Valentine's Day Private Pilates
My pilates teacher, Karii Rürup-Coleman, once said, "Couples who work out together, stay together." And for that she's offering a private duet pilates session for you and your sweetie in lieu of the usual Valentine's Day cheese. If you're still looking for a romantic night out, she promises candlelight, flowers, and relaxing music with her bridges, 100s, and teasers. Don't let your boyfriend use the "I'm not flexible" or "I don't do pilates" excuses—the class is just as much for beginners as it is for avid athletes.
Your private session at Studio Rü will begin with deep stretching and rolling (sound sexy enough yet?), core mat work, and classical pilates reformer for pilates resistance exercises, tailored specifically for each person in your party of two. All sessions end with a quiet gentle restorative pose with blankets and pillows, followed by a complimentary glass of wine.
No boyfriend? Bring any significant other—your mom, your bestie, your next door neighbor. Karii's been teaching for 23 years and is classically trained in dance, pilates & movement (Somatics, Feldenkrais, MELT). She has a master's from the Laban Conservatoire of Dance and Movement in London.
