The studio is open for those members missing their indoor reformer sessions!

Dear Hills Members and Pilates community,

We are open! The Hills Pilates studio is opening its doors again per Contra Costa County approval, after more than 6 months of having only outdoor and online training available. At this time we are offering indoor and outdoor private and semi-private Pilates sessions. A lot has happened in 6 months, every corner of humanity has been affected by both the pandemic and by other tremendous challenges. In the midst of it all, we have continued to train; you have gathered with us on screen and pulled out soup cans and towels to recreate a Pilates workout. Many of you have trained on our Pilates deck in heat, wind, cold and even in smoky air. Sometimes all we could do was to stay indoors and - breathe!

Feeling tense? This year has brought our stress and anxiety levels to a new high. Learn how acupuncture can help with Elizabeth Howe in a free online seminar on October 15, more info below.
Or try our Reiki Therapy treatments for chronic pain, insomnia and to improve your overall well being.

Do you, or anyone you know have scoliosis? Pilates is great for developing muscle balance and reducing pain associated with scoliosis. New online class with Anne Mawdsley starting on October 12.

Opening the Pilates studio feels like a huge step forward and one of the many hopeful glimmers of hope and of new developments in 2020. Although hugs and highfives are not yet in order, we want to extend a virtual hand and embrace to all of you!
