Natural Awakenings 2018 Pilates Teacher & Studio Profiles
Club Pilates Ardsley
Club Pilates Mt. Kisco
True to Joseph Pilates’ original Reformer-based Contrology Method, but modernized with group practice and expanded state-of-the-art equipment, Club Pilates offers high-quality, life-changing training at a surprisingly affordable price. We believe that Pilates is the path to a fuller, more satisfying physical existence, and that being in control of your body helps you to be in control of your life. Best of all, we believe that you can start any time.
We want everyone to do Pilates and enjoy the benefits as Joseph Pilates originally intended. His dream was that someday everyone would be doing his workout, and we’re working to reach that goal.
We offer free introductory classes.
We’re accessible! We open our doors to all practitioners: young, old, beginners and seasoned veterans. We’re open seven days a week, with more than 50 classes to challenge you at each studio.
Elite Performance Physical Therapy of Westchester, PC
I’m not a purist; I’m a fundamentalist. We combine classical and contemporary approaches, drawing from details of each to select a program based on individual needs and modifications as necessary, emphasizing quality, not quantity. As a physical therapist, I believe Pilates presents a comprehensive, whole-body system that makes deep connections as you get to the core of the matter.
“I learned that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will pass an invisible boundary....” —Henry David Thoreau
We’ve expanded our services along with our space. Our new manual therapy PT practice and Pilates studio now offers physical therapy in a “one patient, one therapist, one hour” model of manual treatment and post-rehab and wellness Pilates privates, duets and new Pilates triplets and Physio-Ball triplets (a Progressing Ballet Technique).
At my studio you will reengineer your body under the eyes of a highly filtered lens: Pilates with a physical therapist. As Joseph Pilates said, “You are as young as your spine.” You can create and have it all! Achieving infinite results and elite performance is our mission.
Equipoise: A State of Balance Pilates and Wellness Studio
Homa Oscar, Instructor
Equipoise is the premier Pilates studio in northern Westchester, bringing the highest level of Pilates instruction to the area. Our experienced instructors are certified in the authentic Pilates Method of Body Conditioning founded by Joseph H. Pilates and carried forward by his protégé, Romana Kryzanowska.
Joseph Pilates believed that mental and physical health are essential to one another, creating a total body conditioning. The Pilates Method corrects posture using fewer, more precise movements requiring control and technique, rather than increased repetition. “Contrology,” as it was called back in the day, incorporates mat work as well as other apparatus, allowing people to isolate their muscles to build better strength and flexibility. The result is longer, leaner muscle mass.
We offer private lessons, duets, trios and mat classes for every level, as well as a comprehensive certification program for those interested in becoming instructors. We also offer a variety of workshops and events. In addition, we offer MELT classes, massage therapy, advanced Rolfing and meditation. In June, July and August, we’re offering a special teacher discount of $75 for private lessons. You can choose to work with our apprentices at a discounted rate as well.
Romana used to say, “You can describe Pilates in three words: stretch with strength and control. And the control part is the most important, because that makes you use your mind.”
Rhinebeck Pilates is an Authentic Pilates studio, fully equipped with Gratz apparatus, located in the center of the Village of Rhinebeck. We offer private sessions and small-group classes to men and women of all ages, from professional athletes to people recovering from injuries, and everything in between.
As a certified Authentic Pilates teacher, Elaine Ewing teaches the traditional Pilates method designed by Joseph Pilates, which has stood the test of time since 1929 as an amazing form of exercise that combines stretch with strength and control. Elaine strives to use the method to make her students stronger and more flexible, thereby improving their quality of life and endurance to excel at all things they enjoy.
We have three intro packages for anyone new to our studio: the Best Way to Start Pilates Package ($300 for five private sessions); the Intro to Rhinebeck Pilates ($100 for one private, one equipment class and one mat class); and the Intro to Group Classes ($195 for three Reformer, three Tower and three mat classes).
Rhinebeck Pilates has offered Authentic Pilates in the Hudson Valley since 2003, and we’re the only truly fully equipped studio in the area. This gives our students the most authentic and beneficial Pilates experience possible, because the whole system is available to them. We are known for our high-quality services, our knowledge and our friendly teachers—we’ve been named Best Pilates in the Hudson Valley six times. All our teachers regularly further their Pilates education by studying with the most experienced teachers in the method.
Stay True Pilates
Stay True Pilates is a home studio that offers completely private one-on-one apparatus sessions and small-group mat classes. While sessions are tailored to the individual, they follow the classical order and fundamentals of Joseph Pilates’ method. I was certified in 2009 by Brooke Siler, author of The Pilates Body, and am a member of the Authentic Pilates Union.
Above all, Pilates should be exercise, and you should get a great workout. You should feel lots of muscles working together, you should be breathing deeply, and you should release stress and tension by the time the session is over. In Pilates, little details make a huge difference. My goal is to give you those details and have you feeling stronger and more confident after every session.
Stay True Pilates offers a new-student discount for three private sessions to get you started. We also offer holiday specials and gift certificates.
Anyone can do Pilates! My clients range from a 13-year-old figure skater to a 70-year-old grandmother with arthritis in her hips. Everyone needs to move, so no matter where you are starting, Pilates is a fantastic way to reach your goals. Stay True Pilates is an easygoing, friendly studio where you can work hard and have fun.
