Pilates at Studio A

PILATES today is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. Pilates exercises are designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints. This involves placing more emphasis on pelvic and scapular stabilization and integration of all the parts of the body into cohesion. As well, preparatory exercises, modifications and progressions allow the technique to be appropriate for many different body types and abilities, making it applicable to sport-specific training and everyday life. By the inclusion of modern principals of exercise science, Pilates is one of the safest and most effective methods of mindful movement available.

Yoga at Studio A

Union, wellness, balance, confidence, peacefulness, alignment, focus, flow; there is not one consummate word that describes yoga, nor the experience of yoga at Studio A. Through the breath, Yoga aims to calm, strengthen and purify the physical body, directing stress and anxiety to intention of the mind and inviting peace and tranquility deep within our spirit. Dynamic movement, longer holds and unique sequencing work in harmony with awareness of the breath to release effort from the body, allow a return to center, encourage a clear perspective and invite a pause in the now. In our daily living, dying and rising, we are reminded that on our mat, we belong to something greater. At Studio A, clients will feel challenged, but never overwhelmed. We encourage you to engage in a variety of classes designed to effort and return, lengthen and strengthen, to calm and correct, to energize and revive.


The MELT Method™ at Studio A

The MELT Method™ is a revolutionary approach to pain-free longevity that helps you stay healthy, youthful, and active for a lifetime. This patent-pending, pro-active self-treatment technique is backed by science and acclaimed by thousands of devoted MELTers. New research has revealed the missing link to pain-free living: a balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue. These two components work together to provide whole-body support, protection, and mind-body communication. Exercise physiologist and connective tissue specialist Sue Hitzmann has transformed groundbreaking neurofascial science and hands-on therapies into a one-of-a-kind treatment method called MELT.


Barre at Studio A

Barre based classes offer a full-body workout that changes the shape of your body by burning fat and toning muscle. Our classes are deliberately paced and low impact, comprised of a series of exercises that target every muscle group. Each session is followed with a series of stretches that will effectively create and maintain long and lean muscles. Classes are delivered by our welcoming, professional and passionate instructors who have successfully completed Barre based training courses, specialized in offering highly personalized experiences in a group class setting. Leave your class sweaty and with a smile on your face, feeling challenged, invigorated, stretched and strengthened.
