Teacher Training Our next round of teacher training begins September 13th. See the Training page for details.

Pilates is a system of mindful exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. In his 1945 book "Pilates' Return to Life through Contrology", he explains this form of exercise "develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit". Regular sessions can help transform the way you look and feel while teaching you how to more efficiently use your body.

Pilates is a full body-conditioning program comprised of a series of approximately 500 designed movements performed on a mat and/or on specific apparatus. Pilates improves strength, flexibility, balance, control and muscular symmetry. The rhythmic exercises promote elongated and toned muscles, and are noted for developing abdomen, lower back and buttocks strength, and create a strong body core.

That's why it is popular with so many people. It doesn't matter whether you are a top athlete or haven't exercised in years - Pilates meets you where you are and Pendleton Pilates instructors are particularly adept at meeting your fitness needs. Pendleton Pilates currently offers several ways to practice Pilates: Mat Classes, Ball Classes, Reformer Private or Group Sessions (we require that you sign up in advance for all classes, including mat classes).

Mat and Ball Classes

Our Mat and Ball classes are 55 minutes of Pilates fundamentals and floor exercises, either on the Mat or using the Pilates Ball for stability. Please be sure to sign up in advance through WebScheduler. Both classes are mixed levels. Our teachers offer guidance and modifications to allow both beginners and advanced-level clients to experience a fulfilling workout. No introductory sessions are required for Mat classes. An individual class is $13 and a 10-session class pass is $110. For more information on pricing see Pilates Packages. For class times see Schedule.

Group and Private Reformer Classes

At Pendleton Pilates, we request that our clients first invest in an Initial Consultation Series. These introductory training sessions are designed to teach you how get the most out of your Group Reformer sessions. We do this by instructing you in the fundamentals of Pilates, the movements we regularly do in class, and working with you on proper body alignment on the Reformer. The Initial Consultation Series is mandatory for those who wish to enter Group Reformer Classes and Private Instruction. The cost is $160 and it includes four hour-long private or semi-private sessions. If you have prior Pilates experience, please let us know as we may be able to work out a shorter introductory experience, particularly if you have been trained elsewhere by a Pendleton Pilates certified teacher. Please call us to make these appointments.

Additionally, once you have completed your Consultation Series, you will be able to schedule yourself into classes and manage your own account online. Please visit WebScheduler or Class Schedule to see our classes. If you aren't internet savvy or wish us to schedule for you, our Management Team can help you at 513.478.3232.

Pendleton Pilates is an educational facility and on occasion, your session may be observed or taught by teacher training apprentice(s) under the guidance of a certified Pendleton teacher.

Private Appointments

Current Pendleton clients can also schedule private appointments online. Visit WebScheduler and go the Appointments tab to start the process. If you have not visited us before, you will most likely need to schedule an Initial Consultation Series. We request that you do so by calling the studio you wish to attend so that we can speak to you by phone and get you set up with the best instructors for your first visits.

What Should I Do First?

If you wish to work out on the Reformer, you can call us to schedule your Initial Consultation Series. After you finish your series and buy a package of classes with us, you will be able to schedule yourself online if you wish. If you would like to come to a Mat or Ball class, just stop in. These are "open" classes and, at this time, you do not need an appointment for these classes.
