Although Pilates is gaining popularity among senior citizens there are few Studios/Instructors that concentrate on this age group.

With patient, calm, gentle instruction and an emphasis on fun, Playful Pilates Certified Instructor Jae Newman specializes in teaching the over 50's Pilates and movement. Jae has the ability to modify exercises to meet differing needs, which makes Pilates an inviting senior exercise program.
