Specialty Group Classes in Asheville
Some people prefer the company of others. Other people like the accountability of exercising in a group. And some people like a more economical means to Pilates. Whatever the reasoning, you may enjoy a group Pilates session. Pilates group classes tend towards smaller and more intimate sizes than some group fitness, typically with a maximum of 8-10 people per Pilates class. And with a large room, you never have to feel squished on top of another person.
At Flow PT and Pilates, the group classes encompass a specific purpose for each group. There are currently 2 groups with more (Prenatal Pilates) to come. If you don’t see one that fits you, there’s a chance it will be here in the future! Or drop me a line if you have a class you’d like started!
