It's ok to turn off your camera if you want to go incognito. It's great to turn it on if you want any feedback or encouragement from me as we go!  The class is one hour but feel free to join any portion of it (just remember to plan to warm up and cool down safely).  And if your friends want to join us, please send their email address so I can add them to my list (

Classic Mat Pilates with Maryam Paydarfar - TUESDAYS at 3:00 PM

In this class the original 34 exercises of Mat Pilates will be explored. We will learn how our body works and how we can get the most benefit out of the Joseph Pilates routine by using different approaches. You will not need much space to do these exercises – just have enough open space to be able to make a snow angel! Having props like mat, exercise stretch bands, yoga blocks, exercise balls can be very helpful tools, however, in case you don’t have any, we can be creative by finding other household items to replace these.
