Noemy has used her knowledge from Ellie Herman to bring Pilates to Calpulli Mexican Dance Company (NYC).

Group reformer class that incorporates using the reformer jump board platform to do a cardio based workout ON the Pilates machine.  The springs on the machine make jumping a lower-impact move than performing the same movements upright.  Not recommended for those new to Pilates classes, during pregnancy, or for those with injuries or chronic health conditions.
