BodyKind Pilates’s owner, Jennifer McCandless, leads a staff of instructors in fostering a noncompetitive community where students of all fitness levels can practice an authentic form of Joseph Pilates’ strength-developing workout regimen. During private sessions, one–three students receive hands-on instruction from an experienced teacher while learning Pilates’s fundamental exercises using the studio’s sticky mats, collection of specialized equipment, and the spandex pants that magically fit everyone. Five days a week, group Reformer Plus classes take students through a series of core bolstering moves performed on the Pilates Reformer, using the machine’s system of ropes and springs to resist clients’ movements and sculpt long, lean muscles. Meanwhile, mat sessions utilize efficient floor exercises that use students’ own bodyweight and the pull of gravity to produce muscle-toning resistance. Group classes accommodate three–five students at a time to ensure students receive personalized attention and their own motivational theme song.
BodyKind Pilates's founder and principle trainer, Jennifer McCandless, has dedicated most of her life to the healing arts. She has spent the last 20 years exploring functional anatomy, biomechanics, yoga, and meditation, and achieved a master’s degree in holistic health and wellness. Entranced by Pilates's innovative blend of Eastern and Western body-healing approaches, she then went on to open her own studio. Here, she and a crew of seasoned instructors foster a noncompetitive community, welcoming students of all fitness levels to practice the strength-developing workout regimen. The bright, private studio is loaded with sticky mats, a collection of specialized equipment, and spandex pants that magically fit everyone. The instructors conduct private and small group classes in the Reformer and mat Pilates styles, helping students build bodily awareness, strengthen their cores, and improve their posture, flexibility, and coordination.
