Q: What if I don't have my own mat?
A: To Make your life easier, We have extra pilates & yoga mats, pilates rings, foam rollers, ties, yoga blocks, drinking water, & hand towels.

Q: Is it ok to be late to class?
A: YES, YES, YES! We'd much rather you be late and make a deliberate action towards taking care of you than to miss YOUR HEALTHY TIME.
With your busy life, persistent steps, even if they are sometimes small, towards self-care is really the key to a more balanced, peaceful life. Generally I spot you coming late to class, I'll roll out a mat for you in the rear of the class so you can slip in quietly to your spot. Shut your eyes, take a few breaths, & give yourself a few moments to transition from where you were before class to being present in class.

I was so intimidated to take a class, and Erin and the other instructors made me feel like I was doing such a great job on my first day. Now, I'm thinking I may want to teach people who were as intimidated as I once was. Jennifer D. Roanoke, VA. I'm busy and usually stressed out so having an efficient workout that calms my mind is key! Erin does such a great job at challenging the muscles but still sending a sense of peacefulness to a class workout. Thank you, Erin" K. Warner. ultrasound technician. Roanoke, Va.
