Classes & Workshops

"I have taken Pilates at many venues over the past 15 years. I stay with Ballet Memphis for several reasons. They limit their mat classes to 10 and equipment classes to 4 because of their commitment to individual attention. Plus, there are classes for all levels of students, and most of their instructors have a dance background so movement is their specialty. They also recognize and allows students to rehab injuries. Pilates is a journey and you should consider taking it with Ballet Memphis."    —Judy Tucker, pilates client

Equipment Classes

Pilates equipment training includes more than 500 exercises designed to meet the physical needs of individual clients, and The Pilates Centre is the only facility in Memphis with the entire suite of Pilates equipment under one roof, including Reformers, Cadillac, barrels and more. A private session is required prior to attending group classes so that we may assess your physical needs. Equipment classes may be purchased as privates, semiprivates or groups (of up to 4). All sessions are scheduled for one hour and 15 minutes to give you a full hour on the equipment.


Periodically, the Pilates Centre offers special workshops (typically a one-day class) on topics of special interest to our clients. Please call 753-4177 for more information and to register.
