“The mind, when housed within a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power”

Joseph H. Pilates




My first experience with Pilates was with Karen in 2018, and I am so happy I found both! I had tried working out with a trainer at the gym and many other avenues of getting into shape. It wasn’t until I started working with Karen that I saw and felt results. Additionally, I have some neck issues, and Karen can easily modify my lessons so that I can continue to strengthen my neck without injuring it. I love seeing her work with both young and old and I am very thankful for her knowledge and expertise in this field. I look forward to weekly sessions with her, and my body does too!
I started taking private lessons with Karen about 5 years ago. She is an exceptional instructor and a delightful person. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for Pilates keeps me inspired throughout my workouts. She challenges me, and I am regularly surprised with what I can accomplish with her encouragement. Doing Pilates and working with Karen has considerably improved my posture, core strength and flexibility. It has also advanced my performance in my other activities like weight lifting and running. Pilates with Karen is by far the best decision and investment I have made in regards to my longterm health and fitness.
I've been working with the owner, Karen, for 5 years. This studio is a pure gem, with great energy. Karen and the staff are consummate professionals, which leads to results. Serious pilates takes place here, if your goals are to increase core strength, with better posture and mechanical function, I highly recommend this conveniently located studio!
