Peoples Pilates was inspired by a desire to make the vast benefits of Pilates available to a broad community at an accessible cost.
Peoples Pilates classes will be Mat and Prop based. By taking expensive equipment out of the mix, we are able to offer offer classes at a rate equivalent to our current Motion Pacific class fees.
The program will begin by being offered Thursdays 9:00-10:00am taught by certified instructor, Abra Allan.
Everyone is welcome. No experience necessary.
Pilates mat is taught by monthly series. To see upcoming monthly series or reserve space click here.
