Classical Pilates in Bloomington, IN


Stay Fit and Pain-Free with Classical Pilates

Sitting long hours?

  • Has cramming for deadlines weakened your back muscles?
  • Tired neck and shoulder muscles from staring at the screen?
  • Not as strong as you used to be?

A weak core and poor posture will cause pain in your neck and shoulders. Prolonged stress to your spine can result in herniated or slipped discs. If you are working or exercising with wonky alignment, you are setting yourself up for chronic pain and invasive surgery down the line.

Above all, learn how to breathe correctly.

— Joseph Pilates


Classical Pilates gives you a series of simple (but not easy!) exercises that mobilize your spine and help you breathe better. In doing these exercises, you become more limber and agile. Consistent practice brings you pretty good results. Diving into the entire system with gusto yields awesome results and dramatic change. You will accomplish more than you thought possible and feel empowered to try new things. By moving your body, you move your mind. Dare to outperform yourself!

You are only as young

as your spine is flexible

Anita Park founded Explore Pilates out of her love for classical Pilates and always diving deeper into her practice. A native of Canada, she came to Bloomington many moons ago for her Master’s degree at the Jacobs School of Music and has a PhD in Hispanic Literature. She is an Advanced graduate of The Pilates Center, Boulder, and continues to learn more about classical Pilates through lessons and workshops. She’s taught Pilates for ten years. She loves to cook and do anything crafty when she’s not doing Pilates. Anita lives with her husband and daughter, and a room full of Pilates equipment and pianos.

Every moment of our life can be

the beginning of great things.

I am a physical therapist and was struggling with back pain, unable to run or walk without my SI going out. I had two kids and two knee surgeries in the last few years. I started working with Anita and after a few months, I feel stronger and I am now jogging over three miles without pain. I feel the best I have in over eight years thanks to Pilates with Anita!!

— Marissa Schaeuble

I had shoulder pain on and off before I started Pilates with Anita. Thanks to her reminders, I am now more aware of tension in my shoulders. I think about this outside of class. After months of doing Pilates, my shoulder pain is gone.
