Group Virtual Classes

Aging Strong Pilates® Group Classes

If you have low bone density, weight-bearing exercises are included and safe mat variations will be offered. Incorporating the science of aging, we challenge our nervous system through fun movement brain games to develop new neural pathways that improve balance, fall response time, and focus. We work on core, lower and upper body strength and we practice how to catch ourselves safely if we trip, to help prevent injury.


Expect improved posture, injury prevention, coordination, core strength, flexibility, and balance with crossover benefits to your daily sports and activities.  This class is appropriate for the beginner to the advanced intermediate active ager. To participate, you must be able to get up and down from a mat safely and independently. No prior Pilates experience necessary, just a willingness to learn and have fun.

The instructor, Teresa Maldonado Marchok, is a licensed physical therapist, certified Pilates instructor, former professional dancer, and ambassador for American Bone Health.  She believes exercise should be challenging yet fun so bring a flexible mind, open heart and be prepared to laugh!  For more information or questions email:  Teresa@PilateswithTeresa.com
