Common Questions

How is The Dailey Method® different from other fitness studio programs?

The exercises are non-impact, but are weight bearing which provides students the most efficient method to exercise the muscles at their core. students see physical results quickly because the muscles respond naturally to this approach. We also have a very strong focus on educating our students on working with a neutral spine position, which is the healthiest, most natural position for our alignment. Unlike a large traditional fitness class, students receive individualized attention.
