Lily Horowitz – Founder of The Core Method Pilates

Lily K

Founder, The Core Method® and Kidlates®

Core Method Pilates was founded in 1998 by Lily K, a leading and published certified Pilates instructor with over 30 years of experience in the fitness industry.

Lily was first exposed to Pilates 19 years ago as a student of the method.  After personally realizing the benefits of the work, seeing changes in her own body and physical ability, she was then trained and certified in the method.

Since then, Lily has developed an instructional method based on the founding principles of Joseph H. Pilates and the integration of other core development techniques to create a total body experience for her clients.

We are now offering Core Method Circuit classes on the reformer, tower and chair.  Done in groups of three in 20 minute increments giving a total body workout using equipment only.

Lily is also the founder of Kidlates® and has done extensive work with children at all levels of ability. In collaboration with a variety of professionals including Pediatricians, Child Psychologists, OT's, PT's and Speech Therapists, she has emerged with a method and a program that can be applied to children both learning challenged and non learning challenged.

It’s Lily or Lipo – Lily has changed my entire body!

I have been a client for many years and before meeting Lily my lower body was way bigger than my upper body. Today, my body looks completely different and my hips are now in perfect proportion with my upper body!

I went to look for dresses for my son’s wedding and my sales person, who’s known me for years, asked me if I had a butt lift. Thanks Lily!

My stomach is flatter and my legs are toned!

I used to be very unaware of my body and its neutral; now I can catch myself sitting out of neutral and then I hear Lily’s voice and remember N2S: navel to spine.

I grew an inch!!!!

The Core Method® is better than spanx ‘cause it shaped my body so I no longer need spanx!

I fit into pants I haven’t fit into for 5 years!

My posture has changed and my uneven shoulders are no longer uneven.

I have osteo and a compression fracture in my spine. Not only has Lily helped my change my posture, I grew an inch at my last doctor appointment and my compression fracture is moving back into place.

I’ve been a client for many years, when I first started I couldn’t lift a 3 pound weight, now I can do twice that and my entire body has changed! Recently at my son’s wedding, I wanted to wear a banner saying “body by Lily”
