Pilates Training is Powerful Full-Body Conditioning
As Joe Pilates Intended

Welcome to Echelon Pilates, the most focused and dedicated Pilates studio in Asheville, NC. If you are serious about starting, expanding or elevating your Pilates practice, we are the studio for you!

Joe Pilates called his method “Contrology,” meaning the art and science of control. When practiced consistently, one may experience the extraordinary benefits of Contrology - a path to physical harmony, injury prevention, and a profound sense of focus and balance.

Echelon Pilates was founded by expert Pilates Teacher and “The Method” International Pilates Program student, Erin Brown. 

Erin’s vision is to create a dedicated community of Pilates practitioners who are committed to a serious practice and want the highest level of instruction available in the Asheville, NC area.

Erin is also available for guest teaching and workshops.

Learn more about our community, Upper Echelon Monthly Membership group classes, and more below!

Echelon Open Studio Class (Approval Required)

In Studio or Virtual $48.00 / 50 minutes (special 90 minute class on Thursday evenings)

Unlike most group classes, this is limited to a small group of four participants who want the independence of a self-guided workout, along with the watchful eye of a teacher who can give personal feedback. You can show up and leave when you’d like during the class window, giving you both flexibility and tons of attention. We believe in the progress, exploration, and beauty of your own practice and pace. Get outside your comfort zone and take your Pilates study to new heights!

Single Pilates Lesson – In-Person or Virtual 

$125.00 / 50 minutes

Experience Pilates as it was meant to be practiced without all the unnecessary fluff, distracting music, or fusions of other exercise modalities. We teach “the method” – uncomplicated and incredibly effective. We offer the same personalized, one-one-one instruction on Zoom, as we do in person. You might be delighted and surprised by just how much your teacher can see and assist online. Apparatus and props are welcome if you have them available, but a simple mat works too.
