Pilates Apparatus Appointments
Pilates, (pronounced puh-LAH-teez) is a three-dimensional fitness method that has been strengthening and lengthening bodies since the early twentieth century. Its founder, German born Joseph H. Pilates, originally called his work contrology; the art of controlling the body, famous for increasing core strength (muscles of the abdomen, low back, hips and buttocks) and teaching ways to properly support your joints through continuous movement. Pilates brings about aha moments regarding day-to-day habits that may stress the spine, corrects over-training, and reveals ways to eliminate these patterns to achieve a well-balanced, neutral spine providing more power, improved flexibility, coordination, in most cases pain relief, and future injury prevention.

This mind-body method is for every body; men and women, young and old, seasoned athletes, and those deconditioned, pregnant, and post-rehabilitation alike. For athletes, the total body integration, in-depth stabilization, and theory of opposition (moving the body in two different directions to engage more muscle groups at once) techniques enhance your performance within your sport. Enjoy the many exercise variations (pressing, lifting, pumping, flexing, extending, rolling, rotating...) selected by your instructor based upon your current physical condition, and desired intensity.

Come discover there is way more to Pilates than a mat! Explore springs, pulleys, bars and straps, on for example, the reformer or cadillac apparatus. Start off with one-on-one sessions, and then progress to properly arranged duet or semi-private appointment sessions. Beware Pilates can be addictive; it might just be the fitness method you do the rest of your life! We are proud of our community ties where Physical Therapists, Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, and Coaches often refer participants to our studio.

Leading a Progressive Journey
Private, duet, and semi-private Pilates sessions are by appointment, require a prerequisite alignment evaluation and introductory session, easily booked thru MINDBODY, fifty to sixty minutes in duration, taught by a certified Pilates instructor, and may incorporate any or all of the professional Pilates apparatus to include the reformer, tower, Pilates chairs, barrels, spine supporters, and rotational discs, as well as work on the mat. Be sure to bring traction socks, which are available for purchase if needed.

Private Sessions
A private session involves one-on-one attention, more costly than a group class, but the time, money, and commitment to addressing your personal goals, injuries, and chronic concerns; learning the exercises under detailed supervision can be well worth the investment. You will accelerate your progress with this type of tailored programming.

Duet Sessions
Duet sessions involve two participants, ideal for participants possessing similar goals and abilities. We require three prerequisite private sessions, in addition to the introductory alignment evaluation and introductory session, before being eligible to pair up. This requirement is for your safety and to ensure you reap the full benefits of the Pilates method demonstrating consistent proper form. We will gladly find a compatible partner for you. Not intended for those who have major injuries or health concerns.

Semi-Private Sessions
Semi-private sessions involve three to four participants, the most economical alternative to private sessions, intended for seasoned participants possessing similar goals and abilities. We require three prerequisite private sessions, in addition to the introductory alignment evaluation and introductory session, before being eligible to partner up. We will gladly form semi-private sessions for you.

Barre or Yoga Appointments
We gladly offer barre or yoga disciplines by appointment in addition to Pilates, our premier fitness method; you name it and we will accommodate you!
