"Where the mind goes, the body will follow"

The original Essence Pilates studio privately owned and operated since 2004

At Essence Pilates, our Pilates teaching is rooted in the traditions of Joseph Pilates but with an added emphasis on the individuality of each client. No one will be given a generic Pilates ‘routine’. Each person’s strengths and goals will be taken into consideration so that the instructor can truly aid all clients to perform each exercise properly and to reach individual goals. Our personalized attention allows one to become in tune with their body, to progress more quickly, and to maximize time exercising.

Bodhi Class

Bodhi brings the precision and movement principles of Pilates to suspension training with the Bodhi Suspension System™. Leaning into the ropes takes the body out of alignment with gravity causing the core stability muscles to fire and developing integrated, whole body strength and flexibility. Bodhi’s four points of suspension maximize strength training and enhance proprioception while providing endless opportunities for creativity.
