Our one-on-one sessions are tailored to each person's individual needs so everyone can benefit equally.



Pilates is my passion (along with stand up paddleboarding) and has been a very big part of my life for the past 21 years.  I have been a certified pilates instructor for 14 years and continue to take classes to further my knowledge of the body.  As a 67 year old woman, I know first hand the benefits that Pilates provides all of us as we grow younger.


My greatest pleasure is seeing you leave The Pilates Shed feeling refreshed and energized!

"I am 73 years old and have been taking Pilates with Leslie at the bright and cheery Pilates Shed for over four years.  Not only have I been achieving my goals for fitness and health as I age, I have also recovered from the pain of an old injury!   Leslie is both a challenging and very supportive teacher.  She starts “where you are” and moves forward at just the right pace.  Plus, Leslie is a wonderful, warm, gracious, human being.  I love Pilates with Leslie!"

The Pilates Shed


I started going to Leslie for Pilates about 8 years ago.  Prior to that I visited the chiropractor on an almost weekly basis. Since I've been going to Leslie I rarely see the chiropractor.  The combination of stretching and strengthening is ideal. And because she is so knowledgeable and sensitive to a person's individual needs, she is able to modify and vary each lesson to maximize your comfort and your workout.  Going to Leslie has made a huge difference in my life.  I cannot recommend her enough.
