About this business
From Our Editors
Ansley Watson first discovered the rehabilitative power of Pilates in 1998 after a car accident laid her low. The simple exercises helped her rebuild flexibility and shore up weakened muscles. In fact, Her introduction to Pilates was so life changing that she decided to become a certified Pilates instructor. In 2006, she opened Joie de Vivre Pilates Studio with the hope of sharing the same regimen that got her on the mend—the “Joy in Life” she found by building a healthy life-style class by class.
At Joie de Vivre Pilates, Ansley and her fellow instructors lead students through a variety of private and group Pilates classes. Sessions designed for pregnant women help bolster back muscles, and cardio jumpboard sessions targeted toward skiers amp up stamina. Of course, the studio also hosts tried-and-true reformer classes where students and undercover bosses of all experience levels can work at their own pace.
