Aloha! I'm Arlene
I’m an informed and educated Classical Pilates teacher and I strongly believe in the power of this work to transform the human body and alter your psychic state. What I know from 20+ years of experience is that the closer I researched the source of this amazing method, the more potent my practice became. I am a Vintage Pilates graduate which means I learned my craft from some of the brightest minds in the industry, including first generation teacher Jay Grimes, who learned the Method directly from Joe Pilates.
Who I Work With
I work with a wide ranging clientele of various ages and fitness levels, as well as apprentices just learning to teach and as a mentor for dedicated teachers who want to deepen their understanding of Classical Pilates, improve their practice and create community.
Access The Power of Joe Pilates Work, Move!
Autonomy and independence are encouraged at my studio. I invite my students to learn their exercises and help develop their intuition in regards to movement. I do this mostly by getting out of their way and letting them move. When necessary, I use my hands as a way to guide them and add to the energy of their workout, but I believe it's mostly through autonomy that one begins to access the layers of awareness and mental and physical stamina that builds like magic with balanced daily practice.
