Pilates, GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Movement


asheville pilates

Asheville Pilates is a Pilates, Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis movement studio where individuals of all ages, body types and fitness levels can increase strength, flexibility, motion and tone, all while reducing stress, improving mental focus and clarity, and having fun.

Our nurturing instructors foster mind-body awareness through individual and group sessions, including Pilates classes using mats or equipment, Gyrotonic classes, Gyrokinesis classes and reflexology treatment.

Many exercise programs and classes - including those using free weights and traditional gym equipment - encourage participants to push through workouts, placing great strain on muscles, joints and the rest of the body.  This often leads to pain, stiffness and other negative side effects. But at Asheville Pilates, the focus is on smooth, controlled movement and breathing, resulting in an increased mindfulness, and physical strength and ease.

Isn't it time your body and mind reached their full potential? Contact Asheville Pilates and schedule your visit to our custom-designed studio.

PILATES CLASSES

Pilates is a system of comprehensive, whole-body exercises that emphasize breath, concentration, center, control, precision and flow. Our certified Pilates instructors are skilled at tailoring each session to the specific needs and goals of the client.

GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®

It is gaining increasing attention as one of the best techniques of physical rehabilitation directed towards one’s functional recovery as a means for re-establishing structural and functional well-being.

"In my 35 years of practice Maureen Sher stands out among a handful of practitioners I deem of the highest quality. She is an extraordinary instructor with a gift for seeing and teaching movement. I have shared many clients with Maureen. I am always confident each person is seen as an individual with their specific issues addressed and abilities maximized."

– Linda Emerick, PT, Feldenkrais Practitioner®

"Essential to my Health"

"I have been working with Maureen Sher regularly for more than 15 years. My Pilates sessions with her are essential to my health, especially because I have some specific challenges with my joints. Maureen's level of expertise regarding movement and body mechanics is incredible. Because of her extensive training and experience, she knows exactly how to push me physically — just far enough, but not too far! She also has given me exercises to do at home on a daily basis that help to keep me limber and strong. It is a joy to work with her!"

"Active and Pain Free Again"

“After months of physical therapy, rest, ice, heat and medications, I was afraid that lower back pain would always severely limit my activities. When my physical therapist referred me to Maureen I was skeptical whether anything would help. Simply put, Maureen and Pilates gave me my full, active, pain-free life back.”
