Pilates Classes

We offer two types of Pilates at H2L Studio, Mat Pilates and Pilates Equipment (Reformer). Mat Pilates follows the Group Class Packages and Pilates Equipment has its own pricing options.

pilatesPrivate Lessons:
Private sessions are performed on various pieces of equipment and are tailored specifically to your goals and abilities. Semi-private lessons are a great way to share the cost and fun with friends. Private lessons can be on any of the equipment including the Pilates reformer, chair, tower and Cadillac. Please reach out to schedule these, they are dependent on the instructor’s availability.

Beginner Pilates Equipment
This class is the perfect place to start if you are new to Pilates, recently completed the Private Intro package or have some health concerns that may need modifications.  The emphasis in the class will be on learning the fundamental Pilates exercises with special attention to proper alignment and technique. The class will be at a slower pace so that you can effectively and safely learn the equipment and the Pilates method while still experiencing all the core strengthening and flexibility benefits.

Pilates Equipment
This class is geared towards the client who has developed confidence in the beginner class can safely adjust the equipment at the direction of the instructor and has a good understanding of the fundamental exercises and possible modifications they may need.  The class will be a more choreographed group of exercises to create flow from one exercise to the next with emphasis on increasing the challenge and scope of exercises. Prior Pilates experience or completion of beginner classes is preferred.

Advanced Pilates Equipment
This class is geared to the client who has demonstrated a good understanding of the Pilates Method, has developed a deeper mind/body core connection, and is ready for a more challenging class with a quicker flow between exercises.  Clients should have a working knowledge of the equipment and can make adjustments at the direction of the instructor. Prior Pilates experience is required for this class.

Mat Pilates
One of our Group Classes, Mat Pilates follows the same principles as all Pilates Classes but without the machines or equipment. Using just a mat, your body weight, and some small props, you’ll be guided through an all-level workout built on a core-focused exercise method performed on a mat, emphasizing strength, flexibility, and body awareness through controlled movements and breath. Mat Pilates is a low-impact workout.

“What’s the best thing about doing Pilates? Everything!  At H2L Studio you can expect a variety of classes, a variety of instructors with their own personal touch and a variety of smiling faces that great you when you get there and a workout that you look forward to having again when you return.” 

Martha W.


What’s the difference between Mat Pilates and Equipment/Reformer Pilates?
Mat Pilates classes are a part of our Group Class Packages, and are on the schedule as “Mat Pilates”. These are a great way to get comfortable with Pilates for a lower price than the Equipment. For these classes, clients will be on a Pilates/Barre Mat using just their body weight and small props for the class. Equipment/Reformer Pilates uses a Pilates Reformer Machine and we only have 5, so those classes are more limited and require additional training and certification by the instructors. Pilates Equipment is at a different price point than our Group Fitness Classes (Mat Pilates).best pilates mechanicsburg

How Much is a Mat Pilates Class?
Mat Pilates falls under the Group Class Packages. This means your first class is free. After that, you can get a single class for $15, a 5-pack of classes for $60 and a 10-pack for $110. The more you buy, the lower the price. Monthly Unlimited Members can enjoy these classes and any other Group Fitness Class for just $105 a month. Students you are invited to enjoy class for just $10 each time. The packages you buy are good for a year, so you can use them when it works for you. The Monthly Unlimited Rate is an auto-renewing monthly membership but you can cancel at any time by emailing us.

How much does a Pilates Equipment Class cost?
Your first Class: $20, you can buy a single class as you need for the $25 drop-in rate. Like all of our packages, they get a little cheaper the more you buy… 5-Pack of Classes is $120 and a 10-Pack of Classes is $220.

We also have some Auto-renewing options that you can sign up for to be charged monthly,  6x Monthly Contract: $122 and 8x Monthly Contract: $159

I have low back problems, will this help?

Yes. The reformer can help you! It works with the forces of gravity instead of against them.

The class always begins with the student on their back, which means the body, especially the lower back, is supported immediately, allowing the student a safe place to work within their comfort level and range of motion. A sensation you can’t get in a lot of other workouts.

I’m very out of shape, is that okay?
Yes, you have to start somewhere and we are here to help. We offer Beginner Pilates Equipment Workshops so we can help you become comfortable on the machine so you can take the Group Reformer Classes and work on your health and fitness goals. Always remember to listen to your body and modify, or take breaks, as needed.

How do I schedule a private session?
Private sessions are available upon request based on instructor schedules. Please email or reach out in the Messaging section of the Momence App, or text us at 717-897-6192 and we can do our best to schedule you.

What if I’ve never taken a Reformer Class?
If you’re new to the Pilates world and haven’t been on the equipment before we suggest starting with the Beginner Workshops.

What are the Intro Lessons?
It’s one-on-one, you and the instructor. They will show you the ins and outs of the equipment and how to use it effectively and safely. It’s the best way for beginners to start! These are not always offered, please reach out to try and schedule. Private sessions are an option, sometimes.

What if I have Scoliosis?  
We encourage you to try the Pilates Reformer. If you are new, start with the Beginner Private Sessions and work your way into a Group Class. Lots of our clients who have scoliosis say Pilates is one of the only things that brings them relief! Read more from our blog post on Pilates and Scoliosis Benefits.
