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...


Students in the 21st Century After School program at Eisenhower Elementary face many challenges. Many of the students live in poverty and are behind grade level in reading and math. As a volunteer tutor in the Y’s After School program, Paula Khong is working to address some of those needs. Retired from 33 years of teaching in the Green Bay Public Schools, Paula believes that all kids need respect, consideration, and discipline from adults. Paula provides her students each of these things. In her weekly tutoring sessions, Paula works with small group students. She sees her role as taking some of the pressure off of parents, by helping with homework, but also as a resource for teachers, by providing students different kinds of strategies for learning math and reading “Paula is one of those volunteers who constantly goes above and beyond,” writes Mandy Caldie, the site Director at Eisenhower. “After tutoring, she sticks around to help serve dinner to the students and is always willing to be flexible.” In addition to weekly tutoring, Paula and her dog, Kali volunteer at Aurora Medical Center. Each week, they receive a list of patients to visit and talk with. Paula also volunteers at the pediatric clinic at Aurora.
