Create Balance Pilates keeps exercise gluttons satiated with a full schedule of group Pilates classes as well as private and semiprivate Pilates instruction. Embracing the Stott Pilates method, an approach that introduces traditional Pilates principles to modern knowledge of exercise science, owners Renee D’Orsay and Collette Brown tailor private sessions to each student’s skill level, fitness goals, and personal theme music. Every 45-minute private session can focus either on mat work or use of the Reformer, a piece of exercise equipment designed specifically for Stott Pilates.
Group mat-work classes, accommodating to those new to Pilates, focus on essential movements by instilling the five basic principles of Stott Pilates. Conducted with nothing but a polished wood floor and a mat, group mat-work classes help students tighten their cores and align mind, body, and displaced Hokey Pokey hips. To intensify and add variety to the mat work, props such as small handheld balls, stability balls, and fake handlebar moustaches are occasionally incorporated into group classes.

About Create Balance Pilates
Create Balance Pilates owners Collette Brown and Renée D’Orsay believe a balanced body is the path to a balanced life that is both healthy and fulfilling. As Stott Pilates instructors, they foster this equilibrium by teaching core-strengthening exercises developed with the input of physical therapists, sports-medicine experts, and exercise-science researchers that stress alignment and form to help students sculpt their bodies safely. Clear, concise cues guide students through isometric exercises atop exercise mats as well as fluid movements performed on spring-based resistance equipment such as Reformers, jumpboards, and reflex-testing jack-in-the-boxes.
In addition to offering small-group classes for many different skill levels, the studio caters to students’ goals during private training sessions in its cozy, sunlit space. No matter which type of instruction students receive, they typically experience a measurable increase in strength and coordination, and find themselves building the type of endurance and flexibility required to run a marathon en pointe.
