If you didn't already know, two of my favorite Htown boss babes (@ashtonverrengia @pressuremakesdiamonds) have collabed and officially brought Houston the best pilates studio/juice bar under one roof! Thats right, Method Pilates and Nourish Juice Bar opened their doors to the public this Friday! 🎉
If you've been following me for awhile, then you already know, Nourish is my favorite juice bar and the "Spicy Juan" is my favorite juice! 🍋🍏 Honestly, the only reason I go anywhere else, is because they haven't had a location really close to where I live. That being said, I couldn't be more excited about this new location of theirs! Not only is it right down the street from me, it also has a pilates studio, Method, inside! 🙌🏻
I had the pleasure of being in the first Method Pilates class on Friday morning, during their soft opening, and let me tell you...it was hands down the best pilates experience I have had, thus far! Not only was it an incredible work out, thanks to Dani (@sharinglove, Method program director and instructor) but the studio is drop dead gorgeous! By far the most Instagramable in town! 🙌🏻 If you know Ashton, that won't surprise you, though! 😜
You may think I'm being bias, since one of my besties owns it, and yes, I do know all of the hard work that has gone into the making of Method Pilates, but, I promise, you guys won't be disappointed!
They have 8 Reformer machines to ensure an intimate class setting, giving each client one-on-one training with their fabulous instructors. These machines are the perfect size! Not too big for me to control and not too small for my 6'5, 290 lb. boyfriend to join me in a class! (major plus since he loves pilates but hates the small machines!) 🙌🏻
The best part about the exercise, besides the fact that my entire body was sore the next day, was the instructor, Dani. Dani kept the class energized, fun and heartfelt. 💓
We began the class introducing ourselves and telling each other our mantra or reason for being there. I really liked this, it was a nice touch that I've never experienced at any other studio before, it automatically set the tone for a since of community and unity. 🙏🏻 She also had the entire class laughing hysterically, and for a 8:00 am class, I'd say thats pretty impressive!
So get ready for a body shaking, high intensity work out! Don't let that scare you though! Dani was very knowledgeable and always offered a modified version if needed!
Method is currently offering a soft opening special with classes costing just $10. Once this special is over the intro classes will cost you $20. You can also buy a pack of 5 classes for $75.
Where to find it:
Rice Village, 5313 Morningside Drive to be exact! If your like me and you tend to avoid the Rice Village area, due to the parking situation, don't worry, they have plenty of parking for their customers!
Parking is available in spaces marked "Village Square Parking" in the parking lot located on Rice Blvd, in front of Island Grill. Additionally there is metered parking and a free parking garage located on Morningside Dr.
Hope to see you guys in my next class!
