About Our Classes

Physique Classical-Joseph Pilates, the inventor of this all-encompassing health and fitness regimen, was born in Germany in 1880. His experiences taught him to believe that the (1950's!) modern life-style, bad posture, and inefficient breathing were the roots of poor health. His answer to these problems was to design a unique series of life enhancing physical exercises that help to correct muscular imbalances and improve posture, coordination, balance, strength, and flexibility, as well as to increase breathing capacity and organ function. He was a genius of his time!


Lynsey celebrates his work in the Physique Classical sessions. These sessions are held twice a week to keep his classical work pure and fresh! The goal of these sessions is to maintain the mind/body connection and leave you feeling stronger, centered, and refreshed! You will get the true education of the Pilates Method.

This session involves the Classic, original movement of the Pilates Method. In this class you will work on the principles of Pilates: Concentration, Control, Centering, Breath, Fluidity, and Precision! Level of class: Beginner to Intermediate.

This is a popular class and defines Lynsey's style of training. It involves the same quality of movement but with different challenging variations! Keeping it fun and refreshing!

Power PilatesThe Tabata Protocol--named after Izumi Tabata, Ph.D., a former researcher at Japan's National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Kanoya--is an interval routine developed by the head coach of the Japanese speed-skating team. The workout consists of six toseven 20-second full-speed sprints interspersed with rest periods of 10 seconds.

Lynsey put her own twist on this Thanks to Dr. Tabata and has created a 45 minute power session involving core training, upper, and lower body strengthening.
 It includes more repetitions and will get your heart pumping! “You will feel the burn!” From push-ups and planks to squats and dips, you will love the results from this class!   All done in these 20-30 second intervals! This class ends with a mind-body cool down involving deep breathing and therapeutic stretching. This is a Physique Favorite!
