We are amping up the Pilates Mat repertoire with a detoxifying boost of Infrared heat. Our high-energy, endurance-building workout will get your muscles shaking and leave you dripping in sweat and leaving class fully energized.

With Infrared heat the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn calories. In this 50-minute class, you will burn around 600 calories, promoting weight loss, strength and endurance.

Not recommend for:
Any active injuries, osteoporosis, herniated discs, pregnancy, high blood pressure or other cardiovascular or neurological conditions. Exercise in extreme temps (hot or cold) places stress on the cardiovascular system.

Berkley studio only … for now!

Pilates Class FAQs

Is Pilates like yoga?

No, but it is very complimentary to yoga! Pilates is a form of strength and bodyweight resistance training. It helps increase strength, muscle definition and improves posture. Yoga is often considered therapeutic when compared to Pilates. Pilates has a full component of mat work, but it also incorporates Pilates machines which help build strength and longevity.

I do not have experience, can I try an equipment class?

Yes! However, you must start with Intro to Pilates classes. We recommend 4 classes or 3 Individual sessions to learn how to use the equipment and the language of the method. Pilates is a little like learning a foreign language. It takes time to learn the skill and progress in a group training environment.

What equipment will we use?

We use Balance Body Reformers, jumpboards, Towers, Pilates arcs, and the Springboards, and of course, the mat! We love our props too, we believe these add a challenge and also help assist at times. These include Pilates rings, balls, bands, and free weights.

Whose teaching style will I like?

We have a wide variety of instructors on our team, some prefer a quiet sneaky burn, others exude energy when you walk in the room. But rest assured, you will get an amazing workout every time. We are like the flavors of ice cream, all different, but amazing. Try all themes for a varied experience and feel the RF way through and through.
