Pilates and yoga studio in the heart of the Genesee Valley. All ages, genders, bodies and abilities welcome. 💜 Sister business to @geneseedance
These are my feet doing some foot work. Without proper framing or good lighting or any of the other things I’m supposed to focus on to “market my business” in this aesthetics obsessed world. But it is Pilates. It’s what I do and teach. I didn’t start teaching to influence strangers on the internet or compete with celebrity fitness trainers with online platforms. I started it because I love movement and this particular way of moving speaks to my muscles and mind—and helping others find the movement that speaks to them is an endless adventure. Footwork is fun.

It’s okay to have grumpy days. Bad days. Sad days. Days where you just feel “off.” 
Today a client said, “I don’t know what’s wrong with me. My life is good! I’m just cranky.” Honestly? Same! 
And you know what? You’re allowed to be! 
The “good vibes only” culture in western yoga, Pilates and fitness spaces is well intentioned but can backfire. We’re human beings—not positivity Barbies. 
I’m glad my client left feeling better than when she walked in after her Reformer practice, and I’m encouraged she found the Pilates studio a safe place to be honest and honor her feelings. 
Also, here’s a reformer sequence that fires up…a lot of things! It made me feel less cranky. ☺️ #endorphins  #feelingsareokay  #pilateshuman

*STUDIO NEWS* 

We will be on a limited group class schedule through August 15 due to low attendance and staff travel. 

We will continue to offer two classes per week during this time and limited private lessons by appointment. 

Unlimited members: you  are welcome to request a *pause* in your membership during this time. We hope to be back in full force by fall! 

I appreciate your support of our little studio. Each and every one of our members brings an special  energy to class that makes moving together the one of the highlights of my day/week/life.
 The group fitness industry has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic and, to be candid, we have not come close to recovering. We’re working on a plan to restructure a bit to ensure we can continue to offer our services in a sustainable way. 
Thanks  to my team and ALL of our dedicated clients, we have remained open and healthy, for which I’m immensely grateful.

Thank you thank you thank you for believing in our mission to bring positive, inclusive, healthy movement practices to our rural community!

Adding the pole to some kneeling arms on the Reformer is a fun way to mix it up! Even with one spring you can FEEL it. 🔥 💪🏼 

I have openings for private reformer pilates sessions on Tues/Thurs and some limited Friday afternoons this summer. Appointments go fast so get in touch and come play.  #pilates  #perryny  #reformerpilates  #pilatesforathletes  #pilatesfordancers  #geneseepilates
