Michele Tantoco instructs the following:
  • Pilates Mat (Beginner Level)
  • This mat class is a great place to start for beginners or those new to Pilates altogether. The slower pace and modified exercises will help you to learn the system and prepare you to join open level mat classes as you progress.

  • Pilates Mat (Intermediate/Advanced Level)
  • A full intermediate/advanced class utilizing the original series of exercises as created by Joseph Pilates. This class will challenge and take you to a new level of awareness of your body and technique. Recommended for people with strong technique and experience with Pilates only.

  • Pilates Mindful Flow
  • Move mindfully through a sequence of Pilates mat exercises focused on increasing mobility, strength, flexibility and integration throughout the body. You'll have the opportunity to move at a slower, more mindful pace in order to gain a clearer understanding of how to move your body in a more efficient and healthy manner.
