Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit. Through Pilates you first purposefully acquire complete control of your own body and then through proper repetition of its exercises you gradually and progressively acquire the natural rhythm and coordination associated with all of your subconscious activities. This true rhythm and control is observed both in domestic pets and wild animals – without known expectations. – Joseph Pilates

Pilates is a set of exercises that stretch, lengthen and strengthen while focusing on your breath and the connection between your body, mind and spirit.

I teach Pilates 2 ways and I focus on quantity over quality.

The first way is a 50 minute session, my goal is for you to have an inspired and sweaty session. Each will be individualized so you can luxuriate in the process of uncovering your strengths and weaknesses.

The second way (or version) is to incorporate exercises from the work we do during our Structural Integration sessions. For example if you are feeling hunched over from your daily activities, we would spend some time balancing your front and back body with Structural Integration. Then moving on to Pilates, we will allow your nervous system, body and mind to retain this new information with some exercises to give you support.
