If you find a Pilates studio in your area, make certain that the teachers are certified and have serious references. A good formation takes years, and you don’t want a teacher who has taken one of the quickie training courses that seem to be flourishing in France. Ask how many hours they have spent in certification, how long they have been teaching, and if their training included sufficient anatomy training.
You can be assured that all of the teachers at the A-Lyne studio have been through the most rigorous certification that includes not only all of the classical Pilates exercises, but evolutions of those exercises as well as intensive anatomy courses. All of our teachers have their specialty, and they are trained to evaluate your particular issues and modify exercises for any injuries you might have.
Listed below are our teachers who offer lessons in English. To take a private course with one of our teachers,
please contact them directly by email.
The classes take place at:
Monday through Saturday
from 9:00 to 7:00pm

Quand elle a été diagnostiquée d’une spondyl arthrite ankylosante Sylvie a abandonné son métier, qui la maintenait assise derrière un bureau, pour une reconversion totale dans le Pilates.
En effet, le meilleur moyen de retarder et de combattre les symptones d’une telle maladie est d’offrir au corps le maximum d’activité et de mouvements. Si elle a eu l’audace d’écouter ses besoins vitaux physiques au détriment du reste c’est parce qu’après seulement quelque cours d’essais le Pilates s’est imposé comme une nécessité salvatrice, complémentaire avec sa passion de danse de Tango.
Après une formation auprès des riches enseignements de Martine Curtis Oakes, de Kelly Moriarty et de Greg Montean, Sylvie a obtenu son diplôme du Studio A-Lyne et de BalancedBody University. Cela ne la que plus conforté dans l’efficacité et les bienfaits de la pratique: apprendre à mieux bouger, de manière efficace pour renforcer le corps, augmenter la souplesse, corriger l’alignement postural, gagner en équilibre, tout en améliorant la coordination pour procurer un sentiment durable de bien-être.
