studio is the only fully-equipped Pilates studio in
Central NJ. We are located at 53 Mountain Boulevard in Warren Township
and can be easily reached from all points in New Jersey (see
and New York City. Our name
reflects our philosophy: we offer our clients nothing less than superb
as it was originally created by
Joseph Pilates and
on the equipment he designed to optimize his technique.
| In our studio you start with an
initial assessment. This is a special introductory session. We will
examine your history and ask about your personal goals. It is especially
important to mention to us if you have had any injuries, car accidents,
or chronic musculoskeletal conditions, such as a "frozen shoulder" or
low back pain. One of the major strengths of Pilates is the ability to
modify exercises to focus improvement on the areas of injury.
We will then guide you
through a Pilates workout where we will assess your physical condition.
This process will enable us to design a program to best suit your needs.
After this, each session is by appointment and is one full hour long.
You will continue to be guided, monitored and assessed on an individual
basis. In the studio we perform some exercises on the mat and some on
equipment. We emphasize "core stabilization" which is essential in
giving support to the joints and forms the basis of your strength as
well as your back care. As appropriate, we will work on strength,
flexibility, posture, stamina, control and body awareness using a
variety of imaginative and invigorating exercises that Pilates is famous
We at Premier Pilates & Yoga work at reprogramming body patterns, more or less re-educating
your muscle memory. Just like when you are learning a new language, the
best method is to be exposed to it for long periods of time and as
frequently as possible. With Pilates, we are not only adding new
patterns to the bodies' memory but trying to discard old ones. For that
reason, we encourage from the very first session for clients to come in
at least twice a week, to derive as much benefit as possible from this
Finally, one of the best
things about Pilates conditioning is that the range and number of
exercises actually increases as you continue your study. In addition,
there is a myriad of variations on many of the individual exercises. To
progress to these more difficult, more intricate movement patterns, your
body and mind must acquire a thorough understanding of the simpler
exercises. Changes in physical appearance take time and consistency.
Many clients look to Pilates for a change in their physical appearance and tension
relief. These are the things that you will see, feel and notice quickly
in your every
day life. And the more regular you are about your training, the sooner you
will see drastic improvement in these areas.
We believe that Pilates should be
challenging but fun and spiritually
invigorating for all clients. Deborah is highly committed to her clients and works hard to
accommodate their busy lives. At the same time she expects dedication
from them and a serious commitment to improving how they feel, how they
function and how they relate to the world.
