Group Apparatus Classes
How do I know if I’m in the right level of class?
We offer multilevel classes designed for various populations. Note that while the levels provide a guide, there will be times when we may require a certain level of proficiency in a private or duet session to ensure your safety before being allowed to participate in a class. Group apparatus classes are 50 minutes in length unless they are specified as an EXPRESS Class which is 25 minutes in length.

Needs a slower pace, moderate assistance with changing settings on apparatus, and/or assistance with modifications & positioning for pre-existing medical precautions (i.e. low bone density, prenatal/postpartum, sciatica, total joint replacements, spine issues, balance, etc.). Needs significant instruction and cuing on posture and movement fundamentals. Slow pace.

PRIVATE SESSIONS FOR THE PRICE OF A GROUP CLASS: TRY OUT AN APPRENTICE TEACHER
The ProBalance® Studio is a host teaching facility for the globally recognized Polestar® Comprehensive Teacher Training Program, as well as several movement related continuing education courses/workshops.
We periodically have Apprentice teachers who have been approved to see clients so they can log in their required Apprentice Teaching hours and gain experience teaching on all of the major apparatus (reformer, trapeze table/tower, combo chair, ladder barrel, and spine corrector).
The benefit of working with an Apprentice is that they will put you through a fitness screening session to identify your problem areas and then work privately with you using most, if not all of the major apparatus in your session for the same price of a 50 min Apparatus group class.
