Pilates level I will be held at 5:30 p.m. and is for anyone new to Pilates— it progresses from basic to more advanced exercises. Pilates level II will be held at 6:30 p.m., and is faster-paced for people already familiar with this popular form of exercise. Classes begin April 5 and run through June 21. There is a fee for this 10-week session, and it is payable to the Town of Windham. Contact Windham Recreation for more information.
