Making connections. Building a healthier you.

Don’t ever give up on your body! Joint replacements, multiple surgeries, age — Paragon Pilates will help keep you moving! Thank you for increasing my strength and flexibility, and teaching me smart body mechanics. I am a new woman!

– C. F.

As a busy mom, I need to make the most of an hour away from work and kids. Paragon is a happy place to go for a 'mom break.' You always feel energized at the end of each session.

– P. G.

After a few months of therapy at Paragon, I have regained 85% of my left arm movement and improved my golf game by cutting down on the size of my swing. Thanks Paragon!

– G. C.

What I appreciate most about Paragon is how careful my instructors are with my body, gently working within my own physical parameters to create a healthier me.

– S. D.

My six months at Paragon have resulted in a smaller waistline, better posture, more flexibility, and many compliments stating how healthy I look.

Now that I have returned to dance, I am stronger and more flexible than ever, and I owe much of my success to the wonderful people who work at Paragon.

Bodhi Suspension Training: Comprehensive
September 20-22, 2019

Balanced Body brings the precision and movement principles of Pilates to suspension training with the Bodhi Suspension System™. Leaning into the ropes takes the body out of alignment with gravity causing the core stability muscles to fire and developing integrated, whole body strength and flexibility. Bodhi’s four points of suspension maximize strength training and enhance proprioception while providing endless opportunities for creativity. Learn and practice Bodhi exercises in each position and discover how easy it is to design and deliver dynamic classes using the tracks of the Balanced Body Programming System. The comprehensive course includes exercises and variations in every position as well as the Balanced Body Movement Principles to help you understand the purpose of each exercise and how to regress, progress and modify for clients at any level of ability.

Prerequisite: None / Open to Everyone
