See original posts on SDK Pilates Facebook…. I have taken yoga and Pilates classes from Stephanie for many years, and I can say that she is terrific. Her background in physical medicine and rehab makes her uniquely qualified to instruct and coach with a focus in balanced strengthening, proper alignment, and prevention of injury. […]
I was born with a crooked spine. Many prefer the term “scoliosis”, “the abnormal curvature of the spine”, but I find the description “crooked spine” simply does the trick. My crooked spine is not that crooked, with an angle of only thirty degrees. However, that small angle can wreak havoc on a body’s structure.
SDK Pilates is really an incredible place! The owners/instructors (Brenda and Stephanie) are not just great instructors but they are gracious with sharing their wealth of knowledge about everything from nutrition to the skeletal system. The classes are small and have the same feel as a personal training session. We even get to request a […]
Looking for something challenging and new … If you are looking for something challenging and new, or simply looking to change, or add to your usual workout routine, I would strongly recommend trying pilates. I recently decided to add pilates into my workouts and I absolutely love it. It is an excellent way to either […]
Strongly Recommend SDK Pilates I would strongly recommend this studio (and constantly do) to anyone who is interested in getting in shape and is ready to put the work into their body to get results. SDK Pilates does not offer you a “magic solution” to getting fit, but rather they teach you how to work […]
Working to my highest level, rather than doubting my own abilities. SDK Pilates. I can’t begin to say how much I love attending classes at SDK Pilates!!!! Brenda and Stephanie are so encouraging. They get me to work at my highest level, even though I may doubt my own abilities. I’ve been using muscles that […]
Here’s a nice review from one of our clients… When I found LNK (about 14 months ago), I had been looking for a Pilates studio for over a year. I could only find gyms in the Baltimore area that offered inconveniently-timed classes and Yoga studios that offered 1-2 mat classes a week (no Reformer machines). LNK does Pilates and […]
I love the classes and instructors at SDK Pilates! Stephanie, the owner, has been a tremendous help to me with understanding challenges I face with a bad hip. Her expertise and medical background have helped me select exercises that are appropriate for me and I have learned there are still plenty of things that I can do to strengthen my body! At other places, I sometimes overdid my workouts (and hurt myself) – SDK’s instructors have helped me increase my flexibility and strengthen my body in a s…
Pilates has been a wonderful experience both physically and mentally – it relieves stress and gets your body in a “can do” spirit to stretch and feel good. The instructors are the best and the people I’ve met in class are fun to be with. Friendships develop. I will do this forever!
My experience with SDK Pilates has been outstanding. All of the instructors have been knowledgeable and welcoming. All levels of fitness and capabilities are embraced, addressed and challenged. Individual needs are seamlessly met with in the class. Every class is different and I always walk out feeling better than when I walked in. I take Pilates twice a week and wish I could take it every day!
SDK Pilates is great! So far I’ve taken Pilates classes with Steph and Nancy, and I’m looking forward to Yoga with Mark. Currently working on core strengthening, shoulder mechanics, overall conditioning, and my golf game.

I have been a client of Stephanie’s for several years. What I think makes her stand out from other studios is that she was a doctor & understands each individual clients bodies. The new studio is airy spacious & calming
SDK Pilates is wonderful! I have been taking classes from Stephanie for a number of years and thoroughly enjoy both her Pilates and therapeutic yoga sessions. Her training as a doctor enables her to work around physical limitations and injuries and strengthen weaknesses. She has helped me immensely with chronic shoulder issues. The fun nature of the classes, the camaraderie of the attendees and the great workout make SDK classes my favorite way to exercise!
Stephanie’s class is well-paced, challenging yet welcoming for first timers and those who are more experienced. She offers seamless coaching throughout and her enthusiasm and energy is inspirational.
“SDK Pilates’ yoga instructors are beyond wonderful and very reliable. Our community and hospital staff truly enjoy the classes and we are extremely thankful for their partnership with us.”
