THE RITUAL OF FITNESS

Today’s the day to begin a practice. Change your body through a series of classical pilates exercises, intended to bring about consciousness, mobility, posture and strength. In every class at Mind & Motion we work this practice to bring balance to your physical structure as well as your mind. Class size is capped at five people to ensure proper technique and execution. The teachers will know your name. You will be nurtured. Come experience the feeling of a private session in a small group setting.

We also offer private sessions and bodywork for those needing more care. Together, with your practitioner, you will be on the road to improved health and wellness. The studio is located in the Hancock Park neighborhood near West Hollywood and Larchmont Village. 

Approach

We help our clients cultivate wellness by teaching classical pilates and knowledgeable movement. Our group reformer classes and private sessions help you discover how to move with precision and ease. Because our class sizes are small, we offer individual attention that best serves your body and practice. Whether you are attending a group class or having a private session, we nurture you and work with you to better understand your mind/body dialogue. Through curiosity, direction from your teacher and the ritual of practice you will experience deep change.

REFORMER CLASSES

Our reformer classes max out at five clients, to ensure individual attention. This intimate experience allows for guidance and correction from your teacher. The classical pilates classes consist of a repertoire of specific movements which improve overall function and mechanics. Unlike other pilates studios, Mind & Motion offers levels so you can be assured you are placed in the proper class. This way you will not be held back by newcomers or be overwhelmed if you are a newcomer. Our instructors curate their classes with the intention of building consciousness and encouraging curiosity.

Classical 1.0 & 2.0

This is a classical pilates class practiced on the reformer and mat. You will move your body in every direction as you are guided through the classical pilates repertoire. Usually, classes begin on the mat. During class specific movements build upon one another with the idea that progress in strength and posture occurs through the repetition of precise exercise. The Classical 2.0 takes the client into the advanced classical pilates repertoire. The client must have prior approval to attend a 2.0 class.

Creative Contemporary

This class showcases our teacher’s talents and individual approach to the practice. The class retains some of the classical pilates repertoire but is rounded out by creative applications and unique movements favored by our beloved teachers.

Jump & Flow

Get ready to move. This class is about the fluidity of repetitive movement and exciting the cardiovascular system. 20-25 minutes of the class are spent on the reformer jumping against the resistance of the springs. The client will be releasing energy and gaining strength.
