The Best Pilates in San Francisco

Group Classes & Private Pilates

Our San Francisco Pilates studio believes in Movement for the Modern Body™. With this approach, we focus on understanding the relationship between physical training & exercise, and the needs of the body for strength, flexibility, and balance.

Our Pilates focuses on the principles of utilizing core strength, body control, precision, and flow of functional movement with sequenced breath. Maiden Lane Studios emphasizes balance and efficiency in our approach to Pilates training.

Maiden Lane Studios’ Pilates program provides the best high-quality instruction available, working closely with our clients to achieve their goals, whether that’s for increased strength, flexibility, balance, injury rehabilitation, etc. Pilates is a fundamental tool for comprehensively improving fitness and keeping the body healthy and strong for men and women of all ages.

Our Pilates programming is thoughtful, effective, and most importantly, safe. Each member of our instructional staff has extensive training from a highly-respected Pilates Method Alliance accredited certification programs.

Our San Francisco Pilates studio is fully equipped with state-of-the-art reformers, trapeze and towers, chairs, barrels and arcs, and all necessary accessories. We feature the Balanced Body®, Allegro® 2 reformers for our private Pilates program and group apparatus classes. We use only the most versatile Pilates reformers on the market, the Allegro® 2, allowing our clients endless possibilities in movement and training.

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.
