Senior-focused Pilates studio opens downtown

The Pilates Loft recently opened at 1229 Cornwall Ave., Suite 207, above the Greenhouse furniture store. There are a lot of Pilates studios in Bellingham, but this one is a little different; instructor Rachael Maddalena focuses on the over-50 woman’s body.

Maddalena, who was the senior Pilates instructor at Esteem Pilates, uses her experience in dance conditioning and injury rehabilitation to provide Pilates and body conditioning sessions that focus primarily on workouts for the mature body. She implements exercises from ballet barre, strength training and Pilates to give brisk and challenging workouts.

The Pilates Loft is a private studio that sees only one person at a time. Prices range from three sessions for $150 and 10 for $450, and offers free half-hour introductory sessions by appointment.

The studio also works in association with Back in Motion Chiropractic offering an adjunct Pilates training program.
