About Scarsdale Pilates

We are fully committed to providing top customer service. At Scarsdale Pilates it’s our goal to help you feel the best you possibly can in your body. We will ensure you walk out of our doors feeling stronger, leaner, more flexible and more aligned after every single visit.

Renee is thankful to have found a career doing what she loves and sharing that love with people from all walks of life. She also keeps busy raising three active children, an energetic Boxer and one lazy bulldog in Scarsdale. In her little free time she loves to hike, practice yoga and continue her education in the world of movement, health and wellness.

After moving back to start her family, she exhausted many fitness programs to rebuild her abdominals after multiple C-sections. It was only through her discovery of Pilates in 2008 that she was able to restore her core strength. She joined the Center for Movement, received her 600 hour certification, and became a devoted believer in the method and it’s mind-body connection. In 2020 she was thrilled to assume ownership of the studio and its 20 plus year tradition of excellence in Classical Contrology established by former owners, Elle Jardim and Donna Singer.

Clients have been coming for over two decades and continue to remain loyal because of the excellence of our classically trained teachers.
