Ortho-Bionomy® is a gentle, non invasive form of bodywork that re-educates the body by facilitating its self corrective reflexes to find balance and ease.  This method, developed by an osteopathic physician Dr. Arthur Pauls, allows the practitioner to gently and effectively boost the body's ability to self-correct.  

We offer 60 minute and 90 minute sessions at the studio facilitated by our certified practitioner, Patty Thomas.  Please contact the studio for more information or to book a session.

Core Barre - Smart Movement®

Teacher Training or Small Group Sessions

CORE BARRE is a classical system of movement designed to create strength, flexibility and a balanced body. It is based on elements of Pilates, Ballet, and Athletic Conditioning and consists of high energy, low impact and fat burning exercises. 


The CORE BARRE movements exercise our bodies in such a manner that does not cause injury or further promote imbalances. Rather it strengthens all muscles and re-programs the body to move in the way it was naturally designed to. 


CORE BARRE participants quickly learn that engaging in a workout or class exercise does not have to mean ' no-pain, no-gain'. In fact, movements in CORE BARRE exercises are designed to be effortless, graceful, and energy generating, creating a meaningful and purposeful rhythm that is attuned to our bodies and surroundings.


We provide instructor training in the CORE BARRE System of Smart Movement® exercise modality for teacher training and continuing education.


CORE BARRE and it's complimentary workshops for continuing education make up  the Systems of Smart Movement® and offer intelligent and exciting programming choices for small group settings as well as private instruction.

What is the Art of Smart Movement®?

'Smart Movement® is an exercise system that is efficient, not wasteful.  It is constructive, not destructive.  It is informed, purposeful, precise, artful and well balanced!  It creates an awareness for mind and body and one that is rewarding to both the teacher and the participant.'
