A NEW YOU BEGINS AT
CHESAPEAKE PILATES CENTER
Owner Stefanie O’Rourke
We follow the Classical Pilates system, honoring the way Joseph Pilates taught his system of balancing and corrective exercises, as well as the way his First Generation Teachers taught, following the heritage and tradition of true Pilates. There is no perfection in Pilates, only progression. Once you achieve basic movements with control, you progress to more complex exercises, focusing on alignment to create balance, strength, and flexibility.
