Conveniently located in The Shoppes at Pennington, we have a new and expanded fully-equipped studio. All instructors have had or are under-going a comprehensive certification program in pure Classical Pilates to ensure your safety and maintain the integrity of Joseph Pilates' work. We are trained to modify and tailor all sessions to meet your individual needs.
Founder and owner, Donna Longo, was originally trained by Romana Kryzanowska, master teacher and protege of Joseph Pilates, in 1992. She discovered Pilates as a professional ballet dancer when an injury brought her to Performing Arts Physical Therapy in NYC. In partnership with Romana, they began to establish the very first certification program for, what is now called, Authentic Pilates. After completing her certification, Donna was asked by Romana to help train the apprentices at their Los Angeles studio. She later worked for Sichel Chiropractic, now Power Pilates, and various other medical professionals in NYC before opening her own studio in New Jersey in 1995.
After 20 years, Donna is still, more than ever, dedicated to preserving, not only the method as it was handed down to her, but also the style of teacher training and personal mentorship that she learned from Romana, hoping to inspire others in the same way.
Donna also holds a certificate in Thai Yoga Bodywork.
