What to expect in your free session


What they are saying

  •  Both Yoga and Pilates have helped build some core strength and flexibility.   I wasn't getting that on a bike and my back feels so much better.  From cycling I had very tight quads and calves, which contributed to some knee pain and plantar fasciitis issues.  Yoga and Pilates have helped me stretch out those muscles and work on overall leg strength.
  • I have had a lot of lower back and hip problems since my son was born almost 18 years ago. Pilates has really helped strengthen my lower back and my hip is not stiff and sore like it used to be. I can really tell in the morning when I get out of bed that I feel so much better! 
  • My original goal was to see how much I could push my hip, after being treated for bursitis for almost 2 years. It kept stiffening up and I was getting really frustrated about not being able to sleep or resume normal activity. I am delighted with the outcomes- I can not only move again but I've met wonderful people along the way!   
  • I am pretty positive that I have more flexibility now than I had in my teens, though I've never been super flexible. I have more patience with my body now and I appreciate what it can do and how far it has come! 
  • I really appreciate the thorough workout a person can achieve with a 50 minute class on the Pilates Tower. The various motions that can be accomplished is amazing! One morning session can definitely change your frame of mind for the rest of the day!

  • My back pain is so much better. Before Pilates, I have would have to miss work or take muscle relaxers when my back went out. I have not called in sick to work because of my back in a year. I am so much stronger. I love it! 
  • Pilates for me is a big benefit to my stress and tension levels. When I do an early morning class I stand taller and I'm ready for the day. 
  • I have increased my core strength significantly! I use the Pilates principles to keep my back safe while participate in (modified) Crossfit classes and gardening.  
  • I feel like I'm using my muscles more as they are meant to be used. I'm more aware of my core muscles and my posture, and I am finding muscles I didn't realize I had. I have more energy and it just seems to motivate me to be more active. 
  • I'm a runner- currently training for a marathon- and have used Pilates to help strengthen my core. This helps me especially when training or racing on uphill terrains. 
  •  My goals are mostly to be strong and able to do the things I love:  travel, garden, and hopefully age gracefully.  As a nurse, I am very aware of the importance of avoiding falls so I really appreciate the balance class.  I am much more conscious now of using my core to do the things I want to do without falling. 
  • In everyday life I incorporate breathing and remembering to engage core and other muscles. This is one of the reasons that I was able to shovel snow for 3 hours last winter without injury!
  • My greatest physical improvements are my core strength and posture(shoulders engaged!). My range of motion for all joints has improved as well. Life/mental improvements are noted as better sleep and less anxiety, as I find myself taking deep Pilates breaths throughout the day.
  • I have noticed much less back and neck discomfort since starting Pilates. I was advised against hard impact to my heels, so the Zumba and Ballet for Fitness classes have been wonderful to help stretch me out and satisfy my love for dance.
  • Pilates has helped me manage my pain/discomfort from Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome on a daily basis. When I start my day with Pilates it always makes me feel so much better mentally and physically
