Julie Preston

Julie was first introduced to Pilates in 1989 during dance training under Bridgit Matuscheck, of Colorado Ballet. In September of 2001 Julie and her husband relocated from Colorado to Lynchburg to pursue historic restoration of a home in the downtown area where they reside. Julie can work with a broad range of clients but has particular interest and training to work with injuries and special populations and seniors. Julie received her matwork certification through STOTT PILATES ® in Toronto in 2003 and has since taken training on the Stability chair.  She is certified through ACSM as a personal trainer, trained in TRX suspension training and FMS. She is a lover of creativity and art and approaches her work meticulously but with an open heart and mind. Julie taught Pilates as well as dance, as the Director of Assemblé Dance Studio from 2002-2010.

Julie Preston instructs the following:
  • Fluid sculpt barre
  • This flowing class combines elements of Pilates, yoga and work at the barre to give you a complete workout. We use resistance created by a Flexband to mimic some of the repertoire done on the specialized Pilates equipment. A class emphasizing breath and movement set to music feels like Pilates but delivers SO MUCH MORE!

  • Standing Tall Pilates
  • Rise and shine with this standing Pilates class. Bring the principles of Pilates into the vertical plane in this posture and balance focused class. While not exclusively standing, our mat work segments will bring the translation of Pilates to life standing. This full body workout will use various props to lengthen and strengthen your whole body and develop a functional balanced body.

  • TRX Pilates
  • Core, core and more core! Use the TRX to develop functional strength and dynamic flexibility. This class adds a new twist to some familiar Pilates exercises and tones and strengthens the whole body using the TRX suspension system
