"If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old; if it’s completely flexible at 60, you are young…the only real guide to your true age lies not in years, or how old you THINK you feel, but…by the degree of natural and normal flexibility enjoyed by your spine throughout life."
Joseph Pilates


Pilates is a method of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s that strengthens and tones the entire body. The movements are flowing, precise, energizing, and challenging, and rely on a “mind-body” connection. It’s this mind-body connection that makes Pilates effective and defines what Pilates truly is. As Joseph Pilates once wrote, Pilates is “the complete coordination of the mind, body, and spirit”!


The Pilates Method and Pilates equipment will strengthen and tone the entire body, with an emphasis on the core muscles (primarily the abdominals and inner thighs to support the back). It is not uncommon for pilates students to relearn correct posture, realign to proper biomechanics patterns and gain inches in height after only a few months of regular Pilates practice!

Today's featured teacher is Judy Fink of Mountain Laurel Pilates. Judy's fully equipped studio is located in Hawley, Pennsylvania.

What types of clients do you see on a weekly basis?
I see quite a range of clients. I have clients in their 30’s that have come to me to get stronger and more flexible. I have people coming in with back issues and want to strengthen their abdominals and find out it is a total body strengthening! I have post surgery clients that have been recommended by their PT. Golfers that want to improve their game. People of all types and ages come. I have one client who is 77 years old. She does Pilates and Yoga and Walks. She is in awesome shape! I want to be just like her at 77!

What do you most enjoy about teaching?
I enjoy most seeing people make progress. It can be the simplest change. It’s like the client gets this look on their face or sometimes they will even say “I think I'm getting it” after their 3rd or 4th visit.I also like seeing someone who thought a certain movement was just impossible and one day they can do it!!!
