Pilates (Virtual)

Pilates is a form of conditioning that builds strength and flexibility with a strong focus on alignment, breath, and mindfulness. Recommended equipment includes a mat, resistance band and/or a handheld weight (or something that is heavy enough to use as a weight). A big thank you to Soma Pilates in Redmond for donating this class to Team Survivor Northwest!
