The Dailey Method is the fastest way to a strong, lean, sculpted body. From pilates and yoga, to ballet barre, our classes are an ever-evolving mix of movement that offers the extreme benefits from many different disciplines. Our classes are driven by fitness research and our clients’ needs.

Each class begins with high rep movements in a very small range of motion, effectively toning, elongating, and isolating the muscles. We focus on the triceps, biceps, shoulders and chest, back, seat, and legs. After working each muscle group, we stretch, shaping and leaning out the muscles, and bringing balance through increased flexibility. Our core engagement exercises emphasize our quest for ultimate alignment, learning to stabilize the muscles closest to the spine, improving our natural, functional spine position. This is very important for posture and overall spinal health; especially as we age.

The Dailey Method studios are each led by Dailey Method Master Teachers, ensuring that no matter where your studio, you will experience the most efficient and effective group workout on the planet.

But don’t just take our word for it, try a class today to find out what all the buzz is about. All of our studios offer amazing deals and promotions for new students.

  • “My Dailey practice has taught me that when you are preparing for something challenging inside and outside the studio you need to breathe to make space for it. This committed practice inside and outside the studio has taught me to have a strong foundation, align then move.
