Praxi Pilates offers private and group Pilates classes.

We offer three types of classes: reformer, mat, and circuit.

  • Reformer classes use the Pilates reformer exclusively and are limited to 7 people per class.
  • Mat Pilates classes are exclusively mat-based but may use a number of props such as the magic circle, balls, hand weights, or resistance bands, and are limited to 12 people per class.
  • Circuit classes use many of the traditional Pilates equipment such as the reformer, chair, trapeze table (or cadillac), but also incorporate contemporary fitness equipment such as TRX, stability balls, Bosu, or orbits.  These classes are limited to 10 people per class.

All classes are 50 minutes long but we also offer a couple of 90-minute circuit classes each week.

Circuit Class Arlington VA

Pilates Circuit Class

PILATES CIRCUIT CLASSES

Traditionally, in Joe Pilates’ studio there were no group classes as we know them today. Clients basically did a “circuit” class. Each client had their own workout to complete, and they would circuit around the studio to complete their assigned exercises. Joe and Clara would oversee clients to ensure they were completing the exercises as instructed.

A Pilates circuit class at Praxi Pilates uses multiple apparatus, and is often taught in smaller groups that circuit around the studio, performing different exercises at the same time. You should expect to use the Pilates reformer, chair, Cadillac, and mat in a circuit class. You will flow from station to station in the circuit while getting an amazing workout and having fun with other clients.

The benefits of a circuit class include a quick pace that challenges your strength, stamina, focus, and memory! You will be asked to step out of your comfort zone, learning new exercises and using apparatus you may not be familiar with. Despite these challenges, the rewards are worth it! You will leave feeling stronger, longer, and leaner!

Circuit classes are suitable for all, including those with recent minor injuries, pregnancy, or those rehabbing an injury.

PILATES MAT CLASSES

Group mat Pilates classes really work your core. Mat classes are simple – you and your mat (maybe a prop or two) but no fancy equipment. Mat Pilates is the foundation of where the practice of Pilates (or contrology as Joe Pilates called it) came from. These classes are completely modifiable – for beginners to advanced practitioners. Don’t be fooled by the fact that there isn’t any equipment; you will get a great workout using your body weight, gravity, and a few great props. As you progress in your Pilates practice, mat class is a great way to measure your progress.

Expect to spend time on the ground (on a padded mat) and transitioning from your back, to side-lying, and laying on your stomach. Each class will incorporate the Pilates principles. Some movements may seem small but they are mighty and you will likely feel parts of your body that you didn’t know you could “feel”!

Mat Pilates is challenging but can be modified for most injury-free clients.

Pilates Group Classes

PILATES REFORMER CLASSES

Using the most versatile piece of equipment in the Pilates repertoire, the reformer, you will get a full-body workout leaving you feeling stronger, leaner, and standing up taller. The Pilates reformer is a spring-loaded, resistance training machine that allows for numerous exercises to be performed in all ranges of motion leaving the practitioner feeling balanced, centered, and strong.

Pilates reformer classes build strength and prepare you for all your functional movements in life. You will always get a full-body workout in reformer class. The Pilates reformer is fantastic because it can be supportive and help to perfect pilates exercises. The reformer can also be used to make an exercise more challenging by adding resistance which requires additional balance and strength to perform the movement.

Pilates reformer classes are suitable for all, including those with recent minor injuries, pregnancy, or those rehabbing an injury.

If you are prompted to sign up on the waitlist for a particular class, we recommend signing up because the odds of making it into a class from the waitlist are generally good. If a class is full, sign up anyway and you’ll be added to the waitlist. If a spot in class opens up within the early cancellation window, you’ll automatically be added to class and notified via e-mail and/or text (depending on the preference you set in your account profile). If you do not remove yourself from the waitlist online, you’ll be added to the class, so if you are unable to attend please remove yourself from the waitlist so someone else can join. We assume you want to take EVERY class you are waitlisted for.  You will not be added to classes within the late cancellation window if you are on the waitlist; you must add yourself manually.
