We are excited to announce that our online Pilates scheduler, MindBody, is up and running. Pilates clients can now check their schedules, make or cancel appointments and even make payments online any time of the day. You can access MindBody through our website:

  • Go to
  • Click on the Pilates tab
  • Go into the class schedule and you will see 3 boxes across the top
  • Choose the button that best suits your needs.

We are most excited because of what this means for you. While some classes are typically full, cancellations happen.  If a class you want is full, you can register for the class and be wait listed.  We will then let you know if an opening occurs. The convenience is going to make your life so much easier! 

(Please remember that we require 24 hours notice for cancellations. Otherwise, you will be charged a punch). 


We have put everyone in the schedule through October 3rd based on your previous schedule. To schedule beyond October 3rd, follow the steps above. As always, we are here to answer questions and help you maneuver through the new system.

5 Essential Components for Shoulder Health 

by Allyson Friday, PT, DPT, OCS


As a PT, an athlete, a sloucher, and a former shoulder patient, I know a thing or two about shoulder injuries.  And If I could tell you the most important thing about the shoulder, I would.  But I can't, because there are many important things. The shoulder is often referred to as the "shoulder complex", and it's just that, complex. The design of the shoulder allows for a lot of motion, yet little stability. 


Which leads me to the first important thing - strengthening. Every injured shoulder needs strengthening. In fact, it's safe to say that every shoulder needs strengthening, injured or not. Proper strengthening is injury prevention. But you already know that - there are still 4 more essential components to shoulder rehab that you need to know.

 Pain Free Sleep                         

by Hilary Froman, PharmD


One thing is clear to all of us who have had shoulder injuries - shoulder pain and sleep don't mix. You can toss and turn for ages and not find a comfortable position, and catching some shut-eye can seem like a lost cause.


Insomnia happens to all of us occasionally. When you are recovering from an injury, sleep is essential, but often elusive. For those with shoulder injuries, having good sleep positioning strategies is essential for healing.   


First of all, don't 'tough it out.' Before worrying about sleep positions, get control over your pain. This is no time to test your pain threshold. Follow your prescribed icing and medication regimen. Pain is a big barrier to a good night's rest, so keep on top of the pain. Once you've addressed that, then you can figure out which sleep position to try. Here are a couple of ideas:
