Equipoise Offers Pilates for All Fitness Levels: Safe and effective workouts

Its official name is long—Equipoise. A State of Balance Pilates and Wellness Studio—but its mission can be summed up in just a few words: health and fitness. The Somers studio specializes in addressing physical limitations that are both common and potentially debilitating, such as disc issues, joint replacements and sciatica. “We are frequently referred by noted physical therapists, chiropractors and orthopedic doctors,” says co-owner Carol Dodge Baker. “We also help people with healthy bodies get in a great lifetime workout. No matter their current level of fitness, we can customize a safe and effective workout.”

Equipoise is a fully equipped studio that offers a variety of Pilates classes, from private, duet and trio sessions to mat classes for the beginner, intermediate or advanced-level client. Dodge Baker says she, co-owner Vandy Lipman and instructor Homa Oscar—all classically trained Pilates instructors—have more than 50 years’ teaching experience combined.

“Equipoise offers a comprehensive teacher training program for those interested in learning the classical Pilates method, as well as a bridge program for instructors looking for certification in the classical Pilates method,” Lipman says. “We also are committed to community outreach by hosting various wellness events during the year.”

In addition to Pilates instruction, Equipoise offers facials by licensed esthetician Kristen A. Evans and licensed massage therapy by Emily Duff.

Equipoise is located in Bailey Court, 334 Rte. 202, Somers, NY. For more info, call 914.276.2056 or visit or Facebook @ Equipoise. A State of Balance, Pilates and Wellness.
