Science Meets Soul

The Science of Pilates

Pilates is a rejuvenating practice that immeasurably improves posture and alignment by conditioning the body and bringing awareness to the core (the deep abdominal and back muscles). Pilates’ unique ability to activate the body’s supportive musculature, dynamically stabilizes the spinal column and pelvis structure, helping clients to alleviate physical discomfort and improve functional movement. Clients experience improved strength, posture, and quality of life.

No two bodies are alike.

We Celebrate Individuality

Our classes are client-driven and immersive. We use carefully chosen Pilates props and focused, full body movement to create entirely unique strengthening exercises for each client, every class. Skilled in recognizing imbalanced movement patterns, we teach you to reorganize how you sense your body, resulting in better alignment, increased flexibility, and a sculpted physique.

“The Mongoose Bodyworks method reorganizes the neuromuscular system to work with efficiency and grace. As a result, your body grows stronger and you become healthier, happier, and more clear-headed.”

Halle Clarke, NCPT

A second generation Master Pilates teacher, Halle Clarke has committed her life to the practice of healing through movement education. She opened Mongoose Bodyworks in 1999, and the studio still occupies the same spacious Soho loft some two decades later.

Halle majored in dance at the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts, NYU. Seeking relief from a series of overuse injuries, she began training closely with two of Joseph Pilates greatest protégées, Kathy Grant and Romana Krysanowska. These mentors set Halle on a lifelong path of learning, teaching, and healing.

“Halle’s ability to work so in depth…”

with your particular issue by way of clear, meticulous explanations and encouraging mental concentration teaches me something new about my body and what I am capable of every session. I take it with me through my day and feel aligned, balanced and in control.
