Balance Pilates and Yoga CentersInvolved in fitness education since 1987, Connie Borho, Founder of Balance Pilates and Yoga Centers, has seen exercise trends evolve from a high impact, high intensity approach, to a gentler mind/body focus Ð and she's happy to see it.

Connie's resume reads like a Who's Who in the fitness industry, including references to certifications from AEA, ACE, and AFAA - leading organizations most fitness buffs are familiar with. However, what sets Connie and her sought after studios apart from other fitness alternatives is her extensive affiliations and experience with mind/body organizations such as The Yoga Alliance, Peak Pilates, and the PMA (Pilates Method Alliance). My passion for Pilates began in the early 90's when I was able to study under an apprentice of Joseph Pilates in New York, Connie reflects. Once I experienced the benefits of the Pilates mind/body connection for myself, my focus and teaching methods were never the same.

Connie's expertise and commitment to safety is part of the reason why she is now a National Teacher Trainer for Peak Pilates. With over 20 years of experience, Connie is a well-known and sought after dynamic presenter, teaching extensive continuing education classes to fitness and wellness teachers throughout the United States. ÊShe has worked with prima ballerinas in New York, award-winning body builders and triathletes; and professional football, baseball, and tennis players. Back, hip, knee and shoulder issues are areas that she has had great success in bringing greater strength, functionality, and stability to. Connie also has specialty certification and expertise in Pre- and Post-Natal exercise. She is a certified doula, and has worked with OB/GYNs to physically prepare mothers for birth and beyond.

Connie takes pride in the extensive training she insists on for her instructors at Balance, and in the high level of service that they bring to their students. The staff at Balance provides a variety of workout options including group classes using specialized Pilates equipment as well as Pilates Mat and Yoga. Private and Duet training is also offered for more personalized workouts. Two locations in Manatee County serve northwest Bradenton and the East Bradenton/North Sarasota communities. We're proud to be affiliated with Connie and Balance Pilates, says Karol Schmidt, a certified Pilates Instructor who manages Connie's studio on State Road 64 East close to I-75. Our instructors as well as our students gain so much from Connie's knowledge of general fitness, as well as her expertise in Pilates and Yoga. And our studios offer the most comprehensive Pilates equipment program available. We are truly cutting edge!

Connie also shares her expertise with the public through her published articles in national magazines such as Pilates Digest, American Health, Shape, and Fitness. She is committed to teaching every person the value of living a healthy, balanced lifestyle, with mind/body fitness as the foundation of success.
