Let Positive Pilates Be Your Personal Pilates

Using the Pilates Method you can get fit using no equipment at all, just by learning basic mat exercises. However, using the equipment correctly accelerates your progress, with the added benefit of supportive resistance training.

I have a fully equipped studio, with all the apparatus built following Joseph Pilates designs.The centerpiece for all Pilates studios is the Reformer.I am able to offer two reformers because I never teach more than two people at a time.
I augment the training with other equipment: the Caddilac,Wunda Chair, High Chair, a ped-a-pull, and all barrels.

Private Lesson:

This is the ideal way to learn Pilates. Using the equipment in a one-on-one environment allows you to gain knowledge quickly — about the Pilates Method but,
more importantly, about your body. Many people have issues that make them hesitant about group fitness sessions.
Private lessons allow you to overcome those doubts.

Semi-privates/Duets:

There’s extra energy when you’re working with a “buddy!” You can bring a friend or I can partner you with another client.
In a duet session, you gain experience on all aspects of Pilates, just as you would in a private session, but these lessons help you to learn how to work independently with guidance.
All clients new to Pilates must take a minimum of 3 private lessons before taking duet lessons, unless you start with a friend at the same level.

Mat with props:

At the heart of the system that Joseph Pilates invented is the mat. It is simple and elegant and really hard work!
Learn the correct way to do these exercises and enjoy the group dynamics of getting fit! We’ll vary the routine with Magic Circles, Foam Rollers, Balls, Weights, Stretchy Bands and Barrels.
You’ll walk away with a set of exercises that you can take with you, and keep fit even when you can’t get to a studio!
