What is Pilates?

The focus of Pilates is to move with confidence, control, and fluidity utilizing proper body alignment.  We'll work within your individual abilities, whether you're new to exercise, a body in need of rehab or an athlete.  Pilates will help you grow longer, stronger, leaner muscles while preventing injuries thus creating a stronger, functional body in motion.  



What to expect on your first session 

While classes are 55 - 60 minutes long, your first session will be 75 - 90 minutes. The additional time will be spent gathering information about you, your goals and any structural issues or pain you may be experiencing.  A personalized class will be programmed for you to address your individual needs and goals.

In 10 sessions you will feel the difference.
In 20 you will see the difference and
in 30 you’ll be on your way to having a
whole new body.
— Joseph Pilates

What They're Saying

When I first started with Amy I was brand new to the idea of regular exercise. I was intimidated by the idea of trying something that i thought would be too challenging. Amy made me feel comfortable and capable and was very patient teaching me the correct techniques. I quickly felt stronger and more toned and I could see muscle definition where I never had any before. Now, 8 years later, Pilates with Amy is still an important part of my life. It continues to challenge me, make me stronger, and has helped me become much more in tune with my body. Thanks Amy!

I was new to Pilates until I tried Amy's class. After years of yoga, stretch and aerobic classes I was ready for something new. I'm amazed at how good I feel after class. It's been 4 years now and I'm addicted to Pilates. Amy's a real professional. A few months ago I broke my wrist and needed an operation. I had the operation but couldn't get back to the Pilates class without a note from my doctor. Amy also wanted a list of my prescribed PT exercises so she could work with my doctors to make sure I healed properly. Thanks teach!

During the off-season, I decided to try Pilates to mix things up. As a triathlete, I'm accustomed to powering through all my workouts. After working with Amy for a month - who "isn't interested in my power" - I'm learning to use all muscle groups together. I'm blown away by the benefits I'm experiencing. I see changes in my core, feel better, less stiff, and I'm performing better. As I age, I'm learning the importance of training smart. Pilates will be a part of that regime moving forward. I'm a believer!
