The Instructors at Maiden Lane Studios



Kristen initially found Pilates in her hometown of Boston in 2005. After spending many of her high school and college years dancing classical ballet, Kristen gravitated to the precise and targeted movements of the Pilates repertoire. When Kristen relocated to the Bay Area in October 2013, she found Maiden Lane Studios, where she felt completely at home. With the encouragement of Kelsey and the MLS staff, Kristen began her Pilates educational journey at Body Arts and Sciences (BASI) in May 2014, and was certified in 2017. Kristen is excited to share her knowledge with MLS students in her athletic classes and sessions. She incorporates contemporary movements, that challenge and will help progress students in their Pilates practice.

Fact. I'm obsessed with Maiden Lane Studios. Not in the creepy, restraining order type of way...but in the go 6-times a week type of way. I'll be honest, I never truly got the whole barre craze...until coming here. The classes are amazing (to the credit of the kick-ass instructors), and the studio is absolutely beautiful.


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. It's like you're in someone's living room as the decor and feel of the place is so gorgeous and inviting.


I've tried other barre classes in the city and felt bored because they seemed the same, class after class. Not here. Every class challenges you and each instructor has something great to offer. I also LOVE that they offer more than just barre. Yoga, check. Pilates, check. It's a dream studio come true.


Beautiful, uber clean and most importantly an amazing talented and caring staff to make your every goal a reality. I have some very specific needs and have been challenged and accommodated beyond my expectations. Would never consider anywhere else...They create a supportive and positive environment unlike any other studio I've tried. Love it here!


Wow. I'm *STILL* feeling pumped 4 hours after my frist Booty Barre class this morning! This studio is fantastic and booty barre is seriously fun. I'd definitely recommend taking the 8:30am class with Naimah. She's an awesome teacher and totally kept me motivated throughout the class (even when it was kicking my ass). Excited to make visits here a regular part of my workout week!
