Our Founder

Brooke fell in love with Pilates after her own personal health struggle. After repeated injuries from group fitness and athletic training, she discovered the Pilates method. She personally experienced how rehabilitative and effective this method of movement was and saw how it could help others. She introduced the method to her family and friends and watched how they also benefited from the movements.

Brooke felt compelled to create a community that supports safe and healthy movement, and in 2014, she opened Reforming Foundations. Continuing to share the joy of the Pilates experience, we are now in our second location as we continue to expand.
