Get Your Shine On




At Shine Pilates Lex, we believe ALL bodies can benefit from Reformer Pilates.  Pilates was started by Joseph Pilates as a mind-body connected way of movement that will lengthen, strengthen and stabilize your muscles, especially the small ones that facilitate larger muscle movements.  With consistent practice, we promise you will see results. 

“You will feel better in ten sessions, look better in twenty sessions, and have a completely new body in thirty sessions”
                                                                                       – Joseph Pilates

Our studio is purposefully small.  We want each client to feel special and unique…because you are!  The intimate space helps us to get to know each of the students personally: their likes, dislikes, and any pertinent body history.  Being small enables us to accommodate a variety of medical issues/conditions.  If you have special instructions from a physician, physical therapist, occupational therapist, etc., we will include those into your sessions.  You never have to worry about being over your head; we structure our classes to include all fitness levels.


Ready to get started?  We recommend booking our three initial private sessions so we can acclimate you to the Pilates method, vocabulary and equipment.  Don’t worry, there won’t be a test!  These three sessions will help us get to know you and your body so you can achieve maximum results. 


Don’t let uncertainty about Pilates hold you back from experiencing this life-changing method of fitness that makes you feel like you are doing something good for your body rather than punishing it.  If you have further questions, please reach out, we would be glad to answer them. 

“Change happens through movement and movement heals.”
                                                                                       – Joseph Pilates

Pilates Class on Reformers




"I came to Pilates later in life and found a home at Shine Pilates Lexington!  In my almost three years as a client, I have gained strength, developed balance, and toned muscles I didn't know I had.  I've also discovered new friends, of different ages and abilities, who share my belief that humor conquers all!  Shine Pilates Lexington's instructors are warm, compassionate, encouraging, professional, and extremely knowledgeable.  I highly recommend this lovely studio."
