Studio Pilates Ltd. is committed to creating a personal Pilates experience to meet the health and fitness goals of each client.
Professional dancers have experienced the rewards of Pilates for decades. Elite athletes use it for strength, flexibility and injury prevention. Celebrities and supermodels practice Pilates to maintain beautiful physiques.
The exercise taught and practiced in Studio Pilates Ltd. is grounded in restoring balance to the spine and moving from the body's center with awareness, strength, and intention.
Pilates is named after its inventor, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the 1920s. In order to formulate his ideas he studied across a range of different sports and exercise disciplines. Joseph Pilates realized that most of us over develop the stronger muscle groups of the body, which ultimately leads to imbalance, better known as poor posture and spinal misalignment.
The primary focus of the Pilates method is strengthening the abdominal and back muscles that provide support, flexibility and power for the entire body. Targeting the deep postural muscles, Pilates works by building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it to correct alignment.
The exercises feature slow, deliberate, rhythmic movements with a very mindful emphasis on breathing and concentration. The quality of movement is valued over quantity of repetitions. Pilates is a full body conditioning system that simultaneously builds strength, increases flexibility and endurance while improving breathing, balance and posture. You will develop acute body awareness that allows for performance of life's daily activities with greater ease.
Paula Carper has been a Registered Dietitian since 1996. In that time, she has provided nutritional counseling to thousands of people and has learned that no two are the same. Even as an identical twin herself, Paula recognizes the uniqueness and the “bio-individuality” that we each possess. After years of struggling with the “one size fits all” dietary advice of the modern establishment, she returned to her roots of wellness promotion and health building through traditional foods and methods. In 2005, she began reviewing time-honored and alternative health and nutrition literature, and incorporating the simple and practical wisdom of traditional foods into her practice. Her passion for health through whole food nutrition, along with the results she was seeing, inspired her to begin her own private practice where she hopes to serve thousands more in their pursuit of optimal health and wellness.

Xtend Barre Creator Andrea Rogers and Director of Education Laurie Alfano have created an incredible Xtend Barre Stick repertoire that utilizes a dowel type apparatus and spring based resistance attached to the Xtend ballet barre. The workout, like Xtend Barre, is comprised of a cardio warm-up, an upper-body segment, lower-body segment, and abdominal focus. The workout draws upon the Xtend Barre fundamentals, chiseling every angle of the body in an intense cardio sculpting workout, but with the spring based resistance, the Xtend Barre stick class adds the challenge of Pilates stability, cardio conditioning, and core training.
