Our expert faculty offers a diverse educational background, all with rigorous training in a variety of disciplines, including Pilates, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)  and Z-Health as well as other research-based work. But beyond the extensive education, we are proud that our faculty has the expertise, skill set and commitment to innovate and adapt the Pilates exercise system to best benefit your specific situation and needs.

Pilates Masters 

Yes, we are proud of our faculty’s mastery in Pilates, and of all the times we’ve been named “Best of Marin”. But really, the way we prefer to grade ourselves  is based on the number of Nth degrees our students achieve in a year. That’s what comes when we work together to meet--and perhaps exceed--your movement goals.

Pilates Primer

The Pilates Method was developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967) in efforts to provide vitality and wellness through mind-body movement and neuromuscular re-education. It is an exercise system that is based on quality of movement in which awareness, precision and control are stressed over quantity. The principles have evolved to prioritize postural patterning in which motor control, muscle performance and activation are emphasized--all similar concepts to those in most orthopedic rehabilitative and therapeutic settings as well as advanced performance enhancement systems.

Pilates 101

Pilates training develops a high degree of abdominal and back strength, activates the deep, core skeletal muscles, enhances suppleness of the spine and limbs and strengthens overall by increasing neuro-muscular coordination.

By studying the Pilates Method you will gain a cognitive understanding of how the body and mind work together to generate movement of specific muscles, as well as reverse the detrimental effects of timeworn patterning. It is excellent for muscle conditioning, improving overall quality of life, rehabilitating and preventing injuries. Through Pilates you will expand your understanding of  proper alignment, full body integration and what your mind and body can achieve when aligned.
