All Pilates is not created equal. At Excel Pilates NoVA, we are committed to the integrity and effectiveness of the original Pilates Method of Body Conditioning. Our teachers are 2nd and 3rd generation Pilates instructors that have the highest level of qualification. They can teach anyone from the professional athlete to those simply looking to build strength and flexibilty.
Excel Pilates NoVA only offers private, duet or trio sessions. We provide Pilates training with the client’s specific goals and abilities in mind. Instead of getting lost in the crowd, you will get a workout specifically tailored to you.
Excel Pilates NoVA is fully equipped with Gratz equipment, the original manufacturer of Joe Pilates’s apparatus designs. If you are practicing Pilates, you should be practicing on the equipment created for it.
When I’m asked about my time as an apprentice I immediately respond with, “It was the best year of my life.” It was the year my mind connected to my body through movement. It was the year I uncovered certain movement patterns that I’m able to work on daily for my body to be as healthy, supple and aligned as possible – and now, I get to share and teach that to my clients.
One of the best years of my life was studying under Kerry DeVivo and Lesa McLaughlin in the Excel Pilates Teacher Training Program. Their extensive program completely immersed me in Pilates, something that I didn’t know I needed but would soon come to learn I couldn’t live without. As an introverted person, I did not realize how passionate I could be at teaching until I found something I believed so deeply in. As a ballet dancer, my peers and teachers physically saw differences in my body after training in Pilates and I owe it all to the Excel Pilates Teacher Training Program. Studying, observing, and training at Excel Pilates Annapolis breathed new life into me and I am so thankful for fortunately stumbling upon 2nd generation teachers that devote their time and work to staying true to Joesph Pilates’s original method
Pilates is the only exercise program I’ve found that I wanted to do consistently twice a week for eight years. I never make excuses not to go. Even when I arrive tired, I am energized and feeling better after the session. Alexandra and her team are non-judgmental and always ready to assess how I’m feeling and work with me from there. With Team Excel’s knowledge and experience, they can modify the program to meet the needs of your body at every session.
