We believe in your power to reclaim your body, feel good every day, and show up for your life.
We believe in Pilates, and in training you to practice in a way that will give you a lifetime of true results.
We believe in not going it alone. We believe in guidance. We are not a gym: in a gym setting, you’re left alone. And alone, everything is so much harder. We believe in a community of mutual encouragement and respect.
We believe in an environment that empowers you to take control of your health and fitness and ultimately to transform your life.
Pilates is more than a series of exercises to develop core control.
Pilates is a specific way of moving and living that engages your mind, body, and soul.
We believe in you.
At Concord Pilates, we truly believe in the vision of Joseph Pilates, the creator of the Pilates Method. Pilates as a movement practice is built around a person's individuality. If what you want is the highest quality Pilates training, training that can shift your body and your mind and even your life, you have come to the right place.
At the heart of the Pilates method is a focus on each individual and his or her particular movement patterns. This is why we emphasize individuality in all our classes and sessions, which will give you the transformational experience that turns you into the best version of yourself.
Pilates includes exercises on different pieces of apparatus and bodyweight exercises on a mat (mostly as homework or for very strong people). This is how Joseph Pilates taught, and how he achieved such incredible results with his clients. And these incredible results are the reason that Pilates became such a worldwide phenomenon and not just a fad.
We strive to stay in line with this original method as much as possible. We do our best to offer affordable classes that also honor the truest form of Pilates. Please know that while we might have some rules you consider strict, it is not because we want to bore you or slow your progress. Rather, we have formed these requirements because we know that unless you build a good foundation, you will not see the results you want. We also kindly enforce the class levels and sizes in order to assure that each person receives the safest and most beneficial practice possible.
As with any good teachers, we are here to show you the correct way to do each movement. We do not want you to invest precious time, effort and money and then never know if you are doing an exercise incorrectly. We want to help you get results. We will hold you accountable when you need it. We are honest. We will never promise you something that's unrealistic.
is to help you to find a less painful, more comfortable, more efficient, more graceful way to move. We take this very seriously, and we know you do, too.
You will get out of your Pilates training what you are ready to put into it.
We are so grateful to have the opportunity to help you change your life to be as healthy, strong, and pain-free as possible. We need to do this together. If you ever feel as though you're not getting your money's worth, or if you have any concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to come to us! We are here for you.
For those of you who resonate with what we are doing, thank you for being here. We are even more grateful to you as we work hard in this challenging economy to grow Concord Pilates into a fully-equipped studio, with all the pieces of apparatus that Joseph Pilates created.
Most of all, we need to do this together. Please don't hesitate to come to me with any concerns or questions about our vision, the class schedule, or anything else.
Thank you so very much for being part of this adventure.
