Pilates for Yogis
Interested in getting strong while keeping your flexibility?
Pilates for Yogis is for you.
In yoga there is much focus on opening up. It's easy to get addicted to the stretch. But, shifting gears to collecting yourself is helpful - for both strength and stability. That's where Pilates comes in.
Pilates teaches us to hug our midlines. The ability to find your central axis is crucial to balance, order, and structure in your body.
Here's How It Works
Pilates for Pelvic Stabilization
Maintaining flexibility and stability in the area around the pelvis is crucial to a sustainable yoga practice. A stable pelvis allows for effective lower limb mobility and keeps the back and sacrum safe. Strengthening of the pelvic floor also strengthens mula bandha.
Pilates for Arm Balances
Today's practice focuses on core, shoulder girdle, arms, and a little of everything else. Arm balances aren't so much about arms as they are about full body integration. Learning to move from your power house in a coordinated way will improve your arm balances, inversions and transitions.
Pilates for Backbends and Twists
If you spend a lot of time at desk, driving, or hunched over a phone - this class is for you. Strengthen your posterior chain and open your frontside in this series of exercises designed to improve your backbends. You'll finish feeling energized and refreshed.
Pilates for Balance and Control
One of the best things about Pilates is that it teaches us to move from a place of control. That means less momentum, more stability, and better balance. In today's practice, we work on Pilates movements that improve balance and relate to the poses at the end of Primary.

"Love love love all Core for Yogis! So helpful for a bendy person like me."
"I have really enjoyed Jen's Pilates classes. I have found that both helped me in my Ashtanga practice to develop a greater sense of control, strength and stability (especially in back bending as well as inversions, like pincha mayurasana, karandavasana and handstands.)"
"Took core for yogis on Saturday, landed Bakasana B for the first time on Monday."
