Bluming Studio, located in a beautiful warehouse in Williamsburg, has achieved the trifecta of wellness, by aligning body, mind and soul. Upon entering the Pilates studio for the first time, I instantaneously felt a sense of calm and centeredness, and knew that this was a place I could come to release stress and tension, while simultaneously strengthening my whole body.
One of the primary benefits of a regular Pilates practice, is that its movements by nature, result in a lengthening and stretching of the muscles, as opposed to other forms of conventional exercise which often have the undesired effect of creating bulky muscles.
My instructor Elisa, owner of the namesake studio, is a true Pilates expert, with over a decade of experience in the industry. Her patience with me, as a beginner, is unwavering. She explains every movement with precision, and encourages me to get each part of the sequence just right, before moving on to the next task. After just a few sessions I’ve noticed visible results in both my posture and my physique. My skinny jeans seem to slide on easier and I definitely feel tighter and more toned overall.
Although it’s often challenging work, and some days my burning muscles are begging to be put out of their misery, I thoroughly enjoy it. Knowing that I’m getting killer results is enough to keep me coming back! It doesn’t hurt that the studio has an amazing vibe…light, bright and airy, with top-notch equipment and instructors with the most positive and encouraging attitude. These are just a few of the things that set Bluming Studio apart from the rest.
Not limited to merely Pilates, other forms of exercise movement are offered at the studio. Gyrotonics, as well as MIGUN massage make great additions to a well-balanced and restorative training program.
After an hour on the Reformer machine, I walk out of the studio feeling as though I’ve actually grown a few inches taller… core tight, body aligned and mind focused… ready to take on the world!
