Classical Pilates in Bloomington, IN


Classical Pilates is Corrective Exercise

Sitting long hours?

  • Have long work hours weakened your back muscles?
  • Tired neck and shoulder muscles?
  • Not as strong as you used to be?

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

Classical Pilates Addresses Imbalance

  • Realign your body and find symmetry
  • Get stronger in your core
  • Enjoy your regular activities to the fullest

Pilates is efficient exercise that helps aches and pains go away. Consistent workouts will make you move and feel better. You can run that half marathon or jump rope without getting headaches!

How Do I Get Started?

  • Book a session
  • Work out, plan your next lesson or class
  • Finish feeling stretched, strengthened and mobilized
  • Face your day with mental clarity

Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.

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

— Susan Holewinski

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!!
