Weight Training builds Strength. Yoga increases Flexibility. Tai Chi builds Control. Pilates Does All Three.
Pilates - lots of confusing choices
You may have noticed all the Pilates-style classes out there; Pilates-Lite,
Pilates-Aerobics, Pilates-Yoga, PilatesCore … every possible
diluted hybrid of this revered regimen is being marketed. In
the flavor-of-the-week world of fitness training, there’s an ongoing
bastardization of the pure discipline that Joseph Pilates taught. The
bar is constantly being lowered. How do you choose without going blind?
Why should you care?
Alternative Fitness Studio?
Because we can legitimately claim to teach the classic method
- the one that Joseph Pilates developed during WW1,
after having studied a wide variety of physical disciplines. This he
taught to such dance luminaries as George Balanchine, Martha Graham,
Jerome Robbins, and many others. The classic method engages mind and
body through a series of controlled movements that have changed bodies
of all ages and fitness levels, improving posture and alignment, circulation,
stamina, body shape, as well as overall strength and flexibility.

have all completed a rigorous certification program in the classic method
that takes up to two years to complete. Plus, they're actively involved

The classic method can be customized to your needs. Training
for a triathalon? Recovering from surgery? Just trying to tone up and
