About 2 weeks ago Living Social featured a new Yoga/Pilates studio here in Charlotte called Move Studio Charlotte. I've been looking long and hard for a good Pilates class since I moved here 4 years ago, so I thought I'd give this place a try. My first class was this morning and I'm SO EXCITED! This place just opened up in May and is very small right now, so it's awesome. There was only one other person in the class with me - so we got a lot of one-on-one attention and great help with our technique. The instructor is the director of the place and she is a certified Pilates instructor. It was a complete body workout, with all the moves flowing into each other smoothly, in a nice relaxing atmosphere. Just perfect! The class ended 2 1/2 hours ago, and my thighs are still a little wobbly; it was that good of a workout! :)
One of the cool things about this place is that there is no monthly fee. You can either pay a per class "drop in" rate, buy a small package of classes (gives you a $3/class discount), or buy a large package of classes (gives you a $5/class discount). You sign up and pay for your classes online in advance - therefore reserving your spot in the class. So, if you go on vacation, or have a busy couple of weeks and don't make it to a class, you don't have to worry that you're paying for time that you're not using!
So if you're in the Charlotte area and looking for a top-notch Pilates class (they offer Yoga, Social Dance, and Contemporary Dance as well) - you've really got to check out Move Studio Charlotte (located on Hawthorn/Central - Plaza Midwood area).
