Fitness Training

How does it feel to be living in your body right now? Could it be better?

How will it feel ten years from now? Will you still be doing all the things that bring you joy today?

The truth is that you have A LOT of influence over how your body looks, feels and functions – now and in the years to come.

Maybe you’ve been neglecting exercise for months or years. Or maybe you’ve been working out, but without the right guidance – and it’s causing more aches and pains, instead of less. Whatever your age and current condition, your body will respond positively to the right kinds of exercise – and it doesn’t have to hurt!


How does it work?

We’ve found that our clients often achieve their best results from a combination of the fitness training and bodywork techniques we offer at Sanctuary Body.  We may recommend that you alternate sessions with both a Pilates instructor and a personal trainer, or combine fitness training with Rolfing™ or massage to release tension and allow your body to return to proper alignment.

To arrive at the perfect formula for you, we start with a New Client Consultation. You can set that up here. We’ll talk about your fitness challenges and goals and take you through a short demo workout customized for you. Then we’ll match you with a team member who fits your needs and schedule.  Explore our offerings below.

Personal Training

The Sanctuary Body approach to personal training emphasizes long-term strength and mobility over short-term vanity goals. Our emphasis on proper alignment will help you look leaner, move better, and gain strength without pain.

Equipment Pilates

Pilates works from the inside out to tone muscles, strengthen your core, build flexibility, and incorporate cardio – all in under an hour. Our instructors will guide you through an evolving a program specifically designed for you. 

Private Yoga

Get more from your yoga practice with flows designed for your body and one-on-one guidance from an expert instructor. Private yoga classes work around your schedule, and help you progress faster.


We don’t just work your body, we pamper it, too. Sanctuary Body offers massage, acupuncture, and Rolfing™ to compliment your workout or simply relieve pain and stress.  Come as you are, leave feeling relaxed and renewed.

"Recently started both personal training and Pilates. Both trainers spent time with me first to understand my goals and evaluate where I need to build strength to correct and help prevent injury. The sessions are personalized for me which has made it impactful in a short period of time. I highly recommend!"
