Yes, they do now. I know Peloton members have been requesting Pilates for ages. Peloton finally delivered with about 20 classes.
Peloton Pilates classes are taught by Emma Lovewell, Sam Yo, Aditi Shah, Hannah Corbin and Kristin McGee.
You can find the classes under strength. You can also look under collections to see them.
You can find the classes in the Strength section of the Peloton on-demand library, there is a class type filter there for “Pilates”.
I have taken almost all of the Pilates classes that Peloton has offered and I love them. Pilates really focuses on strengthening your core.
Many of the moves in the classes remind me of moves I learned in physical therapy. Therapy I had for a herniated disc in my back, and for some pelvic core issues I had after having a 3rd baby.
These moves in the Pilates classes feel completely safe for both of these issues, and remind me of so many I have learned on my own for strengthening my core.
You only need a mat and the app to get started. Pilates is totally low impact. The core and spine strength which comes from Pilates is a great compliment to the Bike and Tread.
Peloton also has Yoga and Barre. What is the difference between yoga, barre, and Pilates?
Yoga is considered an exercise for the mind and body. When it comes to yoga the spiritual aspect can be as important as the physical. Yoga also can be used for relaxation. While it is great exercise and can lead to strength and flexibility, it is somewhat different from barre and pilates. One similarity between yoga and pilates is they both focus on breathing during the entire exercise.
Peloton recently introduced barre classes as well. Barre also focuses on strength but it uses small isometric movements that are based in ballet. Barre can also sometimes include cardio.
Pilates focuses on the core but will also work your entire body. In addition to using a mat pilates can also use exercise machines (but not at Peloton).
While yoga, barre, and pilates are all similar they are also a little different.
Having taken many yoga and barre classes from Peloton too, the pilates are a nice addition but just different enough.
When will Peloton add more Pilates classes?
Just like barre they are hoping to add more classes in 2021. I do believe Peloton bases a lot of their offerings on demand, so if you want more Pilates classes keep taking them, and let Peloton know via social media that you want more!
If you are looking for more on Peloton barre you can read about it here and find it on the app as its own category.
I’m a huge Peloton fan. I love that they keep adding additional content. Since the Pilates dropped I have done almost all of the classes and definitely feel the burn. I am hoping for more this year, and in the meantime there is a ton of additional content on the app to keep me busy.
In early April 2021 Peloton added more Pilates instructors. They include Ally, Kendall, Rebecca, Anna, and Jess King!
They each release five classes bringing 30 new classes.
