“If practiced with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the whole human body,” according to Joseph Pilates.

At Maiden Lane Studios we approach Pilates as Movement for the Modern Body™. With this approach, we focus on understanding the relationship between physical training & exercise, and the needs of the body for strength, flexibility, and balance.

Pilates focuses on the principles of utilizing core strength, body control, precision, and flow of functional movement with sequenced breath. Maiden Lane Studios emphasizes balance and efficiency in our approach to Pilates training.
