We will use blank pieces of paper, colorful markers, dry erase boards, and other easy ways to break you free of your fear of creating the website. You will walk away with pages of your website in your hand, along with great keywords you can use for Google Searches (aka SEO), and a new understanding of how social media will help you spread the word.

ALBB_BeaconPilates_2-1-18.jpg

BEACON PILATES - 18 West Main Street, Suite 3, Beacon, NY
Beacon Pilates is your source for an empathetic practice of Pilates in a relaxed and sunlit filled studio. Founded by Juliet Harvey in 2006, who is a certified Pilates teacher, licensed massage therapist and holds a BFA in dance. The studio offers a highly personalized approach to Pilates, offering both private training and group classes. For privates, come as a single, due or trio. You’ll love the way you look and feel after strengthening your body with Beacon Pilates.
CLASS OPTIONS:
Class signup is easy with MindBody. Descriptions are below, and please see Beacon Pilates' website by clicking here for various class times.

Mat Class: Focused on the classical Pilates mat exercises that work to increase your core abdominal strength.  None of the apparatus is used.  It's your body vs. gravity!

Tower Class: The tower is one piece of the Pilates apparatus.  Do traditional Pilates mat exercises as well as exercises on the tower where you work against the resistance of springs for a full body workout.

Reformer Class: During Reformer Classes, you work on the Pilates apparatus known as the Reformer.  It got it's name because it reforms your body!  You also work on the wunda chair, tower & small barrels.

This Week's Feature from Beacon Pilates:

BeaconPilates_interior_2-9-18 450.jpg

Have you been inside yet? The best way to start at Beacon Pilates is with their Intro Offer of 2 Private Lessons and 1 Trio Class. Pretty soon, you'll be like the owner Juliette's daughter, climbing and hanging from the equipment. Don't you want to do this?
