I’m a Pilates purist at heart and so while other gyms were fancier or offered machines and variations, Hilary’s class at New Haven Ballet in Guilford ranked among my favorites. The Monday morning class was attended by several dancers, which made me even more self conscious of my quivering hamstrings, but the tempo was comfortable for multi-levels. Hilary’s class offers a good core work-out, a nice stretch component and an awareness of the body that I found lacking in some of the more “workout” motivated “Pilates” classes. And the price is reasonable. Classes: Mat Schedule: Monday and Wednesday 9:30-10:30, Sundays 10-11 Atmosphere: Converted Ballet studio. Price: $10 per class newhavenballet.org To read more about Pilates classes and studios on the Shoreline, click here.
