Two young Pilates devotees, both with a spiritual, mind-body edge in common, have recently opened studios in uptown Manhattan, with Westside Pilates launching in fall of 2013 on the Upper West Side followed by Kevyn Zeller Pilates on the Upper East last month.
Westside Pilates was founded by 28-year-old Adrianne Yurgosky, who’s been teaching for seven years, trained at Power Pilates, and New York Pilates Studio with Brett Howard. She’s also an Institute of Integrative Nutrition-educated holistic health coach. Her studio offers one-on-one and duo 55-minute classes in Reformer, chair, towers, at a modest price of $90 and $60.
“In my own experience, Pilates was a form of healing, and I always felt I was in a safe environment when I could dedicate time to myself without the normal New York City interruptions,” says Yurgosky, who suffered multiple back injuries in her teens. “Pilates is not just a form of fitness. It’s more a way of becoming aware of your habits, keeping in touch with your body, and building strengthen and flexibility to alleviate pain.”
