Our beautiful studio is the creation of our owner, Robert Turner, who opened breathe in 2014. He envisioned inviting select wellness professionals to share the space, serving clients with the highest quality of care and expertise. In addition to Pilates, the breathe studio is home to the dedicated practices listed below, all of which are locally-owned and managed. We’re proud to offer our clients the only GYROTONIC® studio in Central Kentucky, and we invite you to learn more about all of our unique practices listed below. All are available by appointment only, so please register for a session on their MINDBODY app or call the individual professional before you visit us at 250 Walton Avenue, Suite 156.
