Meet the Team

At Essence Pilates, our approach is what makes us the "go to" Pilates Studio in the Chicago Northshore area, and we have proudly continued that philosophy since 2004. We asked ourselves what is vitally important to our clients, and we arrived at a method that is efficient and effective. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to this or are just ready to take it to the next level. At Essence Pilates, we will help you get where you want to go.
