Welcome to Novi Pilates Studio!

Whatever your goals, Pilates can and will change your body.

Maybe you crave long, lean muscles or wish to alleviate back or neck pain. Maybe you just want more energy to do the things you love. Whether you are super-fit, semi-fit, or soon-to-be fit, the many promises of Pilates are real. Consistent practice of Pilates, however, is essential to achieving the results you want. There are many Pilates studios, but at Novi Pilates Studio, our exceptionally well-trained instructors elevate your Pilates practice from good to truly great.

 

About Novi Pilates Studio 

Novi Pilates Studio is a home based studio and our aim is to create a positive, non-intimidating environment in which your individual concerns are heard and addressed. Whether you're a competitive athlete, busy executive, sometime-athlete, or confirmed spectator, our Pilates instructors will help you design a personal fitness program that meets your needs and budget. Our instructors not only have a comprehensive knowledge of the Pilates method, but also the skill and enthusiasm to effectively communicate their knowledge to you. Our clients find that it is this clarity and excellence in teaching Pilates that makes it easier for them to learn the technique and, therefore, easier to attain results.

 

At Novi Pilates Studio, our goal is for you to achieve Joseph Pilates' definition of physical fitness:

'The attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body, with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous…zest and pleasure.'

About Our Approach

Novi Pilates Studio believes in the STOTT Method ®, a systematic and integrative approach to Pilates.

 

By systematic, we mean that our instructors teach a prescribed system of Pilates exercises that lead clients from the Beginner System, through the Intermediate System, and eventually to the Advanced System.

 

And by integrative, we mean that at Novi Pilates we will use any of the Pilates apparatus or props that would be needed to progress you through a solid knowledge base and strength as you advance at the most appropriate time.

 

The way we teach Pilates at Novi Pilates is rooted in this approach:

  • By teaching you the original exercises in the original order, you learn Pilates that maintains the integrity of the Stott method.
  • By teaching you a progression of exercises where one exercise or workout does not exist in isolation from the next, you learn Pilates more easily and safely – and, therefore, progress and attain results more quickly.

And by integrating multiple apparatus in every workout, you understand how each piece works synergistically to facilitate greater levels of awareness and fitness.

About the Owner

 

I am a STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor and I can honestly say this is the best career I have ever had, it is challenging and fulfilling all at the same time. I have been teaching in the fitness industry for quite some time now and I just love it. 

As a businesswoman, selling consulting services for Human Resources Management Systems, I was into a sedimentary lifestyle sitting behind my desk and the exercise I was getting, was moving my mouse, using my keyboard, talking a lot and very out of shape. Due to a major accident I found myself in the hospital for almost two months and a wheel chair for over a year. It was a long recovery back to the walking world, not being sure I would even get there. I then had a bout with Cancer.

Needless to say, I realized the importance of health and the lack of it. I needed to be healthier, happier, stronger and self-sufficient. Through my therapy, I found Pilates. As I searched for answers to bring me to a point of strength and movement again, Pilates kept coming to the forefront of what I was looking for to be part of a new journey into a life of health, and strength that I had been searching for. As my strength and normal range of abilities grew, so did my love of Pilates. And that is where the old story ends and the new story begins.

With each teacher-training course I took, my enthusiasm to learn more grew, and with that, the desire to share this passion with others took hold. Too often, I am aware that many are really not acquainted with Pilates and all that it can do to help a person and a body achieve. This is where my desire for Novi Pilates Studio became the new dream. You can start from a place like where I was, or start from an accomplished athlete, and with either; we can challenge you and take you to a new and improved body you will be excited about. I have now lost over 150 pounds and can walk the whole mall, so you can imagine how I now feel. With that, Welcome to Novi Pilates Studio.
