I exercised regularly for many years in a very traditional way. I was encouraged to try a Pilates class taught by Karen which I did. That was about six years ago. Nothing has been the same since. I have never been in better shape nor liked my workouts more than I do now. Karen knows proper form and through genuine caring guides her students through these workouts at a pace that always feels appropriate! This is a lifelong routine for me now!

I’m in love with the warmth of this beautiful space. The loft and the foundry are stunningly inviting, the layout is beautiful, so much character in both spots. The fabulous instruction is just a small portion of the enriching benefits received from practicing here. Thanks Beth for having such wonderful vision, I LOVED working with Karen today. This place is a true gem. ❤️
I have been taking Pilates at various locations since 2003. I was fortunate enough to finally settle on the Pilates loft in 2011. Pilates is the best gift you can give your mind, body, and spirit. All the instructors are knowledgeable and caring. Both locations are wonderful and convenient. Having one-on-one Pilates sessions with Karen for 3 years (and Beth on occasion) now has definitely kept me alive! As a Zumba instructor, I definitely need the stretching and core strengthening and alignment that Pilates offers. I believe that EVERYONE should try Pilates and make it part of their regular routine, and I HIGHLY recommend the Pilates loft! Pilates is for EVERYONE! I know it will be in my routine forever.
Beth Elkins has been my Pilates instructor on a weekly basis for over 10 years. She has an instinctual understanding of the many possible exercises and variations so that in my time with her, no two workout sessions have been alike. The one hour classes are always challenging and include exercises that work all parts of the body. As an instructor she helps you maintain correct form and breathing, which is important in getting the benefits from any exercise. I have three bulging lumbar discs and working out with Beth has helped me maintain strength and flexibility. Beth is great to work with and gets me to work hard while not feeling pressured or doing an exercise I’m not capable of.
I have been going to the Pilates loft for just over three years now. For the record, I have never been someone who’s looked forward to exercise. Working with Beth has changed that. Beth and her instructors have an intuitive method that both meets their clients where they are, and challenges them as well. I have taken private, semi-private and group classes and loved them all. The Pilates Loft is a supportive environment in which to explore your personal fitness goals and strengthen both the mind and body alike. I could not be happier!
After my first class at the Pilates Loft (12 years ago!) with certified trainer Beth Elkins, I knew that I had found the right place to get the results I wanted. Whether in small groups, i.e. Mat and Tower classes, or a private session, special attention is extended to newcomers and veterans alike, and there is always encouragement to be better and stronger. The reward is a sleek, lean, and toned body with awesome abs!
