Circle Pilates studio recently opened on the second floor of 3300 Post Road, Southport.

The owner, Linda Tors of Southport, is a certified classical Pilates instructor who in the fall completed New York City's Power Pilates Teacher Training Program, which involves classroom work and 600 apprentice hours.

The studio is equipped with all Pilates apparatus, including the Cadillac trapeze table, mats on springs, hi chairs, towers and ladder barrels. Mat classes are approximately 50 minutes long priced at $20 per class or a package of 10 for $180.

Private classes are by appointment. Since all classes are limited in size, appointments are recommended.
