Pilates is a mind-body exercise system designed to optimize physical fitness in people at every level of physical ability. Pilates is an excellent choice for individuals of all ages and fitness levels who have a variety of fitness goals. Pilates is complementary to many traditional fitness routines and the mind-body connection can be useful in preventing stress related illnesses like heart disease. (STOTT Pilates)

Each Pilates session is one hour, private, and personalized to your needs and goals.
Sessions are by appointment and my schedule is fairly flexible. The best way to get you scheduled would be to contact me.
Absolutely! Pilates is great for all ages and fitness levels. There are literally hundreds of exercises that can be done on the mat, reformer and chair at varying levels of difficulty and complexity. In addition, your sessions are personalized and customized to your needs and ability. Because of my experience using Pilates in treatment sessions as a physical therapist, I also know how to modify exercises if needed.
Besides traditional mat Pilates, we will be using a Pilates reformer (with tower), a Pilates combo chair, and other accessories. The equipment can be seen in the photos on this site.
No, due to the fact that the Pilates equipment is not easily portable. I am located in Cheriton, VA, which is easily accessible from most of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Session frequency varies from person to person based on their goals, schedule and other fitness-related activities they participate in. While two times per week is ideal to get the most benefit and carryover from session to session, I understand that this is not always possible. Ultimately, I will work with you to develop a schedule that works best for you.
No. However, If a couple or two friends would like to do a joint session, this is something I can accommodate. Contact me for details.
