Come join us for pilates classes at Beaver Creek Cumberland Presbyterian Church on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-7:25p. This is a low impact class that challenges the core of your body. The core of your body, which includes your abs and low back. I also like to incorporate inner and outer thighs, glutes, hamstrings, arms, back, and quads into our routine. We will also combine simple yoga poses as stretching exercises. This class is for beginners all the way to advanced ability in pilates. As a personal trainer and pilates instructor I make sure that there are several modifications just in case you need to bring it up a notch or take it down a level.
You get to stay motivated with a group of people that will help to encourge you to continue. Plus you just can't beat the price! (see below for some pilates testimonies!)
It's only $4/person or $24/month ($3/class) for a Pilates Pass.
Long term options: $65/3 months ($2.70/class)
$115/6 months ($2.40/class)

Three years ago, I had a complicated hysterectomy that resulted in significant abdominal adhesions.
Another open surgery confirmed that these adhesions are of the very thick and banded variety and they have been quite painful. I’ve tried everything from ordinary stretches to a Chiropractor to Rolfing (a deep connective tissue massage). While all of these avenues have been good to some degree, nothing has alleviated my pain and discomfort as much as this Pilates class. I am more flexible than I’ve ever been before and my pain levels have decreased remarkably. A great by-product has been that I’ve also lost inches and my stomach has toned up to the point that even my Rolfer massage therapist commented on how tight my abs are! I so appreciate the opportunity to benefit from these sessions.
Thanks for everything.
Upon celebrating my first year anniversary in Pilates classes, what a difference a year has made!!!! When I first started, my main goal was to obtain better flexibility.I am aware that as you age you loose a lot of that.I feel that this has helped tremendously in my range of motion.I’ve also noticed a change in how I stand, sit, and walk.My posture has improved, which I’m sure has to do with strengthening my core muscles.I feel that I can endure the workouts better now than when I started.I try more of the advanced movements, so I’m pushing myself more and hopefully before too long will be able to accomplish more.
I still notice my weaknesses and work hard to build on those moves to improve my strength.My only regret is that I didn’t measure myself before starting these exercises so I could compare the loss.But I can tell a difference in the way my clothes fit.
This has been such a positive experience this year, both physically and mentally.Concentrating on breathing and doing the exercises helps you to forget all that is going on around you.And sometimes you just need that!!!!!!
Roxy's pilates class is the best! It's not your mom's pilates. I have been participating in this class for 2 1/2 years, and I never have had exercise be so fun and seen such good results. Roxy always shows modifications for people who are just beginning up to those who are more advanced, so whatever your level, you can participate. While the class can be very challenging, you can also take it at your own pace to suit your needs. Sometimes we have special classes where she uses personal training techniques. Try it if you want to change your routine!
I have been in Roxy's Pilates class for four years. Every class is challenging but a lot of fun. The hour passes by quickly. Roxy is very professional and knowledgeable. She's the best!
