"The heart of the Pilates work is of course in the practitioner - whether a beginner or an advanced client - but the best vehicle for cultivating this deep strength is absolutely the Gratz equipment - there is no substitute! Gratz equipment's simple, effective, challenging, and streamlined framework provides the ideal foundation for a practitioner to cultivate and hone the strength and grace inherent in the Authentic Pilates method."
Brooke Tyler, Studio Owner, L.Ac., Pilates Teacher Trainer
Clasique Acupuncture & Pilates Studio
At Clasique Acupuncture & Pilates Studio we inspire people to find their own energetic wellness. Our studio proudly offers two distinct, yet deeply interwoven, modalities of healing. Our acupuncture training is rooted in Classical Chinese medicine. Our Classical Pilates teaching is directly tied to master teacher Dorothee VandeWalle and our studio offerings include private and semiprivate lessons, and small group equipment and mat classes. Clasique is a fully equipped Pilates studio with all Gratz apparatus. The space is bright, the professionals are talented and compassionate, and the clients leave feeling strong and empowered.
Clasique is the creation of owner Brooke Tyler who is a licensed acupuncturist, Classical Pilates instructor and Pilates Teacher Trainer. Brooke trained in the Authentic Pilates method with Master Teacher Dorothee VandeWalle in Seattle, WA in 2003. With VandeWalle as her mentor, Brooke is now trained as a level two Teacher Trainer under the Metropolitan Authentic Training with VandeWalle. As a satellite studio for the M.A.T. Program, Clasique embodies the classical Pilates method and uses exclusively Gratz apparatus.
When Brooke Tyler opened Clasique in 2009 in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, she brought Classical Chinese Medicine and Classical Pilates under one roof. The high quality of training, professionalism, client service, pristine studio space, and clear authenticity in business vision make Clasique an incomparable asset in the community. Tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is a vibrant community filled with strong athletes, health conscious individuals, and working professionals. As part of the business mission, Clasique's work extends beyond the studio doors and into the community with active volunteer work teaching Pilates to kids at the local Boys and Girls Club, Girls on the Run, and work in free acupuncture clinics for the community.
Everyday in the studio, alongside treating acupuncture patients, Brooke works with clients on a deep level of self cultivation and personal empowerment through fun, dynamic, challenging workouts! Now with a team of acupuncturists, Pilates instructors, and studying apprentices, Brooke is able to spread her passion and talents further into the community. As the client demand keeps increasing for this type of positive, challenging, custom Pilates workout offered at Clasique, Brooke is looking for classically certified instructors to join her team!
