Why wait until Monday to start that new fitness routine? Instead of spending this Friday night with a Chicago Fizz in hand (not that we have anything against spending Friday nights at the bar), start your weekend with a 90-minute Pilates workshop where you can breathe, move, stretch and most importantly after a long week, relax — no cocktail necessary.
Harmony Mind Body Fitness has a welcoming vibe, top-notch classes, skilled instructors and a calming space outfitted with light wood floors and lots of windows for natural light. Since 2002, owner Laura Dixon has been committed to providing a premier Pilates experience to students at every age and fitness level. Along with a variety of results-driven group classes offered on a daily basis, from Pilates mat and reformer to Gyrotonic and TRX, Harmony offers opportunities to relax and get centered.
Though there is nothing like a great yoga or Pilates class to leave you feeling strong and refreshed, Harmony offers one class that in my personal opinion, everyone should try once. At Candlelight Mat Class, it is perfectly acceptable to be selfish: spend 90-minutes exclusively on yourself, creating a sense of balance and focus within. Candlelight Mat blends your athletic Pilates workout with various stretches and breathing exercises to help you relax and rejuvenate,.
The workshop, which is part of a series of courses offered at the Lincoln Park spot, is aimed to promote relaxation, but you won’t leave wondering if you’ve actually burned calories. The class will incorporate various exercises from Pilates and Gyrokinesis, which is an exercise system that combines specialized equipment and movement that stems from yoga, swimming, dance, tai chi and gymnastics.
