Mat Class

The Pilates Mat class is a 60 min class that does Pilates exercises on a mat. We use free weights, and various other fitness props to enhance your workout. We work on balance, core strength, flexibility, and endurance. Core strength and balance are so important for all of us, but especially as we get older.

You will feel great and the benefits you will receive are life changing!

"In 2011, along with a group of family members, my husband and I rafted the Grand Canyon. We chose to hike out of the canyon which was an 8 mile hike with a 1 mile gain in elevation.  Because I had little strength, I needed help….. a friend recommended Jody’s Pilates class. That experience was life changing for me.  I knew then that I could accomplish the hike carrying a backpack with ALL of the items I needed for the week!  Other adventures have followed including a bicycle trip in Italy. With her expertise throughout the 12 years I have attended her classes, my experiences have resulted in my ability to undertake, with confidence, other adventures. Most importantly, however, she still is enabling me to stay healthy both physically and mentally. Thanks for all that you have done for me. Your teaching is definitely your calling."
