Re-Juvenate is a classical pilates studio, offering group and private lessons. We welcome everyone from beginners to elite dancers and athletes, and we focus on machine pilates (although we do offer mat too) using only Merrithew machines. We have 6 reformers for group classes, and for personal lessons we use the cadillac, tower reformer, ladder barrel, and chairs. Our studio is bilingual (JP/EN), meaning that instructors, studio assistants, and website are all bilingual. While we take our pilates seriously, the studio has a relaxed atmosphere, where Japanese and foreigners can take classes together, and make friends easily.
Our founder and head instructor, Taeko, believes that pilates should be a personal service, and even in group classes, will ensure that exercises are adjusted to the individual. Taeko teaches pilates in the American tradition, pushing clients hard during class, so be prepared to feel it afterwards! She also believes that exercise routines should be fun, and regularly varied, and employs many different props to mix up her routines. Taeko takes a holistic view of physical wellness, and believes that pilates generates best results when practised regularly in conjunction with improvements in diet and general lifestyle.
Re-Juvenate offers trial classes for first-time customers. Thereafter we understand you value flexibility, so we offer packages of 5, 10, or 20 classes, which may be used at any time over 6 months. We don’t charge any joining or membership fees.
Pilates trains us to use the mind to control the body
The body is a holistic system in which all movement flows through the spine and core
Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness
Peace of mind flows naturally from a clearer understanding of the physical body
Pilates builds an elegant posture, a tight core, and lean limbs
Our mission is to give you a healthy, well aligned body,
with which you may enjoy the lifestyle you want, at any age.
There are many different reasons why our customers learn pilates.
Some are looking to conquer specific health issues, such as back pain. Others wish to improve their performance in sports or on the stage. Still others simply want a more elegant posture or an improved figure.
We are all different, and we all have hopes and dreams. Share your dreams with us, and we'll give you a program to achieve your goals.
Our mission is to help you build a healthy, flexible and toned body so you can enjoy the lifestyle you want.
Gym workouts treat muscles as individual entities, but the body is a holistic system, in which the spine is a fulcrum.
Force on one side of the body flows through the core, distorting the spine, so if the core is not engaged, the spine twists more than it should. Weak and under-used muscles in the core and around the spine therefore lead to pain and discomfort in the long term.
Pilates teaches awareness of the spine and core, allowing students to rebuild strength and flexibility around the spine. With more control and a stronger core, the body works better as a unit.
Let’s learn together and build a better body!
