"…Sheetal is, without a doubt, the most knowledgeable Pilates trainer I have ever had the pleasure of working with! She gets results!"

- Judy S.

Welcome to “The Well: Pilates, Movement and Wellness with Sheetal Gandhi”, a nurturing space and studio that offers one-on-one Pilates Reformer and Tower sessions with a focus on proper alignment, building strength and reducing pain.  We also provide private and group movement/dance instruction in Tap, Jazz, Modern dance and more.  From August - October 2023, Sheetal will be out on maternity leave.  The health and well-being of her clients is of utmost importance to her, so during this time she has some fantastic instructors subbing in for her.  You can find all the instructor bios here.

Are privates right for you?


Privates are designed to help you reach your goals as quickly and safely as possible.  They are great for anyone, from beginners to professional athletes and everyone in between; for those working through injuries or specific muscle imbalances, those who are recovering from surgery, for teachers wanting to deepen their movement education, pregnant, pre and postnatal women and those with other special needs.  Sheetal’s certification is in Pilates, but she is experienced in a number of alternate somatic practices such as Feldenkrais, The Melt Method, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization and Corrective Exercise for Functional Fitness.  She draws on her wealth of mind and body knowledge to help her clients strengthen, mobilize, heal, educate and transform their bodies.  Move Well.  Live Well.


Dance and Movement at “The Well” includes classes in Tap, Improvisation, Bollywood Dance, Modern and Jazz.



Tap dancing is great exercise for the body and the mind, not to mention a truly American art form, with a rich and meaningful history.  Currently we are offering private and small group Tap dance classes for beginning and intermediate level students.  A private class costs $75 and a small group class with 3-5 people costs $20-$25 per person.  Contact Sheetal for more information if you are interested.


Sheetal is a joy to work with – her lovely voice, gentle manner, deep knowledge and creativity make every Pilates session a satisfying experience.

Sheetal is sensitive and inventive in guiding a 75yr old and 95yr old, each with different Pilates experience and abilities, through classes that exercise and challenge appropriately (and therapeutically when necessary). With her help we are keeping active and pain free well past our “use by” date!

Her classes are varied and focused on different body areas so that we get a thorough whole-body workout.

Of all the teachers we have had over the years, Sheetal stands out!

Sheetal works with me on improving my core strength and flexibility; I must say that I've been blown away by my improvement in both my strength and stamina.

I cannot recommend Sheetal highly enough!
