About the Studio

Meital Studio offers Pilates tuition for physical fitness and for rehabilitation. The centre opened in September 2011 and is located in Moshav Shdema in the Gderot Council Region, about 30 minutes south of Tel-Aviv.

I returned to Israel in 2010 after three years in San Francisco where I completed the course - Pilates apparatus exercises by Elizabeth Larkam, specializing in rehabilitation. Together with my academic degree and my knowledge of physical therapy and sports rehabilitation I had gained over the years, I decided to set up a Pilates physical fitness and rehabilitation studio that would serve a wide range of people and also provide rehabilitation for those with special needs.

The studio places great emphasis on quality of movement and on the understanding of the muscles being used so that everyone acquires good body awareness. This in turn leads to improvement in physical ability, enjoyment, and an increase in vitality while minimizing the risk of injury. The studio is equipped with the full range of Pilates apparatus and Pilates mattress exercise equipment.

The studio is open during the day and evening hours, offering Pilates lessons with maximum personal attention to individuals, pairs, and small groups of up to 5 people.

The team of instructors at the studio are all skilled and highly qualified. They trained at a variety of Pilates schools, a fact which enriches variety in terms of class content and training methods. The instructors undergo continuing education programs and workshops in order to keep up to date with the latest developments in the field and I provide ongoing professional supervision. Furthermore, the studio provides a rehabilitation service and the possibility of longer- term treatment following injuries or to those suffering from chronic pain conditions such as: back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain, etc.

Specialist treatment is also available for individuals following more serious traumatic injuries such as: head injuries, spinal cord injuries.
