Pilates reformer classes are now available at our Downtown Berkeley and Pleasant Hill YMCA locations!
Pilates reformer is a full-body workout that focuses on stabilizing and gaining strength from your center outwards. Improve sports, martial arts, and dance performance by building core strength and greater body awareness. Pilates on the reformer is also beneficial for injury prevention and recovery.
We offer three different levels of classes. Take a look at the descriptions below to find the best fit for you, and sign up today!
If you're looking for more individual coaching, we offer Pilates personal training sessions at Berkeley and Pleasant Hill.
Level I Fundamentals: This class will give you a solid foundation of the fundamental Pilates reformer exercises. This level is perfect for people new to Pilates, haven't done Pilates in a while, or just want to go deeper into the fundamentals of Pilates reformer. This class is for all levels.
Tower Level 1: Fundamentals: Try this lesser known but awesome Pilates equipment class with it's unique mixture of ways to increase full body strength, stability, and mobility.
Level I/II Advanced Fundamentals: This class is for members who have the foundation of Pilates reformer fundamentals and looking for a more challenging class beyond our Level I offering. Prior reformer experience required.
Level II Intermediate: Up your Pilates practice by taking an intermediate reformer class. Intermediate classes offer expanded and more challenging Pilates repertoire in choreography and ability. Must be relatively free of injuries and limitations. Prior reformer experience required and must have permission from Katy Yates or Leslie Olsson.
