We opened our doors in January of 2019 with the goal of helping our Maui community and visitors to experience the benefits of the Pilates method to improve each persons' life positively. Our studio is welcoming and intimate. We believe in making a personal connection with each of our clients so we can build a lasting relationship that will grow and inspire through our Pilates journey together.
Our studio has 5 reformers, towers, mats and spine correctors for our small group Pilates lessons which allows us to pay personal attention and guide each person through an effective and safe workout. We also offer one-on-one and semi-private lessons, ideal to customize a Pilates program specific to your needs, goals, and schedule. Our one-on-one and semi-private lessons include exercises using various apparatus designed by Mr. Pilates including the Reformer, Trapeze Table, Ladder Barrel, Wunda Chair, High Chair, and Spine Corrector. Additionally we offer meditation lessons to enhance mindfulness and mind-body connection.
Our team of teachers come from diverse backgrounds including dance, fitness, and medical. Each teacher brings a unique perspective with one common goal in mind: YOUR SUCCESS. We believe every one can benefit from Pilates practice. We also understand that every body is different and every individual learns differently. Our teaching style is supportive, encouraging, with compassion and Aloha. Our experience allows us to provide modifications if necessary to maximize the benefits for each person from the Pilates method.

Kellie O'Rourke is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and received her Masters degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics. She started teaching fitness classes over 15 years ago while she was in college and fell in love with it. Kellie earned her Pilates Mat teacher certification shortly after her Pilates journey began in 2015, and soon afterwards received her Reformer Level 1 and Reformer Level 2 certification. Rounding off her Pilates teaching credentials, Kellie was then able to acquire her comprehensive Pilates Apparatus certification through Peak Pilates. Even though Kellie's training began with the classical Pilates method, Kellie enjoys expanding and adding contemporary movement in her teaching style. Kellie is also certified to teach Yoga, Barre, TRX, and Sculpting classes. She believes in empowering fitness and inspiring people to fall in love with movement. We are grateful for having landed Kellie in our studio. You can find her teaching Monday and Tuesday evenings as well as Thursdays mornings.
