A class with you in mind. Developed to work on balance, posture, strength and to help stop the efforts of osteoporosis. We work on equipment, ball and chair exercises. This is a great class to become introduced to Pilates. Great for beginners who have body limitations that require a little extra time and attention.
High Intensity Reformer- limit 8 students per class.
This class builds on the exercises from the Beginner/Intermediate level class. The exercises become more complex and challenging, and the pace of the class faster-therefore more strength, stamina and coordination are required. (Prerequisites: 5 Privates and 1 year of Pilates reformer classes).
Cadillac classes are designed to build core strength, create uniform muscle strength and flexibility, and to provide a full body workout. Adjustable spring tension helps you to tap into your core and develop longer, leaner muscles. Prerequisites: 5 Privates sessions and instructor approval.
In Pilates Circuit classes, the trainer takes you through a "circuit," spending time on the Reformer, Mat, Cadillac and Chair. Props, such as the foam roller, theraband, magic circles and exercise balls and weights may be added. Prerequisites: Beginner Reformer.
The Pilates Exo Chair delivers a unique and vigorous, full body workout. With a spilt pedal and added-in functional resistance kit, this gives you a host of new exercises not possible with any other chair. Prerequisites: 5 private sessions.

RPM is the indoor cycling workout where you ride to the rhythm of powerful music. Take on the terrain with your inspiring team coach who leads the pack through hills, flats, mountain peaks, time trials, and interval training. Discover your athlete within - sweat and burn to reach your endorphin high. Like all the LES MILLS programs, a new RPM class is released every three months with new music and choreography.
How Often Should I Take a Class?
If you do RPM two to three times per week you'll feel fitter, stronger and leaner.
Your RPM instructor will lead you and the pack through a journey choreographed to inspirational music and incorporating riding positions and speeds to suit the terrain.
At the beginning, the pace is easy and the resistance light, to get your legs warmed up.
Speed and intensity increase as you work towards your top personal pace.
You'll warm up your climbing muscles, then hit a series of full-on hill climbs that test your strength and cycling time trials that test your endurance. There will be time for recovery, just enough to give you the energy to push through the next challenge.
At the end of the class you will finish the journey and ride home together.
Recovery is the name of the game, including the all-important stretch.
What Do I Need to Bring?
Comfortable workout clothes.
Cycling shorts will make the ride more comfortable, but they're not essential. Check out the Les Mills RPM clothing range, designed with each of our classes in mind.

This class is appropriate for those with a steady work out regimen or at least six months of solid yoga practice. However, beginners are welcome and modifications will be given. Mind-body connection will become more important as the movements become more advanced, and students will learn in depth breathing (pranayama) and begin to explore some yogic concentration principals to aid their physical practice (asana). Power yoga will leave you feeling invigorated, refreshed, and will calm your mind and help you get through the day with more clarity.
