So I’m happy to report I found a Pilates studio in my are of NYC. It’s actually the street over from my apartment, so that’s great!
My roommate and I went to our first mat class this afternoon. I had never done a mat class before. I’ve only had my private sessions so this was totally new for me. It was pretty cool though. Even though I wasn’t using the reformer or tower, I still felt like I was getting a great workout in. It’s great to know that I can still get a good workout in without it being a one-on-one session.
I am planning on trying there other classes and maybe getting a few one-on-one sessions in there. I’m really interested in their Ballet Bunz and Burn, Baby, Burn classes. They seem like a fun (but tough) way to exercise. I’ll be sure to report on them once I try them.
Also, if you’re in the NYC area (specifically the East Village) be sure to follow Sixth Street Pilates (Twitter handle: @SixthStPilates) because all this month they’re giving away free mat classes to the first person to retweet them each day. I was the lucky winner today, so that was awesome!
