“The river was beautiful and wise. There were two of them being happy in a new way. For here, there was no man, no woman, no master, no yellow, no black, no white. We, we who were, we are the same no longer.”
David Paul Kirkpatrick

 

Welcome to Mad Saint Yoga & Pilates! I’ve had two great rivers in my life so far–The Detroit River and the Mad River. Both Detroit and Dayton have been my homes and have given me so much–nourished through experiences both peaceful and painful.

 

Dreams born to live and become while others perish. My life/lives are the breeding ground for Mad Saint Yoga & Pilates. I actively teach clients in both cities and consider both to be my homes.

 

Let me show you through these awesome practices, one can turn weakness into strength and misfortune into wealth. In one’s own mind, body, and breath—the whole universe is present!!! As said in the Desiderata—no less than the trees and the stars!!!

About Us

Mad Saint Yoga & Pilates provides innovative yoga and Pilates instruction based on classical training and modern kinesiology principles. Sessions are an individual or small group and are tailored to the unique

beyond the mat or machine.

Discover Possible

Confess your hidden faults. Approach what you find repulsive. Help those you think you cannot help. Anything you are attached to, give that. Go to the places that scare you.

PEOPLE MATTER

We specialize in low impact movements and poses that safely tone, lift and transform. Our experienced instructors have a strong focus on restoring the core and proper alignment to support and encourage you.

FEELING GOOD

Improving your muscular and postural strength is the main goal of yoga and pilates. It will bring the body and mind together with its three main elements – exercise, breathing, and meditation.

YOUR SPIRITUAL GUIDE

Exercise is important in every person’s life. These practices fall under the “mind-body” category because they’re more focus on the mind’s ability to control and guide the physical body.

Both yoga and pilates will help you gain self-confidence and poise in everyday life. Also, both apply methods of breath control, which in turn has a calming effect on the mind and internal body.

WHAT IS YOGA?

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that originated in India.

The ultimate goal of practicing yoga is to attain tranquility in the mind and spirit, and making this goal achievable by means of yoga poses and meditation. It has a holistic orientation in that yoga is practiced physically, but its benefits extend to the mental and spiritual being.

If you want the answers to what is yoga and what its benefits are, practicing it yourself is the best way to learn.

WHAT IS PILATES?

Pilates is a form of exercise which concentrates on strengthening the body with an emphasis on core strength. This helps to improve 
general fitness and overall well-being.

Similar to Yoga, Pilates concentrates on posture, balance and flexibility. In Pilates the chance of injury is much lower than with other
more strenuous forms of exercise.

Pilates also focuses on the mind-body connection. While doing the various exercises your mind needs to be constantly aware of your
breathing and the way your body moves.

Yoga and Pilates Working Together

Pilates and yoga are also quite different from each other, and it is in the differences that we find many of the complimentary aspects of the two that make them such a great team.
