Transformation is the goal at Kore Pilates & Yoga Studio, but that goal can be accomplished in a variety of ways. With a staff of certified Pilates instructors, yoga teachers, and massage therapists?not to mention a licensed aesthetician and a chiropractor?the studio has something for people from all walks of life.
The Pilates schedule includes mat workouts as well as apparatus sessions that tone underused muscle groups with precisely controlled movements. Yoga classes mainly embrace the Anusara style, which emphasizes the importance of alignment and controlled breathing. The yoga teachers additionally offer sessions intended to promote general mindfulness or help students overcome mobility-limiting injuries. The TRX suspension system and ballet-inspired barre classes leverage gravity and natural body resistance to create longer, more slender muscles.
While these classes can help bolster health over time, the studio also offers services for guests seeking more urgent relief. Therapeutic massages can identify and relieve sources of muscular tension; chiropractic care, on the other hand, can fix neurological issues and realign misplaced vertebrae. As if all that weren't enough, the studio's aesthetician hydrates and reinvigorates skin with treatments that periodically submerge the face in a cooler of Gatorade.
Korrie's Pilates Place’s founder, Korrie Sudweeks, channels her experience as a personal trainer and former gymnast into an entire spectrum of wellness services, including yoga, Pilates, massage, chiropractic medicine, and skincare. Her classes adhere to the philosophies of Hatha yoga, which carefully ties breath to movement in slow-paced flow or heart-pumping power-yoga sessions. Pilates veers down a different path to fitness, employing mats or equipment such as reformers, Wunda chairs, and the Barrel to strengthen and tone the core muscles that buttress spines and tricornered hats. Large mirrors reflect students’ progress against the backdrop of lime-green walls and hardwood floors.
