This FREE session is a basic class geared toward beginners. This class covers the five principles of Pilates, breathing techniques, and how to use the reformer.
Engage your core and learn to move with control on a Pilates reformer machine. The Paseo Club has reformer classes for all levels.
Pilates and Props
This intermediate reformer workout will leave you burning. Dumbbells, bands, magic circles, gondola poles, long boxes, and mini bands are some of the "props" you will use to create a strong, sculpted lean physique.
This is an intermediate ballet-inspired workout. Participants use the reformer to build lean muscle and create a long trim physique.
This class is geared towards tennis players, golfers, swimmers, runners, cyclists, and anyone else who puts their body through repetitive movements. This physical therapy-like class will add core strength and stability, as well as increased mobility in the spine, hips, and shoulders.
Jump Board Abs
This fun cardio reformer class will get your heart rate pumping and your legs burning while sculpting your core. The use of the jump board gives your joints a safe and effective way to do plyometric training which strengthens bones and staves off osteoporosis.

As a former gymnast and gymnastics coach, Lawren Johns saw the benefits of Pilates as soon as she began taking classes. Once she saw how Pilates helped to correct and heal the preexisting back injuries she sustained competing in gymnastics, she knew she wanted to teach others how to benefit from these foundational exercises.
Emphasizing core work, breath, and focusing on the stabilizing muscles can not only strengthen the body, but can help it heal from pre-existing injuries as well. Lawren is certified in Pilates Mat, Reformer, Barrel, Chair, and Cadillac.
Teaching group exercise has been part of my weekly routine for 38 years. My Barre and Pilates classes will challenge your muscles and hopefully, bring a smile to your face. I love mixing up routines and trying new music each week.
Pilates is my passion. I especially enjoy the positive energy exchanged during group fitness classes. I believe it’s easier to push ourselves out of our comfort zones with friendly encouragement. This is what I strive to provide. Thanks for choosing to join my classes. See you soon!

My experience includes working for high profile gyms, studios, medical fitness centers and for corporate wellness organizations. I found a passion for corporate fitness, teaching for major organizations like Boeing, Toyota, AT&T/Direct TV and Loyola Marymount University.
With a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and previously in a corporate office job for many years, I saw the direct benefits and results when corporate companies offer daily fitness and wellness options to their employees, so my favorite type of client is the busy business professional!
