From the humble beginnings of a home studio in 1996, BodyMind Balance quickly grew into a new location in a Chiropractor’s office on Madison Rd, then to Hyde Park Square and now to it’s NY loft-style location on Dana Avenue. Jill Dema received her training through the Pilates Guild and brought The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning (as it was then referred to) to Cincinnati with her partner, Jay Apking. Jay purchased the studio from her in 2003 and maintained the Classical Pilates lineage by aligning the studio with Power Pilates. Julie Toren joined the studio in 2005 and eventually purchased the studio from Jay. Under her direction the studio has grown to offer both Classical Pilates and the GYROTONIC® method in addition to offering professional training in Classical Pilates through Power Pilates and the GYROTONIC® method through GYROTONIC® Cincinnati.
