Excercise at Time for Pilates

Starting from Private Session

As everyone has a unique face and fingerprints, our bodies are also unique. It is important to find a mentor who will help you understand the uniqueness of your own body. There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach to personal fitness. At Time for Pilates our focus is you!

At Time for Pilates, we believe the foundation of exercise is to master the basic control and understanding of your own body. To focus on you, we start everyone on a private session no matter how much experience you have. 

After establishing a baseline through initial private sessions, you may join group sessions. By then, your Time for Pilates instructor will understand your body, your habits, and your goals—so we can provide you with effective support and guidance during group sessions.

What is Pilates

Pilates is an exercise method that aims to strengthen muscles while improving postural alignment and flexibility. The technique brings awareness of the body to move more efficiently and gracefully, and it strengthens and stabilizes your body. Pilates develops the body through muscular effort that stems from the core.  


Learning efficient body movement by Pilates, people can more readily avoid injury and are more likely to perform at a higher physical level than before.


Based on the individual's body condition, Pilates allows you to exercise effectively without having unnecessary pressure. Pilates works for all ages, all physical types, all body conditions, and all people for any athletic level. So, you may continue Pilates as long as you like no matter when you start. Pilates is a lifelong exercise that everyone can enjoy. 

What's Pilates?

I never thought I would do Pilates, now I can’t live without it.  I have always had back issues and Pilates has strengthened my body and improved my flexibility.  Yumiko is very attentive and highly experienced Pilates instructor.  I love all her classes so much I even invested in a reformer machine so that I can continue my reformer classes with her via zoom.

Under Yumiko’s precise and patient instruction in Pilates I have learned to connect my body to my mind in a way I never have before. I began Pilates with Yumiko in my mid 60’s after many years of personal training and have learned a different language of fitness developing my core strength and flexibility.
Yumiko has a keen eye for the precise small adjustments necessary for effective Pilates exercise. Over the past four years, I have been challenged, encouraged, and gained muscle strength in her studio and her remote zoom classes. I recommend her highly!

Yumiko is an excellent  instructor; she’s a stickler about form, mixes up her classes for variety and manages to keep her classes challenging.  I’ve been a client for 5 years and I always look forward to the next class.
