Pilates is a system of mindful exercises
developed by Joseph Pilates. In his 1945 book
"Pilates' Return to Life through Contrology",
he explains this form of exercise "develops
the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures,
restores physical vitality, invigorates the
mind, and elevates the spirit". Regular sessions
can help transform the way you look and feel
while teaching you how to more efficiently use
Pilates is a full body-conditioning program
comprised of a series of approximately 500 designed
movements performed on a mat and/or on specific
apparatus. Pilates improves strength, flexibility,
balance, control and muscular symmetry. The
rhythmic exercises promote elongated and toned
muscles, and are noted for developing abdomen,
lower back and buttocks strength, and create
a strong body core.
That's why it is popular with so many people.
It doesn't matter whether you are a top athlete
or haven't exercised in years - Pilates meets
you where you are and Pendleton Pilates instructors
are particularly adept at meeting your fitness
needs. Pendleton Pilates currently offers several
ways to practice Pilates: Mat Classes, Ball Classes,
Reformer Private or Group Sessions (we require that you sign up in advance for all classes, including mat classes).
Mat and Ball Classes
Our Mat and Ball classes are 55 minutes of
Pilates fundamentals and floor exercises, either
on the Mat or using the Pilates Ball for stability.
Please be sure to sign up in advance through
WebScheduler. Both classes are mixed levels.
Our teachers offer guidance and modifications
to allow both beginners and advanced-level clients
to experience a fulfilling workout. No introductory
sessions are required for Mat classes. An individual
class is $13 and a 10-session class pass is
$110. For more information on pricing see

Group and Private Reformer Classes
At Pendleton Pilates, we request that our
clients first invest in an Initial Consultation
Series. These introductory training sessions
are designed to teach you how get the most out
of your Group Reformer sessions. We do this
by instructing you in the fundamentals of Pilates,
the movements we regularly do in class, and
working with you on proper body alignment on
the Reformer. The Initial Consultation Series
is mandatory for those who wish to enter Group
Reformer Classes and Private Instruction.
The cost is $160 and it includes four
hour-long private or semi-private sessions. If
you have prior Pilates experience, please let
us know as we may be able to work out a shorter
introductory experience, particularly if you
have been trained elsewhere by a Pendleton Pilates
certified teacher. Please call us to make
Additionally, once you have completed your
Consultation Series, you will be able to schedule
yourself into classes and manage your own
online. Please visit

aren't internet savvy or wish us to schedule
for you, our Management Team can help you at
Pendleton Pilates is an educational facility
and on occasion, your session may be observed
or taught by teacher training apprentice(s)
under the guidance of a certified Pendleton
Current Pendleton clients can also schedule
private appointments online. Visit
WebScheduler and go the Appointments tab
to start the process. If you have not visited
us before, you will most likely need to schedule
an Initial Consultation Series. We request that
you do so by calling the studio you wish to
attend so that we can speak to you by phone
and get you set up with the best instructors
for your first visits.
What Should I Do First?
If you wish to work out on the Reformer,
you can call us to schedule your Initial Consultation
Series. After you finish your series and buy
a package of classes with us, you will be able
to schedule yourself online if you wish. If
you would like to come to a Mat or Ball class,
just stop in. These are "open" classes and,
at this time, you do not need an appointment
for these classes.

or Hyde Park Square location, contact our
