About Bloom Pilates

Bloom Pilates LLC, a classical Pilates studio in NW Portland, offers an accessible and healthful alternative to traditional exercise and fitness environments.

Bloom Pilates is owned and operated by Jodi Heintz.

Jodi spent more than 15 years empowering women and girls and helping underserved communities while working in the nonprofit sector.  She is passionate about community and giving people the tools and resources they need to lead stronger, safer and happier lives.

She took her first Pilates class in 2005 and was hooked. Years of running and stationary bike exercise had compromised her knees and shoulders and she yearned to find an alternative wellness path. Pilates was the first movement system that left her feeling strong, energetic and pain free.

In her early 40s, an autoimmune disease diagnosis sent her on a deeper quest for wellness and certification training in Pilates.

Jodi is now channeling her vision for empowered communities into her own wellness studio, Bloom Pilates. The programs are designed to nurture and strengthen the mind, body and spirit in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I prepare for Pilates?

Every individual’s body is unique and has its own strengths and unique challenges.

Whether you rarely exercise or are a committed fitness practitioner, Pilates is designed for every individual so there is no time like the present to get started.

Simply come to the practice of Pilates with an open mind and a willingness to challenge yourself physically and mentally.

What do I wear?

Ultimately, you should wear clothing that makes you comfortable and will not restrict a full range of motion.

Having said that, Pilates movement is dependent on proper alignment of the spine, pelvis, hips, knees, and shoulders. Bloom encourages you to wear clothing that allows you and the teacher to watch what is happening in your body during movement.

Pilates is generally done barefoot but socks or Pilates footies or toe socks may be worn. All Pilates apparatus is thoroughly wiped down after each session.

Two important suggestions for a comfortable work out:

1. Consider tops that are longer or pants with a suitable waist band for coverage during deep bends.

2. If you like wearing shorts, we suggest they are lined to ensure coverage during movements where you are lying down.

Please refrain from wearing perfumes and lotions. They are very difficult to remove from the equipment.
