The Pilates Method

Joseph Pilates based his precise exercise regime called Contrology on his experience as a gymnast, boxer, yogi and eccentric holistic healer. His Pilates moves first gained US recognition as he successfully rehabilitated injured ballerinas in the early-mid 1900s utilizing spring-loaded equipment he designed and created himself. Soon he acquired a large following in NY to fill his studio on 8th Avenue.


The Pilates Method requires you to engage your whole body with primary focus on the breath and abdominal core. This Method takes lots of concentration and mindfulness- you can’t simply go through the motions while daydreaming. The Pilates Method is never completely mastered as the moment you gain comfort in one exercise, Pilates offers another movement slightly different and slightly more challenging.

The popularity of the Pilates Method has spread steadily since the day when Pilates first opened his studio in the 1920's. Pilates has become a worldwide phenomenon with over 12 million people practicing, and the numbers continue to grow due to its effectiveness and adaptability.

"I invented all these machines... it resists your movements in just the right way so those inner muscles really have to work against it. That way you can concentrate on movement. You must always do it slowly and smoothly. Then your whole body is in it." - Joseph Pilates


Jennifer is terrific and pays particular attention to what I can and cannot do on the reformer. She customizes my workout so I get what is needed without compromising my new hip and new knee. I really enjoy the attention to detail and her willingness to go the extra mile!

- Tom Bartholomew

Jen is a delightful, very knowledgeable trainer. I have been working with her for at least 10 years. I have confidence in her ability to challenge me without pushing too hard. As an older woman, I have greatly benefited from her expertise and I highly recommend her reformer classes and new studio!

- Sue Roberts

I have been working on the reformer with Jen for 2 years. She does a great job of explaining the form of each exercise, and is able to correct any misalignment so that I always get the optimal benefit of each exercise. Every class is different - she comes with a prepared set of exercises for every session - so that I never get bored.

- Susan Rossick

I have been training with Jen since she opened her pilates studio . I have seen huge changes in my body tone as well as my flexibility and strength. Jen is an expert in pilates reformer work. She continues to challenge me with every training session..... something I look forward to each week. Her studio is very private and she takes every opportunity to keep it sanitary and well ventilated. I look forward to each training session with a smile :)
