Studio Motion

Boerne Pilates is about Wellness in Motion and the core philosophy is the human body must “move well” to “be well”. When the business surged, they outgrew the small commercial building where they successfully operated and commissioned a new building located within walking distance of their forever residence. The new location offers more space and more opportunity for comprehensive wellness events such as training regimens, nutrition classes, dynamic resistance training (land or water) but the same hill-country pilates philosophy “move well to be well”. Time for motion!
