About.com Readers’ Choice Award

Thanks to all our wonderful customers for pushing us over the edge into the winner’s circle of About.com’s Readers’ Choice Awards! We are very excited to have had two of our Reformers nominated for Best Pilates Reformer; both our Studio Reformer® and Allegro® Reformer were up for the honor, with the Studio Reformer taking the top spot. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Reformer Rockers

Coming soon… Reformer Rockers will “rock your (Reformer) world!” These ingenious additions to the bottom of your Reformer legs create a side to side rocking motion, making core engagement all the more necessary to maintain stability and alignment. Either gently rock, or more vigorously. It’s in the client’s control to determine the intensity of the rocking.

The Wedge

The Wedge is our newest positioning cushion that’s perfect for clients who have suffered from shoulder, neck or facial injuries, or who can’t lie supine due to dizziness or postural patterns. It has a unique shape that fits between the shoulder rests of any Balanced Body Reformer to support your client on a gentle incline.

We’re Green…and we like it that way!

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been recognized for our waste reduction efforts with our second straight Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) award! The WRAP awards are administered by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). Approximately 74 percent of our generated waste was recycled in 2010. We also made a successful push for the installation of a 20-acre solar panel field in the Depot Park, where we’re located. Thanks to this new solar panel field, 40 percent of our energy is solar.

Pilates on Tour - Phoenix

Come join us for our fourth annual rehab summit in Phoenix starting on April 1! Take your understanding of movement science and its application to Pilates to the next level with courses from the most innovative teachers in the field, including Brent Anderson, PhD, Sherri Betz, PT, Chrissy Romani-Ruby, MPT, Karen Clippinger, MSPE, Kristopher Bosch, DPT, Elizabeth Larkam, MA, and Madeline Black. The intersection of rehabilitation, movement sciences and Pilates continues to bring new insights and practical tools to clinical practice.
