45 Minute Pilates Makeover

45 Minute Pilates Makeover

You might be aware, our Pilates class (previously called Metal) got a 45-minute makeover for the New Year! What you might not know is the how, why, and who behind the change. Lots of things remain the same with this class. It's still on the mat - no reformer machines makes it an easier point of entry for most students. Unlike at other studios, it's still in a warm room - 90° with 60% humidity so you'll get a good sweat in. Lots of great movements are at the core of this class to challenge your "powerhouse" muscles - abs, back and glutes. But we knew it was time to give Pilates a fresh start at Sunstone!

Discover Sunstone… Orientation is where it’s at!

Have you ever thought about why beginning something new, or even picking back up something you have done before, is often a source of anxiety? Maybe it is because there is little frame for expectations of this fresh experience, because looking like the new kid can be embarrassing, or maybe it is just because a new path can often feel lonely.

Why Hot Pilates? And More!

Why Hot Pilates? And More!

I am very excited for Sunstone to be offering Hot Pilates (previously called Metal)! The postures Sunstone offers in our Pilates series are dynamic movements that complement the more static nature of most of our yoga postures. The dynamic movements of Pilates challenge the muscles, cardiovascular system, and mind in new and complementary ways. In our hot yoga classes we generally (not always) get in a posture and hold a static position. In contrast in Pilates, we generally stabilize our ‘Pilates Core’ (abdomen, back, inner thighs and buttocks) and making a controlled but dynamic movement.
