About Maiden Lane Studios

Maiden Lane Studios opened in 2012 at 80 Maiden Lane, as San Francisco’s premier studio for Lifestyle Fitness™, setting a new standard for high-quality fitness and lifestyle services ever since. The studio was created out of a desire to provide more effective, thoughtful, and intelligent Pilates, barre, and yoga training, all set in a chic yet warm environment.
We find that smaller, intimate-sized classes, and highly trained and experienced instructors and staff, set us apart from the big-box gyms and even other boutique studios. Maiden Lane Studios is owned by Bay Area natives and is proudly owner-operated as well.
We are committed to our clients, treating and paying our staff and instructors exceptionally well, and to the betterment of our community & environment.
We hope you’ll join us as your studio of choice for Pilates, barre, yoga, and Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST).
At Maiden Lane Studios, We Believe In
1. Intelligent and Results-Driven Training Methods
We believe in the intelligent and proven training methods. Unlike studios that operate with a “fad fitness” mentality, we instead focus on anatomy, physiology, and functional movement principles to effectively create balanced strength, proper alignment, increase flexibility, and lean, happy bodies. Our movement modalities complement one another, and are beneficial for all kinds of bodies.
2. Small, Intimate Sized Classes
At Maiden Lane Studios we offer some of the smallest class sizes in San Francisco. This ensures that our classes are not only safe, but more effective than the super-sized classes found at other studios in the city. Our intimate sized classes allow for a more personal, non-intimidating experience, with instructors easily being able to correct and maintain good form for each individual in class.
3. Experienced Instructors and a High Level of Service
We believe we all deserve to get the “celebrity” treatment in our pursuit of good health and fitness, with the best instructors, a high level of attention and results, and genuine care. Maiden Lane Studios carefully hires our instructors based on a number of factors:

  • Our instructors have several years of experience working with individuals with a wide variety of needs, from those looking to get in better shape, to clients wanting to increase their athletic performance, to those with mild to severe injuries and movement disabilities.
  • Our instructors are able to tailor sessions and workout programs to our clients, ensuring they are effective and fit their lifestyle.
  • All of our instructors have been certified through extensive, highly respected, PMA and Yoga Alliance accredited certification programs.
  • And very importantly, our instructors and staff are professional, warm, and passionate about helping our clients achieve their goals.
4. Welcoming and Supportive Environment
Maiden Lane Studios is an inviting yet chic environment where you can get more out of your workout. With the importance of physical fitness in our everyday lives, we believe that a studio should be beautiful, clean, and convenient, with extra amenities such as lockers and towel service. Our supportive community of instructors and staff are helpful, professional, and personable. We are truly passionate about cultivating this positive environment within our studio, classes, and sessions.

Maiden Lane Studios is the absolute best for Pilates and Barre Classes in San Francisco. I was introduced to the studio last year through lululemon and so glad I found my go-to place for an incredible strength training workout.

Maiden Lane Studios is clean, well-appointed, with the latest in Pilates equipment. The instructors are knowledgeable, gracious and encouraging, and sticklers for correct form (as well they should be), and they push you to your limits but not over, which is right where I like to be.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I am not a fan of regular “gyms” and prefer more boutique style and this is it! I’m returning to exercising after an injury/surgery and they have taken great care of me. Making sure to adjust accordingly in each of the classes.
