called his method Contrology (the mind controls the body), and he called the movements corrective exercises. Many people live life with imbalances that can cause pain, weakness, stiffness, disease, low energy, and a multitude of other issues. At Strong Body Pilates we balance out the body through Contrology, using the exercises developed by Joe Pilates and the highest quality apparatus, built for Joe by Gratz.
Other benefits of Pilates include: improved balance, coordination, sense of self-awareness, improved confidence, and so much more!
I have been working with Nicole for 10 years and has saved my life. I had back problems for many years and tried physical therapy, walking, riding my bike and walking a dog twice a day. I was having more pain doing less physically. When I met Nicole I could barely sit up on the Reformer and had no strength. I felt an immediate response and I got better as time went on. I had back surgery in 2016 and work with Nicole 2x/week. She is the best! She understands the body, how to modify and fit to the individual, for maximum results. She is professional, focuses on each person that she teaches, and gives a complete workout. Pilates has sustained my interest, enthusiasm and is very therapeutic after all of these years, even at the ripe age of 82.
I have been a regular student at Strong Body Pilates since June 2015. My experience with Nicole and my current instructor Roderick has been fabulous. I have noticed wonderful changes, both physical and mental. Nicole was my initial instructor and motivated me to push forward with three weekly sessions with Roderick, who showed me what my body is capable of. The studio is pristine, the staff professional, and I have been injury-free the entire year. I am committed to continuing the practice of Pilates as the basis of my overall health regimen!
Nicole focuses on balancing the body to be aligned, strong, and flexible. She uses the amazing apparatus Joseph Pilates developed to give what the body in front of her needs.

Nicole still trains as a student, to further her knowledge of the method, to bring the best to her clients. Read more on Nicole's qualifications and history.
Keion embodies inspiration, levelheadedness, knowledge—and perhaps even a bit of levity—to share the Pilates method with others. She discovered Pilates in 2004, as a long-distance runner looking to prevent injury and in 2010 started training to become a teacher.
She is a graduate of THE WORK™, a rigorous and highly exclusive continuing education program for seasoned Pilates teachers, led by program director and first generation teacher Jay Grimes, and Sandy Shimoda, owner of world-renown Vintage Pilates. In 2017, Keion also joined the illustrious teaching staff at Vintage Pilates and continues her own practice and teacher education under the guidance of both Jay and Sandy.

Teresa walked into her first Pilates studio 7 years ago and was thrilled by the many positive changes Pilates made in her life. She never felt stronger, more centered, and knew she wanted to share this with others. Teresa thinks making your body stronger is serious work but that it should be fun as well. When you work with Teresa, she promises some sweating, maybe laughing, but most importantly that you will leave feeling great. She loves working with the very beginner, those who have fallen off the fitness wagon, and athletes as well.

Laura's interest in Pilates began in 2004, in Seattle. Shortly after beginning to practice Pilates she became pregnant, and continued Pilates throughout. Pilates helped Laura regain strength and mobility after several injuries and major surgeries. Today Laura feels stronger, more flexible and more coordinated than ever in her life.
Thank You ...
