  • I’ve been taking Pilates since last September. The workouts are fun to do. I feel proud that I’ve regained the agility I was losing after sitting all day in front of a computer. I plan to continue doing Pilates for the rest of my life. In fact, I see it as a means of keeping people fit and healthy long into those sunset years. It’s amazingly effective, yet it’s gentle and protective. Body Resource Studio has an endless repertoire of exercises to help whatever muscle group needs special attention.Jayne MacAuley

JoyAnn passionately believes that people have the ability to resource from within, to re-educate their minds and bodies. Pilates is for everyone, of all ages, and from all walks of life, that would like to feel strong, with increased stamina.

Truly, JoyAnn believes that Pilates can offer you endless possibilities for improving your wellness.
