What we do best
Much like building a house, Extension Pilates works first to build a solid foundation to support the development of your ‘home’. Whether it be in a Remedial Pilates class or in an advanced class, you will learn the proper technique and a whole lot about your inner workings.
Extend your wellness know how with our 'Coach approach' e-learning series where you will learn what it takes to create life long healthy habits. Our courses dig deep into the proven strategies of change , exploring both the 'how' and the 'why' across many different health subjects.
Transformation through the power of Coaching. Wellness Coaching is a strength-based approach to change that helps move you from a place of being ‘stuck’ to achieving great outcomes - from the “I want” or “I should be doing” to the mighty “I am consistently doing!"
“I was a stay at home mom for ten years and wanted to return to the work force. After such a long time, I found I had developed some self limiting beliefs and behaviours. Basically I had lost my self confidence. Deana gave me the guidance to create a plan and to take action. She gently pushed me to see that I am capable and to believe in myself again. Deana has a very supportive, comforting coaching style, which totally puts you at ease. Her ability to draw out what is truly most important to you is her unique gift. ”

Over 25 Years Of Experience
Yup, and we are just getting started...metaphorically speaking of course.
“I began Pilates classes with Deana over nine years ago and continue to participate in her classes. Pilates has strengthened my body, increased my flexibility, helped me lose weight and raised my spirits significantly. As a trainer, Deana is encouraging and incredibly knowledgeable. She really listens to her clients and can modify a class according to their needs and ability levels. With small groups Deana is able to keep a watchful eye on each person to ensure that proper form and technique is being achieved."
“On the recommendation of my chiropractor, I started Remedial Pilates classes with Deana to focus on improving hip joint issues. In the short time I’ve been participating, hip and overall strength and flexibility have increased. Deana’s sound-based knowledge of the body/mind system guides her in gently challenging each individual in the class. Sometimes we even get into impromptu Coaching conversations. Boredom never sets in – in fact, I can’t believe the hour goes by so quickly!"
