Adult Classes

TDAC is currently offering $5.00 Pilates and Yoga classes for adults. These classes are offered at the same time as our morning kids classes. The hope is that parents will kick off their shoes and join in class rather than sit and wait in the lobby or their car. Classes are 45 minutes long.

Pilates- Beginner Mat Class
Class focuses on the basics of pilates mat. Students will be encouraged to start at the intro level and slowly progress taking many weeks to reach the full potential of the beginner mat series.

What is Pilates
Pilates, pronounced /pɪˈlɑ:ti:z/, is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates in Germany. Pilates called his method Contrology, because he believed his method uses the mind to control the muscles. The program focuses on the core postural muscles which help keep the body balanced and which are essential to providing support for the spine. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, and aim to strengthen the deep torso muscles. Each Pilates exercise is a lesson in opposition. Movement in one direction is lengthened and controlled into the next, while oppositional muscles stabilize. This allows Pilates to lengthen and strengthen muscles simultaneously, helping to create an energized, pain-free, flexible and strong body.
