    I started coming to Body Balance Institute to help with my Fibromyalgia. After so many years of being on medication and thinking that I was going to be on it for the rest of my life, I wanted to find something that could help me. I started coming to BBI twice a week for Pilates and Gyrotonic, and...

    I've gone to other pilates studios and gyms looking for a solution to my long standing back problems with no success. Then I heard about gyrotonics from a friend in Atlanta who swore his back problems were much improved since starting gyrotonics so I decided to give it a try. Then my lucky day! I found...

    My passion for Pilates has been an on going LOVE affair. Here is a bit of my background and why Body Balance Institute is the perfect fit for me.

    I’ve been a student at Body Balance Institute just shy of 3 years. After being a student of Pilates for 2 1/2 years, I came here specifically to learn about Gyrotonics, but I found much more! This is a friendly, supportive and nonjudgmental environment. Vicki and her entire staff have listened carefully...

    Strength. Serenity. Support. Balance. Flexibility. Peace of mind. Just some of the things I get from Pilates at Body Balance Institute. It’s one of my favorite places to be because I know I will feel better upon leaving than arriving. The atmosphere is beautiful and soothing, the classes are challenging...

    My husband bought me a massage at Body Balance Institute and one night when I couldn’t sleep I went on their website. Well, I signed up for some Pilates Barre classes and personal training classes. I had no idea what I was doing, but I am glad I did it. After 3 weeks I noticed a difference, but...

    I, like most, have tons of paper in piles that I mean to get to soon, or some day, but soon, or some day, never comes. And so, when it became time to clean my paper pile, a crisis had come. It was time to get my stuff in order. I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. On August 5th, 2011, the news...

    Where do I begin...I set out at the beginning of the year like most, committing that I was going to focus on my physical health. The difference this year was that I wanted to explore fitness programs that were different than the traditional gym or workout videos I usually try. After a bit...

    I've been coming to BBI for the past year and find the staff and equipment second to none. Over the past five years I have visited several studios using various Pilates methods, but none have equaled BBI. The difference has been that, rather than focus on a particular...

    This past spring I embarked on a new found passion: stand-up paddleboarding (SUP). A SUP is a board that is larger and thicker than a traditional surfboard making it more buoyant, allowing me to stand up on top of the board even in motionless water. I use a long paddle to...

    They had me at C-curve. I’ve been taking classes with Body Balance Institute since 2011. I’d done mat classes before, but there is no comparison to the studio experience. My first private made it clear that Pilates is a permanent part of my life. The quality…

    I've been doing pilates at BBI since their opening at Hodge Boulevard in 2007. Last week while traveling I was descending one of those narrow metal staircases attached to a small plane and of course carrying a bulky bag over one shoulder when the heel of my shoe caught on the...
