We now have a small retail section at SoWal Pilates! We are carrying Onzie! Here is a little blurb about their awesome clothing...
Utilizing Free-Flow Fabric Technology that is durable and breathable, this fast-drying material keeps bodies cool, dry and comfortable. Onzie yoga gear is perfect for hot yoga, but can also be used for pilates, spinning, swimming, surfing, running or hooping. Our clothes can be worn as everyday wear or into chlorine and salt water environments. You can transition in and out of yoga postures as seamlessly as you can the rest of your day. From straps to bottom, Onzie helps keep your body in check. You'll feel supported from the inside and out…shaping the entire body. So embrace the awareness of your being, sense your core, and feel secure. Focus on your strength and beauty. And for goodness sake, forget about those so-called flaws. You're perfectly you.
We are loving their fun funky leggings, cute tops, and stylish bras! If you haven't...

Curious about what we do in our aerial classes? Here are a few examples of how you can take yoga and Pilates mat work to the silk hammocks...
Take your swan to a flying swan, your stretches to standing, your pigeon deeper and your boat upside down! The support of the silk hammock can both challenge exercises or be used for more support in exercises you need to modify. This support of the silk makes it a great place to practice inversions and decompress the spine with out having any pressure on the head. But, if you prefer to stay upright there is plenty to practice sitting, standing, or suspended in the hammock. Come try it out if you haven't already and be ready to have fun and explore movement in a new way! Come fly with us!!
