Our Purpose is About You.
The perfect workout in the perfect environment, Pilates in the Pines is the epicenter for wellness and relaxation as you build a strong and flexible body.
Professional dancers have used Pilates for decades. Top athletes use it for strength, flexibility and injury prevention. Hollywood celebrities and supermodels use it to maintain beautiful physiques.
Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels, and performs. Working your body from the inside out, it builds strength in long, lean muscle mass, without excess bulk. This creates a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. Pilates also teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion. It can even help alleviate back pain.
Pilates is one of the safest workouts you can use. It’s so safe that it is used in physical therapy to rehabilitate injuries.
ALANA NORMAN, Master Pilates Teacher and Certified GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS®, and specialized Gyrotonic® equipment teacher. Alana brings more than 30 years of dedicated Pilates, wellness and medical experience to Pilates in the Pines. She began studying Pilates in the early 1970s under the tutelage of its premier disciples including Ron Fletcher, Bruce King, Romana Kryzanowska and Eve Gentry. She went on to graduate from the Chinese School of Medicine with an emphasis on neuromuscular, Swedish and deep tissue massage.
“My philosophy of looking at the whole person is founded in the neuromuscular retraining from the inside out that Pilates offers,” she says.
Most of the students that Alana trains suffer from some kind of condition or issue with their body, from stroke victims to athletes with sports injuries. The refinement of pure Pilates is not something Alana takes lightly. “Pilates is best under the instruction of an expert,” she says. “Our approach at Pilates in the Pines is classic and clinically safe.”
