it's all about presence and form."- Alie M.- Pilates student of 6+ years.
"Pilates is a wake-up call for my body. It's like we begin doing something new & my body says "Wow, I forgot that I use to be able to move in this way." Suzanne has shown me how often when I think I'm doing something correctly, I may not be moving in the right way, but moving in a way that's become habit & which I'm not aware of at all. Pilates has brought me back in touch with my body, and it feels great."- Julie A., a student who just began her 5th month of classes.
" Pilates is a great work-out. It's keeping me strong and fit, which is especially what I want as I'm aging. I'm now 76 years old & sure don't want to lose it,"- Judy S., Pilates student for 3 years, who devotedly comes 2 x weekly.
