"Pilates is an exercise that has been practiced in the US since the 1920's. It is named after it’s creator Joseph H. Pilates.
The exercises are composed of many controlled, precise movements, designed to stretch and strengthen, creating long lean muscles without bulk.
The exercises require concentration and deep controlled breaths for a complete mind body workout.
The focus of the exercises is on the abdominal and back muscles (often called the “core” or “powerhouse” muscles) to build strength and agility in a balanced method.
The exercises can be done on a floor mat or with Pilates apparatus based on the designs of Joseph Pilates."

"Opening COIL YOGA (an acronym for Conscious, Open, Integrated, Living) in the spring of 2002 has been the most rewarding decision I have ever made. The joy and love I am able to share and receive from the community of people at COIL YOGA is priceless. It was not an easy decision to leave the stability of my job at Community Medical Foundation and take a leap of faith to become a small business owner in Downtown Fresno. Thanks to that job at Community, I found the space that is now COIL YOGA. As soon as I saw the room, I knew I wanted it to be a Yoga studio. Shortly after that, I discovered the owner of the building was Arthur Dyson, a long-time friend of my late grandfather. One sign after another continued to "show up" and support my desire to take that exciting leap. In its infinite wisdom, the universe provided exactly what was needed so that my vision could become a reality ... one breath at a time ...one student at a time..."
