Welcome to Ease Pilates Studio


Pilates is a form of exercise designed to help you find ease of movement through integration of the body and mind. The focus is on the core which helps you lengthen and strengthen your muscles. Practicing Pilates can improve posture, strength, and flexibility, and facilitate efficient movement.

Benefits of Pilates include:
• increased core strength
• increased awareness of posture and movement
• decreased chronic pain

• increased vitality
• increased energy
• improved coordination.

Pilates compliments many other exercise routines, including yoga, sports, spinning, and cross fit. Schedule your class online, or call the office to schedule a private session!

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke

I have been involved with health and fitness most of my life. I am a Stott (1999) and Polestar (2004) method educated Pilates instructor. Keeping our bodies in motion is crucial for our physical and mental health. Our bodies thrive on the challenge that exercise provides to our muscles and allows us to approach our lives from a healthy perspective. I love to provide a venue for people to challenge themselves while having fun!

As a radiation therapist and educator, teaching in the fitness studio or the classroom is my passion.

Supporting student’s intellectual and physical development is “what it’s all about!”
