Pilates Classes

Pilates WEBE

Pilates classes at the Green Bay Y will lead you through a unique method of breath awareness, body control and conditioning. Pilates focuses primarily on strengthening the central core and using the abdominal muscles to control the movements. 

Schedules Yoga ButtonPilates is an exercise discipline that was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s. It is a systematic approach to physical conditioning, focusing on the breath and core strength. A strong core allows the body to move without undue stress on the spine along with improved balance and coordination.



Enjoy the benefits of better posture, a strong center, and an overall feeling of well-being with our Pilates program offered at the Green Bay Y. All levels are encouraged to participate.

My Y Story...

Mansbridge Family

While cutting down our family Christmas tree In November of 2014, I lost my husband Adrian to a massive heart attack at the age of 45. The devastation brought to me and my small children, only 6, 4, and 1, was incomprehensible. As a stay-at-home mom, we were not only suffering the emotional stress of losing the man we love, but the sudden financial stress as well. The Y immediately reached out to us, reminding me that we are part of their family. They assured me my children would continue to be enriched through classes and that I would be able to take care of myself physically, while not adding any financial burden. The fact that I didn't have to ask, that they reached out and did such a wonderful thing in my deepest moment of despair, is something I will always carry in my heart. My children and I have worked hard to put our life back together and I will always be grateful to the YMCA and its donors who make support like this possible for helping us heal in spirit, mind and body.
