At our Home Studio, we offer Private instruction and Small Group Instruction. Pre-registration is required; unfortunately we do not accept walk-ins due to limited space. Group Classes are 50 minutes long and require two (2) participants. In the event only one student registers, the class will run as a Private Lesson and last 30 minutes only. The option to have a full-length Private Session is available for an additional fee.
Mat Pilates: Created by Joseph Pilates, this exercise form focuses on core strength and stability while simultaneously lengthening and toning your muscles. Mat classes will incorporate hand weights and the Magic Circle, and may incorporate Barre exercises.
Reformer: The Reformer, or The Universal Reformer, is the most well-known piece of Pilates equipment. A Reformer is a moving platform with a spring-and-pulley system which allows clients to stretch and strengthen their entire bodies and increase mobility in tight, tense areas. Please note: Group Reformer classes are held online only through an online platform called Zoom. Participants pre-register and are given access to live class taught by Everlea.
Chair: Our studio features a High/Low Combo Chair (a combination Electric Chair and Wunda Chair) and a Low/Wunda Chair to offer the two students the ability to have more support if needed. The Chair is of the most challenging pieces of Pilates apparatus and makes for an exciting and sculpting workout!
Cadillac: The Cadillac enables clients have the ability to do many of the same exercises from Reformer class on a stable, non-moving surface. The Cadillac also has several unique exercises that cannot be performed on other pieces of equipment. This piece utilizes spring tension to both assist and challenge clients throughout the class. We use a Gratz Pilates Cadillac. There is one Cadillac in the studio, so it can be used for privates or mixed apparatus Small Group Classes or Duos.
Mat Pilates: Wanting to learn exercises you can take anywhere? Mat Pilates can support your body in any place at any time since all you'll need is your own body and the floor! Let Everlea teach you the Authentic Pilates sequence as taught to her by The Taylor Sisters in Boulder, CO. Amy and Rachel Taylor (now Rachel Taylor Segel and Amy Taylor Alpers) were among the first students of Romana Kryzanowska and were the first students officially certified by Romana. Romana is widely recognized as the main protege of Joseph Pilates.
Chair: Joseph Pilates created The Chair for small NYC apartments, so it is the most compact apparatus but definitely packs a punch! The Chair can be part of any Private or Duo appointment to aid with bringing the body into more balance. There are two Chairs in the studio.
Reformer: The Reformer, or The Universal Reformer, is the most well-known piece of Pilates equipment. A Reformer is a moving platform with a spring-and-pulley system which allows clients to stretch and strengthen their entire bodies and great mobility in tight, tense areas while strengthening and fortifying weak areas simultaneously. There will be two Reformers in the studio as of February 2020, so at present it can be used for privates or mixed apparatus Small Group Classes or Duos.
Ladder Barrel: The Ladder Barrel, or High Barrel, combines ladder rungs with a barrel surface for flexibility, strengthening and stretching exercises. Entire sections of Reformer and Cadillac material can be performed on the High Barrel, with the added comfort of a rounded and supportive surface. The barrel connects to the ladder by a sliding, adjustable base that accommodates different torso sizes and leg lengths. For private training only.
Ped-o-Pull: Originally created to help an opera singer with her lung capacity, the Ped-o-Pull challenges core stability in functional standing position. For private training only.
Small Barrels and Spine Corrector: These small pieces are used in conjunction with the Mat and Apparatus to create balance in the body. For Duos and private training only.
Foot Corrector: As the name indicates, Mr. Pilates created a simple yet powerful tool to help deal with issues that plague us today, like flat feet, bunions, plantar fasciitis and more! For private training only.
"Everlea is one of the best pilates teachers anywhere - we are lucky to have her in Annapolis. She is incredibly skilled and knows exactly what to do to make your body the best it can be. Her classes are very creative and utilize all the pilates techniques and equipment. Every class is unique and fun. She pushes you in a way that is both challenging and safe. Plus Everlea is one of the nicest, most generous and down to earth people I know. Training with her is the highlight of my week." Carolyn G.
