The Pilates Method studio is dedicated to furthering the growth of instructors and our clients through the classical method of Pilates. Providing the best Pilates has to offer using GRATZ equipment. After working 15 years at a large corportate fitness facility, July 1, 2016 I finally realized my dream of opening a studio. Located in downtown Birminghaman, a walkable, upscale suburb of Detroit Michigan. The studio is right next to a Swedish café and within walking distance of my house. While I love what Pilates does for the body and mind, I really enjoy nurturing the careers and inspiring others to become instructors to keep the method moving forward. As for my own growth in teaching, I give the most credit to the lovely, dancer, choreographer and physical therapist and Pilates instructor, Sonje Mayo. The stories of taking lessons with Joe Pilates in his later years are interesting and fantastic. Her passion and attention to detail of the classical method has profoundly elevated & inspired my career.

Pilates Education: I started my pilates education with a full and Comprehensive Stott certification and then obtained my classical certification through PEAK mentored by Sonjé Mayo. Over the years, as I became a teacher trainer with Peak, my passion for the classical method grew and took root. While at Peak, I have been lucky enough to be mentored by classically trained Sonje Mayo. Craving more classical training I have sought out conferences, workshops and lessons with Dana Santi, Jay Grimes, Mari Winsor, Pilatesology and many other wonderful instructors.
