Pilates Reformer and Pilates Chair Classes

Pilates Reformer

If you are interested in a fascinating workout that helps you to improve core strength, postural alignment, flexibility and ease of movement, a Pilates Reformer class may be the perfect solution for you! Our reformer/tower units use spring resistance and allow for hundreds of exercises to be performed. Class sizes are small which allow the instructor to address the individual needs of the participants. 

The RAC offers multiple class levels from Introductory to Experienced. If you would like help in getting started, or in finding the appropriate level, please contact Mind/Body Lead Hope Carroll-Rizzo.

  • Fee: $15 per class
  • Limit: Currently 3 per class
  • Location: Pilates Studio

Sign up: Sign up for individual classes through the RAC app under the "Live Group Fitness" Category. You can also call the Activities Desk at (507) 287-9300.

Inclement Weather Policy: If the Rochester Public Schools close for inclement weather, Pilates Reformer classes will not be held.


Pilates Chair

Despite the small size of the Pilates Chair, it is a total body experience that demands precision and strength. By using spring resistance and a smaller base of support, a deeper core connection and engagement is required in order to accomplish the exercises. There are times when the chair simply won’t let you cheat!

Currently during the Covid-19 pandemic we are not holding chair classes, but some chair exercises may be added into smaller Pilates Reformer classes.

School Age Swimming Classes

Our swim lesson curriculum is designed to help your child gain greater confidence and safety in, on, and around the water. Your child will be exposed to the joys of swimming by a certified Starfish Aquatic Institute Instructor or Red Cross equivalent.

Note: We will use the first day of class as an assessment day to make sure that all students in each class are in the appropriate level. Also, a portion of time during each class will be dedicated to safety issues and/or skills.

Advancing levels: Please keep in mind that it may take your child more than one session in order to successfully complete a level. Many factors such as attendance, coordination, growth spurts, development, and maturity level affect the students’ progression through the levels. Remaining at the same level should not be interpreted as not improving or not achieving success.
