Profile

It was a knee injury that first led formally-trained dancer Clare Amory to Pilates. She started her training at Body Tonic studio in Park Slope before moving on to teach at a slew of other local studios. She opened Flesh + Bone on the edge of Williamsburg in 2007. The space, a mid-sized room with hardwood floors and sparse white walls, and equipped with a Cadillac, Reformers, a few towers, and a mat area, can accommodate a couple of classes at once, depending on the combination. (A group mat class with a private reformer class, for instance.) Amory and the seven other instructors on staff teach their clients, many of which are local creative-types and young professionals, a hybrid of the classic practice derived from Joseph Pilates with the more-modern anatomical-driven methods, taking special care to alignment, form, and making sure that postures are done from the “powerhouse,” leaving abdominal muscles quite sore the next day.

Pros

This being Brooklyn, the prices ($70 for a private session or $10 for the first group mat class) are a lot less expensive than most Manhattan studios.

Cons
With a private and a group class often happening in the studio simultaneously, background noise can sometimes be distracting.
