A Note from the Owner

Heather Leon

Building strength and flexibility with balanced, graceful movements is the premise of the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning. Like many dancers, that’s what drew me to this extraordinary exercise regime. The “Art of Contrology” is the name Joseph Pilates gave to his ground-breaking system of low impact exercises, developed almost a century ago. Today, the Pilates system is recognized as one of the most viable exercise regimes for core strengthening, rehabilitation and overall fitness.

In 1994, I was very fortunate to begin my Pilates training with Romana Kryzanowska, a direct disciple of Joseph Pilates. I discovered very quickly that practicing Pilates benefited every aspect of my life. Little aches and pains from dancing seemed to vanish; my body became stronger, more supple, and I acquired better stamina for almost everything I tried. Pilates gave me a sense of physical power and well-being that I still cherish to this day.

As I began my teaching career, I couldn’t help but be impressed with the way Pilates seemed to cure a multitude of ailments. With consistent practice, most of my clients’ injuries seemed to vanish or resolve to the point where it was no longer a limiting factor in their lives. Everything from chronic back and neck issues, knee, shoulder and hip injuries, fibromyalgia, MS, asthma and much more were improved by consistent practice of this method. One by one I would pronounce to my clients, “another Pilates miracle!”

Joseph Pilates believed…

“It is the mind itself which shapes the body”


and that fewer reps could actually be more productive if an exercise is performed correctly. For this reason, in a traditional Pilates session, the client is directed to focus on economy of movement and do fewer repetitions in comparison to other exercise programs. Quality trumps quantity in traditional Pilates. In a typical, one-hour session, an instructor will lead the client through a series of movements on a mat and/or on a Pilates apparatus like the Universal Reformer. To get the best results, it is recommended to train 3 days a week.

A rule of Pilates…


“You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions, and have a completely new body in 30 sessions.”


I believe this statement to be true with consistency. Some clients even see and feel a difference after their first session!
