Issemathe Caruso ( Owner )
My name is Issemathe B Caruso, I go by Isma. I am originally from Haiti. I moved to Boston in 1987. I went to Curry College. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing with a minor in Psychology. I live in the Vail community and my beautiful children are attending Cienega High School. Health and wellness has always been an important part of my life. I started my Pilates journey when I began taking classes at The Pilates Station to better my health. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia and practicing Pilates has greatly improved my joint and mental health.
Due to the remarkable improvement in my health and wellness. I decided I wanted to help transform the lives of others by becoming a Pilates instructor. I was formally trained to be a Pilates instructor by attending the Arizona Pilates Academy. Jeanne Osgood and Connie Plummer inspired me to further my journey. I am so thankful for all the knowledge and the encouragement they have given me. With the support of my wonderful husband, family, and friends, I decided to become the owner of The Pilates Station. I am so happy to inspire others to improve their health and wellness through Pilates. I am excited to be continuing this Pilates journey to serve you and our community. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my wonderful instructors ET, Corina, Tamala, and Angie. Thank you to all of our clients who continuously practice to better themselves. Thank you for your continued support!!.
Enjoy feeling good in your body again. We’ll help you move safely while increasing strength, flexibility, range of motion, balance, and body awareness. We offer Pilates Apparatus classes and personalized instruction by certified Pilates teachers. We offer private, semi-private, and small group apparatus classes (maximum 5).** Our studio utilizes the Reformer, Stability Chair, Tower, Mat, JUVO Board, and the Cadillac.
Our certified Pilates instructors are trained to work with many different types of injuries, ailments, and health issues. We often work directly with Physical Therapists to help strengthen and return clients to their active lifestyles.
**All Group Pilates Apparatus classes require a group prep package. A group prep package is 4 private sessions with a certified Pilates instructor. During these sessions we will get your health history and tailor your fitness to your exact needs.
The Pilates Rehabilitation Reformer Plus is almost two feet off the floor and wider than the average reformer to provide easier access for mobility challenged clients. It is equipped with high-precision springs providing a full range of resistance easily adjusted to meet our client needs.
It transforms to a virtual Pilates Cadillac with the addition of a vertical frame tower that facilitates limitless exercise possibilities. The design of the traveling pulleys offers variable angles of resistance, providing an increased range of motion, making it the premier tool for sport specific, rehab and cross-training movement. For example, the golf swing can be simulated to strengthen the precise swing movement with resistance.
One of our favorite pieces of apparatus ideal for stretching for Vail residents is the “Egg”. The Egg was introduced to us by Mary Bowen, a First Generation Pilates Teacher, in a recent conference Connie Plummer attended. The “Egg” is an egg shaped stability ball our clients use to stretch the lumbar region of the back in a very gentle manner. Many of our clients in our Vail Pilates classes are very enthused about this piece of apparatus.
The Ladder Barrel
The Ladder Barrel challenges core stability and strength for every Pilates enthusiast. It is designed for core strength conditioning and to increase flexibility and mobility. A great full-body workout can be achieved on any of the Pilates apparatus. Your instructor customizes each Pilates lesson combining different features of each Pilates machine. We also use the Pedi-O-Pull for postural assessment as well as other work. Small props such as the Magic Circle, Arc, Long and Short Box, pole, rotational disks, stability balls, balls and bands are incorporated into our Pilates workouts.
The Juvo Board is a durable board ideal for stretching, toning, and strengthening muscles. The board is geared to assist you with your balance and core. The Juvo Board will assist you at maintaining a longer, more optimal state of health as you age.
The Cardio Trampoline
Finally try our new cardio trampoline platform which is attached to the Pilates reformer. Work on your cardiovascular endurance or weight loss with Pilates by “jumping up and down” in a safe and controlled manner.
The Stability Chair
The Stability Chair was inspired by the “Wunder Chair” invented by Joseph Pilates. This is a multi-functional Pilates machine that helps achieve upper and lower body strength and conditioning with adjustable high-precision springs.
