At Dawn Pilates Studio, our mission is to help students achieve their fitness goals, safely and effectively.  Using both classical and contemporary methods, Dawn Pilates Studio teaches safe methods to increase core strength, and improve posture - all in support of long term health and wellness! 


A time-tested form of exercise, Pilates uses the principles of concentration, breath, control, centering, precision,  and flow. These principles, in conjunction with proven, movement-based bio mechanics, maximize the ability to achieve fitness one’s  goals. “In ten sessions you will FEEL the difference, in twenty sessions you will SEE the difference, and in thirty sessions you will have a whole new body.”  - Joseph Pilates  


Generally, physical lifestyles today lack balance and a mind-body connection. Pilates builds strong physical foundations that become the core of increased self-awareness. Toning and strengthening muscles, preventing injuries, increasing mobility, and learning to properly stabilize your joints are essential to health and wellness.


We never settle for a one-size-fits-all approach. Bodies are not alike, and our diverse fitness classes and instruction are tailored to enable our clients to achieve their fitness goals.

When I went to my very first Pilates class my body felt every muscle that I remember using from when I was a gymnast. I stuck with Pilates for 30 days and felt stronger than ever. Now that I am Comprehensively certified to teach Pilates, I hope to leave my clients feeling happy, stronger, motivated, and like they cant get enough. One of my favorite reasons for being an instructor is watching my clients achieve goals they once were not able to in the beginning of their Pilates journey. When I am not teaching Pilates, i am taking care of my two boys, hanging out with my family, practicing Pilates at home, and attending school. 

Now an official TRX training Facility!
