Strategic Pilates Studio is an upscale classical Pilates Studio in Longmont, Colorado offering high quality personalized instruction at affordable rates. Our focus is YOU, with a high priority on your body as an individual. Together we help you achieve precise alignment within movement.

We are uniquely different in many ways at Strategic Pilates Studio. The ‘in studio’ class size, now limited to only 2 clients in the studio for your 70 minute semi-private session (duet). We also offer 60 and 90 minute private sessions.

We strategically designed longer quality sessions because we feel it is important to take time to teach each client ‘why’ exercises are chosen for their body. This is not just choreography, it is a precise methodology with healthy intention for your body. In addition, an emphasis placed on individualizing optimal alignment of form for each body and correct breathing techniques. Strategic Pilates Studio incorporates use of the Pilates apparatus as a whole system.

It is our desire to have clients to utilize the entire classical system of the Pilates method, experiencing the whole studio. Each equipment session has an addition of mat and other apparatus included. Our clients don’t stop moving, the session themes are created around individual body needs and supporting apparatus is selected from the entire studio during the session. This helps to cultivate awareness and enhance connection in the body. We emphasize teaching and mastering the necessary skills, layering one upon another to more safely advance into the next level of difficulty in the classical Pilates exercise order.

At Strategic Pilates, we are not as tightly scheduled as most studios. Our classes are scheduled with a large block of time between them. This allows for optimal sanitization of the studio. While we respect your time, we are fairly relaxed and flexible with our own time.

At Strategic Pilates Studio, we strive to teach precise Pilates. We see clients as wonderful unique individuals, that we have the opportunity to help reach their optimal functional movement potential. Together, teacher and client work as a team to create uniform development in the client bodies to reach realistic healthy goals.

Before you go… think about the extended session time idea in mind for a bit, while you browse through my website and compare what you’ve experienced elsewhere. Important considerations and comparisons list: session length, class size, pricing, and where and how was the instructor trained, years of teaching experience and 3rd party nationally recognized certification, value minutes of high quality instruction with use of classical studio apparatus throughout the session.
