Harmony Studios Pilates' mission is to share our knowledge of Joseph and Clara Pilates' work as it was originally intended, coupled with the passion to explore and integrate the latest developments in movement science.  In addition to Pilates Coursework, we offer a comprehensive center where students can continue their learning process, in house, through self-practice, observation and practice teaching.  We believe in mentorship and guiding each student to find their unique voice throughout the process. 


Our goal is to nurture thoughtful Pilates professionals who feel confident in their base of knowledge in order to plan and begin a successful career.  We all grow by learning, and our aim is to provide continuing education to support and inspire instructors throughout their careers.
