Welcome.

“I believe Pilates should be a fun movement experience that makes more people aware of the potential movement ability that their bodies possess. It gives me great pleasure as a physical therapist assistant, massage therapist, and Pilates instructor, to see clients and patients standing taller and being able to overcome their injuries in order to continue to participate in the activities that excite them.”

Classes

Introductory Individual Session
55 mins.  |  $35.00

The introductory session is intended to distinguish what areas of your body needs flexibility, stability, or strength through a functional movement assessment. The functional movement assessment will be a brief 15 min intake of your fitness goals and look at your movement ability. Your program will be customized using different pieces of Pilates equipment such as: the reformer, tower, arc, and small props. Clients also have the option to do their entire session on the mat. This session is perfect for someone who is over coming an injury, new to Pilates, and wants to improve body mechanics and performance.

Individual Session
55 mins.  |  $75.00

In this session we will continue to work on your fitness goals and find out what exercises help you reach your highest potential. We will customize your program using the reformer, arc, tower, and small props. Clients also have the option to do their entire session on the mat. An introductory session is recommended prior to this type of visit.

Individual Session & Myofascial Integration
55 mins.  |  $85.00

We look deeper into the way your body is preforming by observing myofascial restrictions (muscle tension). Myofascial release and Graston are techniques to help relieve muscle tension and restore motion. The restrictions will be assessed by using a combination of massage therapy techniques as well as observing your body’s movement through certain exercises. Depending on your body’s needs there may be 15-20 mins of myofascial release and Graston to the areas that have limited movement. Pilates equipment that will be used during this session are: the reformer, arc, tower, and small props. Clients also have the option to do their entire session on the mat.

Duet Session | Semiprivate
55 mins.  |  $40.00

For two clients that want to share a workout together. In this session there is still more attention placed on the clients needs compared to taking a group class. The session will be set at a pace that matches the two individual’s movement abilities. We will mainly use the mat and small props. For intermediate to advanced movers we can add a circuit using the arc, tower, and reformer. Duet sessions are a fun way to share a session with a friend or loved one. This makes for a perfect gift!

Group Sessions Available

"I love working with Leah! She assesses my posture, strengths, areas of weakness, and discusses the areas of my fitness that I want to improve, then she demonstrates and helps guide me through new exercises, making sure I'm using proper form and technique. After completing my workout with her, she suggests exercises I can do at home or at the gym to continue to improve my posture, core strength, and overall fitness. Leah is extremely knowledgeable, and her background in physical therapy makes her an even stronger Pilates instructor. I know I'm in good hands when I'm working with her, and she always has my goals and concerns in mind when working with me. I cannot recommend her enough!"
