The Pilates Method, GYROTONIC® Exercise, and Functional Training

Vital Body Studio is a therapeutic exercise and holistic fitness studio specializing in the Pilates method, the GYROTONIC® EXPANSION SYSTEM, and in functional resistance training. We are dedicated to assisting our clients in reawakening to the joy of moving in a strong, energized and mobile body for years to come.

Injury Prevention

Do you hike, bike, run, garden, dance, kettle bell, dragon boat, lift grocery bags, ice skate, play golf…? Pilates, Gyrotonic®, and functional training will assist you in moving injury free for the long term.

Injury Rehabilitation

With over 15 years of experience working with people recovering from a wide variety of injuries and bio-mechanical issues, at VBS we can assist you in returning to healthy movement with care and precision.

Core Strength

Your “Core” is your foundation of strength, postural support, and efficient, practical mobility.  At VBS we assist you in building deep, integrated core strength, not superficial, surface layer abdominal strength like many other exercise systems.

Mobility and Flexibility

It’s not just about touching your toes, it’s about spinal mobility, joint articulation, muscle and connective tissue “glide” and full body fluid movement patterns.

Functional Strength

If your goal is to lift a 200lb barbell over your head from a squatting position, try other systems of exercise.  If your goal is full body, integrated, intrinsic, real world strength, a whole body systematic approach is best.  Pilates, Gyrotonic®, and functional training excel in this regard.

Postural Support

Our body’s skeletal structure must be aligned with precision, with deep intrinsic muscle (joint stabilizers) activation, and with integrated core strength.  At VBS we will help you realign and maintain your skeletal architecture.
