Modern vs Classical

Pilates reformer classes in minneapolisClassical Reformer Classes

Classical classes run at a fast pace in a specific order using classical transitions between exercises. Not recommended for people with  shoulder, neck, knee, hip, or other joint problems that require modifications.

Modern Reformer Classes

Modern classes accommodate “modern-day” bodies that come with joint trouble, specific weaknesses, imbalances or issues such as vertigo, or the need to move a bit more slowly. Your instructor give modifications and moves the class at a rate that applies to everyone in the class.

I love the reformer series. I’ve just started the intro to reformer and I’m two weeks in. Both Beth and Brenna are wonderful trainers. I’ve wanted to try Pilates for many years, I can’t believe I waited so long. It’s be far my favorite work out experience. Although it’s too early to see physical results, I already feel better mentally and find myself carrying myself better and being more aware of my posture. I really love the mental aspect of Pilates, there is such a great mind-body connection. I’m so glad I found STO. — Tara Videle

Level Descriptions

Introductory

Intro level reformer classes are for people who have never done any Pilates reformer….. or maybe they have in the distant past and need a refresher. Most people would expect to complete only one intro series before moving on to a beginning level reformer class

Modern Beginning

Pilates reformer classes in MinneapolisFor people who have completed the Intro Series or private lessons and have gotten the “go ahead” from their instructor that they are ready to progress. The Modern class would be chosen if the student prefers to move slower or has physical difficulties make modifications necessary. It would also be for the student who is not interested in moving at a fast clip and doing specific exercise sequences. Most students would be expected to stay in the beginning level for at least 3 sequential 8 week series if only taking reformer classes. For students taking private lessons, you will progress quicker.

Modern Intermediate

For students who have mastered the exercises and Pilates principles at the beginning level. Before moving to the intermediate level reformer class, each student must take private lessons to learn the intermediate repertoire and syllabus.

Classical Beginning

For people who have completed the Intro Series or private lessons and have gotten the “go ahead” from their instructor that they are ready to progress.This would be a student that desires to move at a faster pace and does not have injuries or physical problems that would prevent them from moving at a faster pace. Most students would be expected to stay in the beginning level for at least 4 sequential 8 week series if only taking reformer classes. For students taking private lessons, you will progress quicker. Many students will stay in the beginning level and never progress to intermediate. Mastering classical beginning level is very challenging and the student should expect to study and practice at this level quite awhile before progressing.

Classical Intermediate/Advanced

For students who have mastered the exercises and Pilates principles at the beginning level in either private lessons or reformer classes. Before moving to the intermediate level reformer class, each student must take private lessons to learn the intermediate/advanced repertoire and syllabus. Students taking this level should each be taking private lessons on a regular basis. The reformer class is not the place to address individual issues and so students will not be able to progress without private lessons.

If you are currently in the Pilates program here at the studio, your teacher has entered your Pilates level into your online profile. Once you register for class, our staff will double-check that the class you chose and the level in your profile match.
