Pilates Mat w/ Diarra @ the AO Studio

Pilates Mat @ the AO Studio Alpha Omega Theatrical Dance Company

Pilates Mat @ the AO Studio with Diarra Cummings is every Friday for lunch from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. This simply devine class focuses on the development of a stronger core. Engage your center and see how it connects to everyday living. Reaching for that glass in the cubbard, picking up a heavy bag, and walking up stairs become activities to support your learnings from class - it's all relatable.

Diarra Cummings began teaching the Pilates method in 2008 following a career as a professional dancer touring with classical ballet and modern dance companies in the U.S. While earning a B.A. from The School of General Studies at Columbia University, Diarra completed her teacher training through Lawson Harris at The Fitness Guru Teaching Lab Pilates Apparatus Certification and her pre/post natal certification through Brigitte Arle at Little Bridge Pilates. Incorporating traditional and contemporary Pilates exercises, Diarra’s teaching emphasizes a conscious approach to movement with a focus on correct alignment and efficient biomechanics in a judgment free and supportive learning environment. Diarra strongly believes in the transformative power the mind has over the body and roots her teaching in the belief that physical health and awareness are essential to reaching one’s optimum potential.
