Classes Offered at Sheppard Method Pilates
At Sheppard Method Pilates, our goal is to root every one of our classes in the classical Pilates method passed down from Joseph Pilates. For this reason, every class seeks to deepen the mind, body, spirit connection that we believe is essential to a comprehensive practice. At our studio, you can choose from a variety of classes, including:
- Beginner Pilates Classes
- Group Reformer Classes
- Private Cadillac Classes
- Private Classes on All Pilates Apparatuses
- Private Stretching Classes
- Fusion Classes
Please note, some classes may not be suitable for first-time Pilates clients, those recovering from chronic injury or surgery less than six weeks, or those pregnant over 20 weeks. For this reason, we suggest that every newcomer signs up for a beginner class before progressing to more advanced classes—but as always, we leave the decision-making to you.

The Sheppard Method is a perfect compliment to chiropractor care. It helps strengthen and stabilize the back and joints to help keep the body in alignment. I have been referring my patients to Risa for the last 20 years.
Risa's been a great cohost on our shows. She is dedicated to her profession and exudes warmth and sincerity.

Anybody can work out. But Risa Sheppard's unique fitness method offers not only a physical exercise program specifically designed for us, but also an effective method for reducing stress.

I love to go to Sheppard Method Pilates. I get a great workout - Risa even rubs the knots out of my shoulders. Her method makes me feel more fluid and helps take the kinks out of my back, shoulders, even my hands. I feel better all over after a session. I highly recommend her.
I have a chronic back problem, and Risa's tailor-made program has seen me through the worst. I've come through stronger and pain free. She is a natural born healer.
I have trained with Risa for many years and recommend her Sheppard Method to everyone.
