Reformer I classes emphasize basic foundational Pilates movements. Instructors provide careful cueing, ensuring proper execution of each exercise. If you are new to Pilates equipment (Reformer and Chair), please schedule a private session before joining group classes.
Reformer II classes are for clients with sufficient apparatus experience. These classes include more challenging and demanding movement sequences. Additional props, such as the magic circle and foam roller, are incorporated.
Chair/Mat classes combine mat work with the Chair, which is one of the most challenging pieces of Pilates equipment. It is especially effective in building strength in the legs and shoulders.
CORE Barre class provides 50 minutes of intense muscle toning and cardio exercises for a full body workout. Using traditional barre exercises along with weights/bands for strength training, you are sure to bring your heart rate up and feel the burn!
Target Barre focuses on specific muscle groups in a concentrated and specific way. Each exercise isolates at least one major muscle group, pushing it to exhaustion and lengthening it via stretching. The slower pace of the class allows each client to create and foster body awareness.

Carol Galloway / Pilates
Carol was born and raised in Baton Rouge. For many years she worked as an attorney in private practice, both in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. She was introduced to Pilates in 2012 (with Beatriz as her instructor) and was drawn to the gracefulness and strengthening quality of the movement.
