Train in Tranquility

At Moving Moxie, we work with our clients to increase body awareness and build fluid strength in a supportive, joyful and warm environment.

We have created a rejuvenating space surrounded by beautiful natural light and native foliage, tucked inside a quiet wooded corner of SW Portland.

Our Approach

We take a personal, open and friendly approach to Pilates. We believe that asking questions and having fun should be a part of your Pilates experience. We fine tune our exercises to overcome physical limitations while maximizing the movement’s benefit.

Instructor Mckenzie provides insightful visuals and personalized evaluations, ensuring proper body positioning for a challenging, strength-building workout.

Who we work with

Our clients vary in experience, fitness level, ability, weight, shape, size and flexibility. Many of them have injuries or other restrictions that make exercise difficult (or even detrimental). What they share is the determination to improve their quality of life. We are here to support that mission!

Our highly customized method of training allows us to craft individualized experiences for our clients, each day that they come in.
