All of our classes are designed to reflect the fundamental root of the Method of Joseph Pilates while integrating modern scientific research and other sources of movement. Classes are small, holding up to six persons in a class. We believe in the attention to detail and have structured our classes so each participant can get a quality experience with individualized attention from the instructor. Our classes will provide you with tools to have a deeper mind-body connection, be armed with a resilient able body, and empower your life. Once you experience the movement, it will become your ritual for serenity and empowerment.
