MOVE AS YOU WERE MEANT TO MOVE.
Each session at the private studio focuses on moving from the core of the body, of the mind, and of the heart. This means that you will be guided through each movement develop coordination of breath, core, and range on the reformer, and specific alignment and strengthening for your individual body on the mat. By combining these targeted tools and techniques with continuous mindfulness, practitioners gain the physical benefits that positively effect their entire body-mind system.
Injured? Postpartum? Anxious? This unique approach to mindful movement and building strength of awareness brings the entire system into alignment. Courtney's method - based in the traditions of alignment-based yoga, Insight meditation and the Classical Pilates repertoire - uniformly works each body part to create balanced, efficient, safe patterns of functional movement which lead to a strong core, supportive posture, and optimal health. The goal is not to make each exercise harder, but to make each movement more effective. You can expect to feel stronger, taller, and more centered after each session. Through this holistic and sustainable approach, over time, you will see improvement in your balance, stability, adaptability, strength, and range of motion as you integrate body and mind.
I have been practicing Pilates and yoga for many years and have rarely encountered a teacher as gifted as Courtney. As a Physical Therapist, I am able to recognize competence in the body work professions. Court has shown that she has a thorough understanding of anatomy, excellent technique on the reformer, and the ability to teach various yoga styles. She is intuitive and able to determine an individual’s needs, thus providing excellent outcomes in assisting them in meeting their goals.

This depends on your schedule, but it's generally most effective to aim for twice a week.
