Michael Lang is the Fitness Director of Toledo Ballet Pilates & Wellness. Michael’s years of experience as a Broadway Dancer / High Aerial Tumbler / Martial Artist / Stuntman have made him well versed in the arts of movement, flexibility, and mindfulness.
In 1994 Michael began his healing arts journey at IPSB in Santa Monica, CA. After moving to NYC, he continued his studies and graduated from the world renowned Swedish Institute. Michael has worked his bodywork magic on many Broadway Performers, Professional Athletes, Marathon Runners / Tri-athletes, and everyone in between.
After experiencing a knee injury as a tumbler / dancer on Broadway, Michael was introduced via his PT to the therapeutic exercises of Pilates. He quickly realized that many of the Pilates exercises had been covertly introduced to him over many years through his life long studies as a dancer. Michael studied and became certified through Cynthia Taylor at the Pilates Center of Toledo and through the Pilates Method Alliance. Michael is constantly on a quest to learn and closely studies the current Pilates gurus.

It’s hard to explain but the Rossiter session was as if I could literally feel the muscles become more smooth beneath my skin. And, at the end of the first session I could completely touch my chin to my chest. I haven’t been able to do that in nearly 15 years! I would highly recommend this to anyone who sits at a computer for hours at a time.
Thanks so much!
