Physical fitness reflects itself in a coordinated and balanced unity of body, mind, and spirit. By recognizing the mental functions of the mind and the physical limitations of the body, so that complete coordination between the mind and body may be achieved. All muscles work in synchronized patterns. Synchronizing mind & body is a basic principle of how to be a human being & how to use your sense perceptions, your mind & your body together.

East Side Balance Austin Pilates studio was founded by Gary Ames and his partner Linda Dumont with a mission to apply the health benefits of Pilates to improve your overall well-being and to counter the variety of physical strains you experience in your daily life.

Because each of us has a unique lifestyle, it's important to customize your Pilates exercise program to fit your needs.  Some of us are office workers, who spend much of our day at a desk or commuting in a car. Others are accomplished athletes and dancers, who spend hours in intensive physical training. And there are those of us who are new moms or retirees whose age, movements and surroundings put very different strains on our bodies. Over time, our environments can cause unique imbalances in the body that cause pain, discomfort or limited movement.

At East Side Balance Austin Pilates studio, we help identify the Pilates exercise movements that are ideal for helping you overcome your unique imbalances. Our instructors take you step-by-step through a combination of movements and exercises that are right for you - speeding you on your way to living a better, healthier and happier life. We offer a complete Pilates session each and every time.
