When Studio Body Logic debuted in 1996, its founder’s goal was simple: to offer Pilates to the people of Alexandria. Now 20 years and one additional location later, the studio’s offerings have expanded to include the full array of Pilates mat and apparatus classes, as well as Barre Body sweat sessions.
Pilates mat classes focus on the classic methods of Pilates, and they’re offered in seasonal 9- to 16-week sessions. Sign up for a session to move through the entire canon of fundamental Pilates moves, which includes focused breathing for the best results. Pilates apparatus sessions incorporate pieces of equipment like the Reformer and Wunda chair to further deepen your practice. If you want to mix up your workouts, try a Barre Body class. Your instructor will explain how small, pulsing movements can have a big effect on your physique and demonstrate how to perform them, often enlisting weights or the ballet barre.
