As a professional dancer, Nicky Chronopoulos pushed her body to its limits day after day. After suffering an ankle injury, she decided to explore alternative forms of body movement to work toward recovery. She began studying Pilates and Gyrotonic, and wanted to share the muscle-building and rehabilitative effects she learned with others. Nicky now continues her career as a professional dancer in addition to boasting titles as a certified Gyrotonic instructor and Pilates Master Teacher, and helms her own professionally equipped Pilates studio, oneBody.
At oneBody, Nicky and her team of instructors, with more than 20 years of experience combined, push students to take charge of transforming their bodies in Pilates classes. Rather than toning muscles by consulting a genie, their mat classes incorporate the students’ own body weight and small equipment as resistance to up the challenge. Other classes use machines such as the reformer and magic circle. Both group classes, which are limited to six students, and private sessions focus on technique and proper alignment, giving each student individual attention.
Sunlight filters in through the windows of the studio, with exposed-brick walls and rich wooden rafters enhancing the serenity of the fitness loft. When Nicky isn’t teaching at oneBody, she applies her strength and knowledge as she continues to dance professionally and guide youths at the Chicago High School for the Arts.
