Who we are

We're a Pilates and Yoga studio offering private and semi-private sessions. We  have  over 18 years in the industry are trained to help you restore hope in your body and get you back to the active lifestyle that you once led or just wanting better performance results! We have the highest standards of teaching, and we watch and teach you from beginning to end. We have taught and trained for almost two  decades and can literally see what needs to change in movement patterns to achieve optimum health.


We've successfully helped hundreds of people using different modalities such as Pilates,  Iyengar based Yoga, Physical Therapy, Restorative Yoga, Body Rolling and other myofascial muscle releasing techniques, Gyrotonic, and Breathing Awareness Practice. All of these movement modalities help to bring you back into your truest alignment. Learning the Pilates Method and the principles of Yoga alignment changed my life, now I am ready to help you move towards the life, body and health that you deserve.

Are you ready to work on your path to healing, movement, and inner strength?

Group springboard class, where we use the Pilates Springboard like one would use a Yoga Ropes Wall. This gives the body ultimate length, traction  and spaciousness  Students say the hip opening lasts them all week! Great for people who sit a lot. We focus on opening back, hips and shoulders. Yoga experience is required, but it is a mixed level class.

During Shelter in  Place, we use instead a chair and a 

yoga strap to create a dynamic yoga practice, all levels.
