Eb Studio

Evolved Body Studio is the answer to your movement questions. Located just east of Sacramento in Gold River, CA, EB Studio is a boutique movement space dedicated to the education of solid movement practices, creativity, and self-inquiry. We use the Pilates Method, John F. Barnes Myofascial Release, CoreAlign, and many playfully unique movement explorations to learn how and where to move in order to feel and be our best. While most studios focus on training specific exercises and addressing acute pains, EB Studio specializes in helping students address exploration strategies, movement habits, and resolving the long-standing tensions that create painful episodes within their body by facilitating behavioral changes through movement practice. EB Studio is for the attentive, thoughtfully-minded, curious student looking for fun & freedom in movement. Let owner, James Crader, create a program for you that will help to resolve pain, increase body awareness, balance, strength, mobility, and resiliency while intriguing your body to move in the right direction toward your personal goals.

I’m honored to endorse James Crader’s approach to teaching Pilates. James is joining me and other colleagues in the Pilates community who are standing on the shoulders of Joseph Pilates’ vision with a more updated, biointelligent understanding of whole body health. His vision empowers athletes to embody movements as ‘effort with ease’ giving them a cutting edge, while also providing them with a longer career in the sport they love
