Pilates is a set of well designed exercises that condition the entire body. The effects of doing Pilates improves strength, flexibility and equilibrium in your body.  It's a program that is gentle enough for mothers to be as well as challenging enough for someone who wants more.  It can involve equipment such as the reformer, cadillac, barrel, chair or it can be done completely with mat exercises.

Pilates teaches you how to correct muscle imbalances within the body to make your body more efficient and to avoid injuries by promoting proper movement patterns.  The effects of a regular Pilates practice are improved awareness of your body,  dramatically improved balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and posture. Pilates is an integral part of your program to reduce pain associated with old injuries by balancing inconsistencies within the body. 



The most effective way to focus on your individual needs, injuries or chronic concerns is through Private Pilates Sessions.  Private sessions are an ideal way to experience challenges with detailed supervision which in turn, will accelerate your progress to a deeper, more advanced level safely.  You will see more progress through learning what is safe and appropiate for your body.

Pilates Effect Duo Classes


With Duo Pilates you can share your practice with your favorite person or we can find you a partner.  Duos give you an economical benefit, allowing you to supplement your private sessions.  Clients will be working on different types of Pilates apparatus and this ensures that you get experience with all of the equipment.  There are many modifications to Pilates work and having different apparatus to work on makes that possible and it's a lot more fun! (max 2)


If you prefer a group setting, the trio apparatus class is for you.  You will work through a pre-programmed circuit designed specifically for the group with modifications as required.  The pace can be faster but don't let that discourage you.  It just means you will always be moving.  It is always recommended that you go at your own pace and move on to the next exercise as you wish.  The instructor will share time amongst all clients ensuring proper form and safety. (max 3)

Pilates Effect Circuit Class
I feel fantastic after my lessons with Lorrie. The afterglow is better than a massage. The best part; no sheet creases on my face that takes half a day to fade. The only thing fading are my back pains.
The core work really helps.
Thank you Lorrie!
