AV Studio Milton Reformer Pilates & Barre Studio Logo

Welcome to AV Studio

We are so pleased you have chosen our studio!  AV Studio is an all inclusive, boutique studio featuring pilates on the reformer, barre classes, and many other options including Reformer Sculpt, Barre/Reformer Combo and others.  No matter your path, we are here to support and encourage you in your journey to physical well being and good health

Why Pilates?

Pilates is a non impact, full body strengthening and lengthening system.  While the main focus is on the muscles of the core, all large muscles of the lower body plus the upper  body are challenged in this versatile workout.  Besides strength and flexibility, Pilates focuses on balance, concentration, posture and proper body alignment.  Whether a pro athlete, a newcomer to exercise or a stay at home parent, pilates helps develop the whole body.  Try it by yourself or bring a friend!  You will be so glad you did!


AV Studio welcomes clients of all ages, genders and levels to try our Reformer Pilates and All Levels Barre classes. All Reformer Pilates classes on Stott Pilates by Merrithew equipment.

Cheryl Tarpy

Cheryl discovered Pilates and immediately loved the discipline and benefits of the practice. With exercise being part of her daily routine for many years she became more interested in the total/mind body focus of Pilates.  She loved the challenging workouts and quickly realized that it was the perfect cross training regime to strengthen, tone, and stretch for the body. After years of encouraging friends to try Pilates she decided to start her training w/ Balanced Body.

For the past 10 years she has practiced several times a week under Alison. She has often said "Pilates (Alison) thought me how to exercise". The instructing, knowledge of the body and cueing is key to developing a strong practice. She looks forward to introducing you to the fabulous world of Pilates


Holly Nichols

Holly is a movement enthusiast, visual artist, ad author and fully certified in the classical Pilates method. She fell in love with Pilates as it combined the joy she felt in the practice of dance through her childhood and high school years with her interest in athletics as an adult. Holly is particularly intrigued by the History of Pilates or "Contrology," as its founder, Joes Pilates, called it. A believer in joyful movement, Holly enjoys working with clients and tailoring a safe and custom experience to each individual, using the method to achieve their goals, and making them more efficient movers both in and out of the studio.

Joan Gateley O'Toole

"I have always found [Alison] to be professional and knowledgeable. She is able to tailor each workout to fit the individual needs of her clients even in a group class setting.  Alison is always researching and implementing new Reformer exercises so the classes will be challenging and different. I would recommend her to anyone looking to take Pilates and Pilates reformer classes.
