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.



8 Rules to Know Before You Take a Pilates Class



Pilates benefits every individual—no matter the state of their current health and wellness. It is an effective movement system that improves other wellness activities you do such as cycling, running, golf, tennis, and yoga, as well daily routines such as sitting at a desk or standing on your feet for long periods.

Pilates addresses health goals and concerns such as:

Coordination and balance
Strength training
Back pain
Joint pain
Digestive ailments
Osteoporosis prevention and alleviation of symptoms
Scoliosis prevention in youths and alleviation of symptoms in adults
Post-partum recovery of the pelvic floor and abdominals
Stress and depression
Improved movement and posture
Improved athletic performance




Our cancellation policy is at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time. If you cancel after that, you are subject to the full session fee.


Bloom works hard to ensure every student is satisfied with her/his studio experience. We welcome feedback from our clients at any point — be it your first session or your 30th.
