About Us

Studio Emilio

Emile offers effective, enjoyable, creative full-body workouts enhanced with story-telling from years of travel, laced with humor in a happy, comfortable environment. “Twenty years ago, I fell in love with connecting mind and body through conscious breathing and core activation.” We have a warm community of students of various ages from different parts of the U.S. — and the world — who enjoy seeing each other, improving fitness, and escaping for an hour from daily stresses. No competition — just friendly, spirited sessions of guided Pilates.
