Nestled between the hot West Loop and East Village neighborhoods, Chicagoans in search of Pilates and Yoga private lessons and group classes have discovered a true gem. Owner Marilyn D'Andrea opened Sana Vita Studio Pilates and Yoga in June 2004. We have created a beautifully serene and unintimidating environment for providing high quality bodywork for people of all ages and physical condition. You can't treat a Pilates or Yoga class like a traditional "one-size fit's all" Aerobics class with 25-50 people packed into a room. Our goal is to not only help you get in better shape, but to teach you how to exercise properly. We help you understand the link between healthy movement and posture, so ultimately you can improve your overall health and achieve your fitness goals.
Just give us 60 minutes 2 x per week and we'll give you the body you have always wanted.
It's never too late to get in shape for life. And, most importantly, people who exercise simply live longer than people who don't. Re-evaluate your shape-up plan to make sure it includes:
The Pilates Reformer & Jumpboard Class
If it's easy it's probably not Pilates! The Art of Pilates is looking at the body and knowing the most direct way to address it to achieve an optimal level of health & fitness. Pilates is more than something you do here in our studio...it is a lifestyle. Pilates should affect your everyday life-your posture, how you think about movement, your ability to move, in any task-mundane or athletic.

Paul Norden is a licensed massage and bodywork therapist, practicing at Sana Vita and in Wisconsin. His method often combines therapeutic bodywork with discussion of self-awareness, so clients may explore and become more familiar with the possible causes of tension and restriction held in the body.
Pilates & Yoga will enhance mental concentration, improve energy levels and strengthen your ability to cope with stress. How we handle stress is so very important as we never know what life may put in our path. Watch this inspirational video to see how Janine Shepherd dealt with her personal tragedy.
