Pilates is intelligent, functional exercise developed by Joseph Pilates for attaining optimal, lifelong well-being. Pilates lengthens and strengthens muscles simultaneously, helping to create an energized, pain-free, flexible and strong body.
It is as much for the mind as it is for the body. When clients learn to fully concentrate while executing each exercise with precision and control, the body will dramatically improve.
Yamuna Body RollingA therapeutic approach to stuck joints and tight overused muscles, Yamuna Body Rolling is a unique method that creates and sustains proper posture, flexibility, strength and alignment of the body. Using specialized balls, routines are performed that stimulate the release of muscular origins, tendons and muscle bellies, resulting in lengthened and relaxed muscles and open joint capsules.

Don’t be surprised to find our “studio dog” Mya when you come into Esprit Pilates. A Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, she was rescued by Sharla six years ago and loves to come to work with her. On days that she is in the studio she’ll be in the back ready to offer a belly rub or a head pat to anyone who is willing.
Hear from our amazing clients!
I have seen a dramatic improvement in my posture, muscle tone and weight since I began taking classes with Sharla. I’ve noticed I have fewer aches and pains from sitting behind a desk all day. But my favorite thing is the small classes and the sense of camaraderie. I always feel like I get personal attention and it’s like catching up with friends at the end of the work day.
There are other studios that offer Pilates and Booty Barre but Esprit Pilates is the only one at which I not only get a great workout but also feel part of a large, wonderfully diverse family that cares for its members.
Working with Sharla has been a place of healing for over 20 years! Pilates, Reformer and Yamuna Body Rolling are enhanced with incredible teaching, observing and listening with a kind heart.
