The Belly Studio is unlike any other place I have tried. I believe that Arlene and Dylan are the best in the business. There is no doubt that you will leave the studio feeling better, more balanced, more energized and ready for more. You will be changed for the better. Don’t miss out!
I’m a 22 yr old male who was suffering from scoliosis, chronic back pain, tendinitis, anxiety, sleeplessness, and had a hard time reaching my fitness goals. Through working with Arlene all of those issues have subsided and my scoliosis has become manageable. My self-confidence, peace of mind, focus, happiness, and energy have increased.Studying pilates with Arlene is an intimate experience. You feel like you’re her only client when in session with her. She pours over the details of your progress and shares in your recovery to an eased, neutral body. What’s more is she explains in detail what she believes, and always knows, is going on in your body, why she is having you do the choreography, and how it is working the area.Finally, you immediately feel welcome at her studio as it is also just a few steps from her home. The property is healing, peaceful, full of desert vegetation, friendly animals, and brimming with a natural energy. You can’t help feeling like you belong there!
The Belly Studio is not only an incredibly tranquil and beautiful space for physical healing and awareness, it is also a state of the art pilates facility, with every kind of machine, gadget, and roller you could ask for in the Pilates fitness system. I also doubt that there is anyone who embodies the Pilates lifestyle in Tucson more than the instructors at the studio, their depth of knowledge and range of experience spans decades and you can tell immediately, whether you are taking a simple Body Flossing™ class or going in for specific one on one therapy. These teachers know their stuff, and not only that they know that everyone’s body is different and they are incredibly skilled at specializing treatment to suit your body needs. This studio is as good as it gets.
I had given up hope living with chronic pain, DDD and RA (Fibromyalgia, which I never accepted as real) when I came across an article about Arlene and The Belly Studio and it has been life changing! She has done what at least eight doctors couldn’t do! No more daily pain pills, no more thoughts of giving up. I feel like a different person! Immersion is awesome as well! I can’t thank her [...] enough! Love you gals!
