Pilates (puh-LA-tees) is a unique method of body conditioning named after its founder German-born Joseph H. Pilates (1880-1967).
It was built around his six guiding principals: control, centering, concentration, precision, breath and flow. He believed that a healthy body began with strengthening the “powerhouse” or torso which includes the muscles of the abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs and lungs.
Practicing Pilates correctly builds a strong, flexible body without bulky muscles. It improves and corrects posture which allows the body to move with ease and coordination. It takes concentration to execute the exercises correctly so the mind and the body are refreshed and focused.
Our private studio is fully equipped with two reformers, a Cadillac, wunder chairs, and barrels manufactured by Gratz Industries and based on the original designs of Joseph Pilates.
Under the experienced guidance of our instructors, the student receives the authentic Pilates workout in a meditative setting.
Unlike any other machine in the fitness world, these machines use the action of springs which resist and assist the body in performing a wide variety of movements.
This increases flexibility and strength and develops long, lean muscles.
There are over five hundred exercises in the total system ranging from beginner to extremely advanced therefore the student is always challenged and never bored.

Jean McCabe has been a certified Authentic Pilates instructor for over 15 years.
Her background as a professional ballet dancer with the Joffrey Ballet and the Stuttgart Ballet of Germany has given her a unique understanding and approach to Pilates work. Having taught Yoga as well, she feels that it has enhanced her Pilate’s perspective, teaching from a holistic point of view.
