Because life is athletic

Concentrate on the correct movement each time you exercise, lest you do them improperly and thus lose all the benefits. Correctly executed and mastered to the point of subconscious reaction, these exercises will reflect grace and balance in your routine activities ... JH Pilates

When Joseph Hubertus Pilates, a health and wellness genius light-years ahead of his time, developed his method of whole-body (mind, body and spirit) movement in the early 20th century, he was already witnessing the detrimental impact of modern, sedentary lifestyles and the resulting litany of chronic, debilitating conditions. In our contemporary world, this is even more apparent in the alarming increase in osteoporosis, pelvic floor disorders, back surgeries and myriad other joint-replacement surgeries — that we place tremendous demands on misaligned bodies in the form of strenuous exercise and simple daily activities only adds to the problems. Biomechanist Katy Bowman and Pilates teacher-trainer Rebecca Leone's work picks up where Joseph Pilates left off, and a Safe Spine, Strong Back and its accompanying "alignment matters!" mantra is at the heart of every Pilates session at Emerge, whether it's a private session or group class. Joseph Pilates believed that a strong, supple spine is the essence of life, and that belief is the foundation to all our sessions — building strength progressively from within.

It is the mind itself which builds the body ... JH Pilates

Contrology is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work ... JH Pilates

Semi-private sessions are an economical alternative to privates yet still allow for individual attention. Work with a partner (your choice—friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor—or I can help pair you with another client) with similar fitness level, goals and schedules. Like Private sessions, semi-privates incorporate Mat, Reformer, Chair and Tower work, as well as other modalities of movement.
