Private & Small Group Classes

Pilates

You want to be healthy.  You need to be healthy.  Therefore you need to add resistance training to your regular routine.

Pilates is the absolute perfect solution for those who don't enjoy the "typical" gym experience. 

Pilates is easy on the joints and is the perfect exercise program as you phase out of Physical Therapy following knee, hip or other invasive surgeries.

It was designed to rehabilitate dancers and athletes following injury.  Pilates is gentle and fluid. 

SAFETY FOR YOU!

Williamsburg Pilates offers private, semi-private and small group classes of no more than 7 participants. PLUS...the studio is set up for appropriate social distancing between the equipment apparatus.

Handicap Parking directly in front of studio. No Stairs.

Former musical theatre dancer, singer and entertainer turned Pilates instructor who makes getting strong and healthy lots of fun!

American Physical Therapy Association certified Clinical Instructor


Denise is a physical therapist with over 30 years of experience in creating individualized exercise programs for clients with orthopedic, neurological, cardiopulmonary and general medical conditions who is now focusing all her healing energy into personalized Pilates training and exercise programs for those whose needs have not been met in the traditional gym setting.

Denise is an expert at blending PT and Pilates.  Why? How? Because with our current insurance situation in America, often a Physical Therapist is wrapped in red tape and only allowed to work on the specific area of injury. Working at a Pilates studio, we can focus on the WHOLE BODY and help you maintain or re-gain your physical abilities.  Something to be aware of...Hip issues are informed by the spine, knee and foot, and conversely foot issues are informed by the knee, hip and spine. Working on the whole body is the solution for many, many issues.

She recently completed 500 hours of advanced certification through Club Pilates and is preparing to undergo the Intensive Pilates Rehabilitative Program through Stott® available only to medical professionals. In layman's terms, this means that Denise can guide you through "ALL" the exercises that will help you without the limitations placed upon traditional PT because of insurance ridiculousness!
 
Although Denise enjoys working with anyone who wants to improve their strength, balance and flexibility, she specializes in “pre-habilitative” type exercise programs to help clients prepare their bodies for joint replacement and back surgeries as well as “post-rehabilitative” exercise programs to help clients stay fit after doctor prescribed physical therapy sessions have been completed.

Pain, illness, and injury can cause abnormal movement, posture and breathing patterns that wear on your body. Your body actually has to work harder to move and breathe when you are not aligned properly. This in turn can result in a decreased ability for you to function and enjoy life.

Denise is enthusiastic about helping you to re-educate your body and mind to remember what more natural movement, posture and breathing feels like so your body can function more like it was meant to be.

Foundations and Mat, Balanced Body Reformer, Balance Body Spring Board, Exo Chair, TRX, Ladder Barrel, Spine Corrector, Cadillac, Trigger Point Release, Functional Standing Movement, Special Populations Module.

A licensed massage therapist with 20 years of experience, Michele has a long standing interest in helping people feel better in their bodies. She graduated from The Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences (the oldest massage school in the country), where she later became an instructor. She has been teaching clinical massage therapy, musculoskeletal anatomy, pathology, and movement for over a decade at schools in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Michele discovered Pilates while working as a massage therapist at a NY studio that had Pilates apparatus. She started to trade sessions, saw fast results, and was hooked. Inspired, she knew she wanted to share the method with others. She moved to Williamsburg in 2015, and soon after began her training at Balance Pilates in Richmond.

In 2018 she successfully completed all of the requirements and is now STOTT® Pilates Level 1 certified trainer for: Reformer, Mat, Cadillac, Stability Chair, Arc and Ladder Barrels.

She is also a certified Hatha Yoga teacher (200 hour) trained at the Himalayan Institute in Allahabad, India.

Michele strives to motive and empower clients while ensuring client safety at all times. She believes getting older is just a time to get smarter about your exercise choices and welcomes those of all ages and abilities.

you can't afford NOT to exercise

Bottom Line.

If you don't make time for your health, you will be forced to make time for your illnesses.

As I have recently learned, once you hit the big 5-0, the check engine light comes on and you find out that your body isn't 21 anymore and that the old adage, "use it or lose it" is actually true. 

DON'T LOSE YOUR INDEPENDENCE.

My studio equipment is cleaned and sanitized between every class.

Classes are limited to 4 to 7 participants with plenty of room for social distancing.  

The studio is a safe and judgement-free environment,  both physically and emotionally.

we're ready

it's time to get back into shape and be healthy.

Extra weight is a big problem for many people, and this extra weight leads to high blood pressure, heart issues and diabetes.

Walking is great, and you should do this every day.  But in addition to this, your exercise routine should include resistance training at least twice a week. 

Regular exercise will definitely improve your health and subsequently you won't be afraid to step on the scale or go to the doctor and get your bloodwork. 

now that you're retired, its time to take care of yourself.
