Saskatoon Pilates StudioSaskatoon Pilates Centre was the original Pilates studio in Saskatchewan. We have been in operation for over 20 years. The center is a proud member of the Pilates Method Alliance. The PMA (R) is the international, not-for-profit, professional association that oversees certification and continuing education standards for Pilates professionals. All of our Saskatoon Pilates studio instructors hold internationally recognized certification. In 2012, we were excited to relocate to a new facility in the All Saints Anglican Church Hall where we now enjoy a large Pilates equipment studio. We also have a large mat and TRX studio that has a high cathedral ceiling. An additional smaller training studio allows for smaller group or individual training. There are 3 washrooms, a well laid out kitchen, client waiting area and a beautiful sunlit foyer. Saskatoon Pilates is an inviting place of warmth, nurturing, and healing. All of our Pilates instructors hold certification from Saskatoon Pilates Centre, Core Dynamics, Pilates Core integration, Stott Pilates, and the Physicalmind Institute, of New York and Canada. Their goal is to provide students and clients with the best knowledge and experience possible.
