    Comment:  Merav's group and (semi-)private prenatal Pilates classes at BodyTonic. These were my favorite prenatal workouts, especially as my pregnancy advanced and I was losing some of my agility. I always found prenatal yoga to be a bit too snoozy, but prenatal Pilates was the perfect workout, being gentle on the body while not compromising on actually getting some work in! These classes helped me maintain core strength (without harming my stretching abs), work on breathing techniques and pelvic floor awareness, and improve my flexibility and mobility.Based on a August 2017 experience

    Comment:  I cannot say enough great things about Body Tonic Pilates Gymnasium. I have been a devout pilates person for over a decade, and when my husband and I moved to park slope (just this past March) finding a new studio to train at was at the top of my list - especially as I was 5 months pregnant. I am so lucky to have found Body Tonic. Not only are the facilities wonderful (they just revamped all of their equipment) but the staff is incredibly knowledgeable. I took advantage of their introductory 3 session package to meet a variety of trainers, and each one was incredibly well taught and had a wealth of exercises for me (especially in my limited condition) to receive a full body workout. Every week, my sessions have been completely different from the last, giving me a great variety of ways to train. The owner, Jennifer, is incredibly friendly and you can tell she takes immense pride in the studio and in her trainers being well prepared. She is also hosting community friendly events and even creating a pilates for men class. Please note - none of this information was thrust upon me in any forced marketing, but all through me having a genuine interest in a studio that in such a short time I feel truly supported by. Just the other day my trainer said, I can't wait until you have this baby so we can train you even harder as we don't know what your non pregnant body is capable of. What a dream of a studio. I am so happy to have found my workout home.

    Comment:  I love Bodytonic on Fifth Avenue and St John's. It's a Pilates gym so they have both mat and reformer classes. Jen, the owner is great as are all the other instructors and you really feel like you're getting personal treatment, whatever you want to focus on, in the class. Good luck!

    Comment:  There are these really great and Small group classes on the equipment at Body Tonic. I think it came out to something like 20 dollars a class and it was limited to 4 students Its an amazing deal if you want to train on the reformer.
