Pilates Place

A place of positive energy for everyone.

Pilates Place is a studio located in Santa Monica, California. The main goal at Pilates Place is to have our clients walk away from the studio with a feeling of confidence, both physically and mentally. While the external benefits of Pilates include toned muscles, flattened abdominals and improved posture, the benefits of a centered body are deeper than a mirrored reflection. Reduced stress, increased metabolism, and improved bone density are all results of the body in correct alignment. Pilates Place is a place of positive energy for everyone.
