Best Pilates studio in Portland 6/16/2006

This is the finest Pilates studio I've been to in Portland. The private lessons are the best your money can buy, and if you're short on cash you can get private lessons from an apprentice - which are almost as good - at a huge discount. Instructors are friendlier here than at other studios somehow, and the wood floors and old world Victorian charm make the place feel cozier than anything else around. I've been doing Pilates for years, and the instructors here seem to be more knowledgable and competent than any others I know of. more

Pappadams and Pilates 3/24/2006

Two of my favorite things in life. However, I can enjoy neither simultaneously. And it's the first of three reasons why I'm looking for another Pilates studio. Located next to Plainfield's Mayur Restaurant, wafts of Panch Phora break the mind-body connection, diverging thoughts from inhale/exhale to imbibe/devour. Next reason is the third floor mat class studio presents an awkward and restrictive space for groups larger than six people. Expect obscured views to your instructor and exchanging bumps with limbs belonging to your mat class neighbor. And finally if curry and crowded rooms don't deter you, than be prepared to bring your own mat. When I've been instructed to take the flight position (head on the mat, lifting your head slowly, feeling the space btwn your shoulders opening) I find it impossible to ignore the studio provided mats steamy stench of sweaty breath left behind by previous Pilates lovers. Pros: friendly, location, group class schedule Cons: space for mat classes, cleanliness/hygiene, ventilation more

Bodies in Balance has helped me to find my core muscles, improve my posture and give my body definition. Very professional and dynamic staff. I prefer my private workouts but hve tried the mat classes- hard to beat the individual attention. Highly reccommend!!!! Pros: parking more
