“A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion.”  -Joseph Pilates

TO JOIN A GROUP EQUIPMENT CLASS you must complete 3 private lessons at Old School Pilates:  Start Here



Joes Gym

Appropriately named this group experience is run the same way Joseph Pilates ran his New York studio. Enter class, pick an apparatus and begin your self-guided workout with the aid of your Personalized Program card and exercise charts on the walls.

While you move throughout your workout, your teacher moves about the room aiding in alignment, checking in with your daily goals, correcting your posture and movement, and empowering you to work at your own level and pace while receiving personalized attention to your form and technique.

Leave mundane synchronized group fitness behind and learn to thrive as you lead yourself through a proven, results driven program designed just for you. And when you’ve met your goals and you’re ready for new challenges, we’ll update your program!



Clara’s Gym

It is said that at Pilates New York Contrology Gymnasium,  Joe would give you your exercises and expect you to know them. His wife, Clara, would go around and help fine tune teaching the nuances such as rhythm and flow.

Suited for all levels (including beginners) this class will work the full system of Pilates on many pieces of apparatus.  This group class offers a bit more structure and guidance than its counterpart “Joe’s Gym” as you begin your journey towards independence.

The beginning portion of the class will be lead by an expert teacher. The end of class will always be left for self-guided individual needs exercises from your personalized program card.




Mat Classes

The Pilates Matwork is the foundation of the Pilates’ system. Joseph Pilates intended for all humans to incorporate these exercises into their morning routines.  These were the first exercises created within the method. Your Pilates Progress is demonstrated through your ability to execute these exercises. By attending Mat classes you learn a series that you can practice daily and take with you wherever you go.




Return to Life Mat Class

Not suited for beginners. This is a fast past class with limited modifications. Master the 34 mat exercises outlined in Joseph Pilates book “Return to Life.” Be prepared to flow, breath, and get your sweat on while delving into the genius of the original mat sequence.



Old School Pilates Mat Class

All levels welcome (even first timers). Many find the mat-work to be the most difficult element of the Pilates system. And for good reason! Without the support of the apparatus, your body has to create its own resistance as you flow from one exercise to the next. It is on the mat that you will see your Pilates progress! Learn a full body workout you can practice daily and take with you anywhere!
