Balanced Body Pilates is a mind body focused exercise regimen. Pilates challenges the mind to control mobile, flexible limbs while sustaining a strong, stable core. Pilates consists of low-impact floor exercises which take the stress off of the body’s joints. You can expect to move in positions such as; plank, ab curl, neutral spine, and inverting on a curved spine. There are modifications for every exercise providing all students with options.

Goodbye 2015 and Hello 2016 from MGYS!


Please join us at 9:00am for a New Year’s Eve Practice.

Our lives and experiences are ever-changing, aren’t they? New Year’s Eve is a celebrated marker of transition and yoga is the practice of being present within a sea of change. In recognition of the two, we invite you to reflect on the past year, appreciate the present, and prepare to embark upon a new year from the welcoming space of Morning Glory Yoga Studio.

We practice today (everyday) as a way to develop a healthy body and calm mind, discover our true self, encourage connection, dissolve separateness, and promote compassion.

Happy 2016!

See you on the mat!

  • Date: December 31, 2015
