Pilates for Life!
What meditation is to the soul, PILATES is to the body.
PATRICE DLUGOS offers Pilates mat classes and teaches privately at a number of locations right here in the Essex County area. She holds full certification in mat and apparatus training with Stott Pilates of Toronto, Canada and is a certified exercise specialist in pre- and post-natal exercise with the Center for Women’s Fitness of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Prior to her teaching career, she danced professionally on Broadway, in musical theatre, and as a Radio City Music Hall Rockette for many years. Given her background, she knows the importance of alignment and body mechanics to all types of movement.
Patrice creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere in which students can learn Pilates. She emphasizes strengthening of the deep stabilizer muscles of the body prompting students to use their minds and breathing to focus on achieving a great workout. Her mission: To help each student find and use their core muscles and then take that core connection into all of their activities whether they practice yoga, do sports, dance, or as they engage in everyday life activity. This focused approach to working out takes students away from the autopilot mind-set of exercise as escape and helps them to embrace the notion of exercise as experience!
