Pilates and Dance

Sarah Holmes, Peak Pilates® teacher trainer and dancer, learned through her own experiences that ballet and modern dancers may not need to work to strengthen and stabilize their range of motion, but rather pull back, or work in smaller movement patterns to help strengthen and support the balance of the entire system. We can learn a lot more about the benefits of Pilates and dance by looking at the historical relationships between Contrology, dance and Joseph Pilates.

Free Your Mind with MINDBODY® Online

"As a Pilates and yoga studio owner, I have my hands full. Not only do I spend a large part of my day teaching at my studio, but I also act as a receptionist, sales person, customer service agent and much more. In 2007, within three months of opening my studio I was teaching 8-10 hours a day and struggling to keep up with all the other work that was required to run the studio. I quickly realized that I needed help, but rather than hiring a receptionist that could only help me with the administrative work, I called MINDBODY® Online (MBO), a service that cost less money and helped me with administrative work and beyond..."

Studio of the Month: Joe & Clara®

On December 9, 2012, the same date as Joe's birthday, Joe & Clara®, a Pilates Inspired Health Club in Westlake Village, CA, will celebrate its one year anniversary. The last year has been a whirlwind as the owners, Stacey Philipsen, Romina Laygo and Gabrielle Lawrence set out to create a fully equipped state-of-the-art facility in homage to the man behind the Pilates method and his lifelong teaching partner, Clara.  

The 3,800 square foot facility features three workout studios so you'll be able to make the most of your time in one convenient location. Private sessions are offered in the 8th Avenue Studio, which is affectionately named after the location of Joe's original studio in Manhattan. It features the best of Peak Pilates® classical equipment: the Cadillac, reformer, high ladder barrel and chair. The Classical Pilates Studio boasts six MVe® + Towers with jump board accessories, as well as six MVe Chairs. The third studio called the Pilates Inspired Studio offers group classes, infusing the Pilates principles with props and small size equipment that have been developed since Joe's passing. It is the studio that will continue to evolve as new products that complement the work Joe and Clara created are introduced. Finally, there's a Cardio Suite that enables Joe & Clara to offer a one-stop shop for their clients' fitness goals.

The studio is dedicated to the time-tested benefits of Classical Pilates, while staying current with emerging fitness regimens that bring an element of surprise and delight to clients. The studio also offers cross training with Bosu®, fitness trampolines, Bodyblade® and Pilatesstick®.
