We are centrally located in the Myers Park neighborhood of Charlotte just minutes from Uptown, Dilworth, Southpark and Plaza Midwood. Parking is available directly in front of our studio as well as on the side streets adjacent to our building.
We offer personalized movement sessions designed for clients who prefer to work privately, one on one, with an instructor. We are serious about performing the exercises with careful attention to proper form and intention so that our clients always obtain the greatest possible benefits from each class.
Our private sessions are truly private. There is one instructor and one client in the studio for the duration of your lesson in order to minimize distractions and keep the focus on your movement practice.
