PLEASE DO NOT COME IN IF YOU ARE SICK. We typically have a 24 hour cancellation policy for appointments, but we will not charge you for a cancellation because you are ill with suspected COVID-19, cold or flu. PLEASE let us know via a phone call or email prior to your appointment (preferably as far in advance as you can). We do not want to take any chances that you just have a "little cold" and still want to come in. The coronavirus symptoms are sometimes just a mild fever and cold symptoms for a couple of days...it may feel like any other mild cold/flu, but we just don't know and don't want to risk that it's more than that. Symptoms of CV could also be so severe that hospitalization could result from respiratory distress. Please think of those around you when you are "one the fence" about coming in to the studio. Please err on the conservative side, especially if you've recently had any symptoms resembling those of the coronavirus.

You can take advantage of seeing us remotely and we can guide you in your movement programs. It is the same pricing as normal for privates and duo classes, the only difference is that we will guide you from either your computer, smart phone, or tablet using the Zoom platform.

High-speed internet access

About: Springboard class is a mat-based Pilates workout. It uses springs and levers attached to a wall-mounted 'springboard'. This class fuses Pilates mat with Pilates equipment training.
Why try a Springboard class
Adding a Springboard class each week will help you improve faster. The springs are the business! They are what makes Pilates such and effective exercise modality. The springs:
- provide support
- create resistance to help improve your strength, flexibility, and range of motion
- enable you to work each side of the body separately to help create better muscles balance — critical for athletic performance and injury prevention.
Mix it up — private or duo classes + Springboard
Springboard classes are less expensive than our other class options so are a great addition to your private or duo classes. With a small group, you get more personal attention. These classes also build a sense of community. Moving with like-minded people makes it exciting and invigorating. If only 2 people are booked, the class will reduce to 45 minutes.
Cost: $380 for 4 private classes + 4 Springboard classes. $260 for 4 duo classes + 4 Springboard classes.
Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR)
Availability: Wednesdays and Fridays only
Duration: 1 hour
Cost: $60 for one or $220 for 4-session package.
About: Connective tissues called fascia surrounds muscles and envelop the entire body. Fascia also play a key role in regulating the immune system. But inflammation, fibrosis, and fascial thickening can limit your range of motion and cause pain. Myofascial release is a safe, effective hands-on technique. It involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue. It is a beneficial addition to the movement work we do at Hearts and Bones Pilates.
