    • Many (most!) sessions combine both equipment and mat (+ props!) exercises based on clients’ goals and preferences

  • Your Trainer: Paula is a BASI Pilates Instructor. In 2022 she completed comprehensive teacher training in mat as well as all Pilates apparatus (reformer, cadillac, chair, spine corrector, and more). She has passed all examinations and the 500 hour practice requirement. She has been teaching at her home studio for 2 years and also trains clients in Oakland in private, semi-private, and group reformer and equipment sessions. Paula is a board-certified health coach (NBC-HWC) and holds certs in personal training (CPT), group fitness (GFI),  & behavior change (BCS). She’s also a health & wellness nut with a masters degree in Public Health from Cal (Go Bears!).

  • Benefits: Pilates is FUN, effective, and safe! Improve strength, range of motion, balance and coordination. If you’d like to break a sweat, we can make that happen too :D. Pilates is also excellent for rehabilitation after injury or surgery, as well as during pre and postnatal periods.
