The Pilates Studio heads south to the Heights

15 Jul

Virginia Thomas found herself needing a little more room to stretch — and grow — The Pilates Studio of Hood River.

So, after four successful years with Flow Yoga downtown, Thomas has completed a move from her former 200-square-foot space to a new 500-square-foot space in the same building as Columbia Gorge Physical Therapy, 2002 12th St.

It was a bit of a homecoming. After she and her husband moved to town five years ago, she started her Pilates practice with Bettina Brown and Bret Paulson at Columbia Gorge P.T.

“We are holding an open house Thursday (July 15) between 6 and 9 p.m.,” she says. “We will have food, wine, demos and prizes.”

She offer an array of pilates instruction and activity. Barre classes, which use a horizontal bar attached to the wall, can handle up to 8 students at a time. “It combines dance inspired moves, pilates and yoga,” she says. “It makes for a great full-body workout.”

She also has reformer and cadillac equipment for individual and duet instruction.

If you want to attend the open house, enter from the west, opposite the Sports Club. To get more info, visit her web site, or call 541-490-0660.
