TORONTO, September 1, 2018: Lucid is proud to welcome back one of Toronto’s oldest Pilates institutions, Body Harmonics, back to the health and wellness team with Body Harmonics’ 20th anniversary just around the corner! With an exciting lineup of events and activities coming soon, Body Harmonics is eager to expand the family; sharing their core values of enthusiasm, encouragement, collaboration, respect and knowledge. Their mission is to help transform your life through the power of integrated movement and health. Body Harmonics is more than just a Pilates Studio. It’s a lifestyle and growing community.
Almost exactly 20 years ago, Body Harmonics opened its doors at the hands of Founder and Director of Education, Margot McKinnon. What started as a goal to create an environment that incorporated Pilates and movement into life’s regular scheduled programming, has since taken off as one of Toronto’s leading and longest-standing Pilates Studios. Guided by their wholehearted Founder, Body Harmonics has been at the forefront of helping people move well, teach well and be well since 1998. By leveraging her knowledge of the science of movement, McKinnon created an experience that is energizing, accessible, and engaging.
“When you move well, you feel great. My job is to help you embrace the process so it becomes part of your everyday,” says Body Harmonics Founder and Director of Education, Margot McKinnon.
Through their Teaching Training Centres in Canada, US, UK, and Brazil, they’ve helped thousands of people transform their lives and careers for the better. At their Toronto Studios, Body Harmonics’ private training options and 125-plus Pilates & Movement mat and equipment classes per week to choose from mean you’re in the best of hands. Beyond physical results, McKinnon wanted her business to reflect her belief belief in the importance of understanding the “how and why” of movement theory. Body Harmonics is known for taking complex concepts of movement theory and making them simple. Helping the public and aspiring Pilates professionals get the most from what Body Harmonics has to offer takes knowledge, patience, compassion and commitment. And often, the hardest part can be managing expectations. Thus, her intention has always been to make each individuals’ experience at Body Harmonics personally relevant and worthwhile.
Supporting organizations such as the Women’s College Hospital, Arthritis Society of Canada, Osteoporosis Society of Canada, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada; Body Harmonics is proud to be a socially conscious and responsible community of individuals.
