Poplar Street Studio clients value being and feeling fit, and enjoy living life through the body. They like to move or they really want to learn how to move better. They are self-aware and self-responsible, and actively seek out information to assist them in staying happy and healthy. They understand how important it is to take care of their bodies, and they are curious about  movement education, however, most have never understood or felt the body-mind connection in quite the way it is taught at PSS.

PSS clients range in age from pre-teen to over 80. They are new or soon-to-be-Moms, dancers, yoga enthusiasts, gardeners, hikers, cyclists, tennis players, golfers, runners, equestrians, singers, musicians, artists, and writers, to name a few. Some are physically challenged at work (sitting at a desk, physical labor, or other) or by their daily activities, some are challenged by physical ailments and limitations, and some are recovering from an injury. All soon find the true power of their will, once it is directed towards alignment with the body’s vast, natural wisdom.

Most importantly, they desire profound, interesting, and practical information that can be easily integrated into their already full and busy lives. PSS offers them a simple, yet profound practice towards body-mind physical conditioning, injury prevention and recovery, chronic pain relief, and performance excellence. PSS clients come to know and understand that “pilates” is more than an exercise system and workout – it is a practice for body-mind balance, and both the novice mover and the elite athlete have much to gain at PSS.

Poplar Street Studio is their studio…and the education they receive at PSS helps them meet their goals, sooner than they think possible, and they have fun doing it! Visit the results page and read what clients are saying.


PSS also offers additional educational coursework for movement professionals who are ready to advance their careers, as well as for enthusiasts who seek information to deepen their personal practice. The Bodies Mind® Program of Study™, developed and directed by Carole Amend, offers a unique curriculum in pilates, somatic movement, embodiment, and communication. Movement teachers from all disciplines are among the students taking part in the BMPS events sponsored here at PSS.
