ABOUT SHYFT

We are all movers - balancing between stretch, strength, energetic release and calm. The continual arc within PILATES, the binding tension of CYCLE, the mindfulness of YOGA.

WHERE WE SUSPEND, DECOMPRESS AND FLY 

We welcome you to lean into your strengths, unload your weaknesses and spring into promise.
