Co-owners Nicole Dessoye and Elizabeth (Liz) Donahue opened the studio back in August of 2004 after both teaching Pilates for a number of years at other studios. These two women decided they wanted to open a space of their own that had a safe and warm environment. In this I believe they succeed.

The group classes are intimate (there were only five of us in the Saturday morning beginning level Pilates mat class). In the hour long class, Liz was able to spend time with each student and was aware of any physical issues her continuing apprentices might have.
