Background

A lifelong fitness enthusiast, athlete and reformed cardio-addict, Lisa had tried just about every fitness class and workout trend. After running numerous marathons, half marathons, and even one 24 hour all night race, Lisa was sidelined with a foot injury that translated across her body to a gait issue. Through the incredible help of physical therapy, Lisa discovered Pilates and was able to relieve pain and become stronger, leaner and more flexible.
Her interest in mind-body awareness, anatomy, physiology and movement encouraged her continued study and desire to bring this same experience of strength, accomplishment and healing to others. Lisa received her Pilates training through Balanced Body. She has worked with clients across all ages and levels of fitness, and believes that anyone at any stage can find success in the Pilates studio. When working with clients, Lisa hopes to help them find a fun workout, new challenges, and to leave the studio with a sense of accomplishment and feeling more confident in their bodies.

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!
