If you want to sculpt your body slim, this is the right workout for you!
Slim Sculpt is mind/body sculpting at its most efficient. This signature Studio workout blends yoga, weight training and dance to tone the muscles of the body without building bulk. A set of light hand weights is recommended, no shoes required.
My secret is using large, controlled motion that lengthens and strengthens. Slim Sculpt consists of a 30 minute flowing standing series, followed by 15 minutes of abdominal and butt work 45 minutes in all, for all fitness levels and all body types.
I’ve been obsessed with creating the perfect workout, since I started teaching fitness as a college freshman. I’ve never lost sight of the real reasons for working out to look better (body), to feel better (mind) and to be better (spirit). This is why I created The Studio. I wanted a modern and elegant setting to celebrate mind/body fusion fitness.

Certified instructor description:
A balanced program that gracefully blends Pilates techniques and weight-room style toning. It's an effective format that stretches and lengthens your body as it shapes and tones each muscle. Classic gym-style exercises are “softened” with more fluid transitions and a greater range of motion. For example, instead of a standard start-then-stop lunge, you'll lean into the lunge and then gently pull back (so the muscle stretches on the “lean in” and strengthens on the “pull back”). Upper-body moves have a similar feel (e.g. large, diagonal motions like a Pilates “pulley arms” routine). The floorwork features mostly classic Pilates core exercises. Ellen's cuing is clear and refined. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2007.
