Maui Pilates Studio offers Pilates and Meditation Lessons, as well as Online Live Streaming Lessons and On Demand Pilates Mat Videos.
Our teaching style is supportive, encouraging, with compassion and Aloha. We believe every one can benefit from Pilates practice. We also understand that every body is different and every individual learns differently. Our experience allows us to provide modifications if necessary to maximize the benefits for each person from the Pilates method.
Some people prefer to practice Pilates one-on-one with a teacher in a private or semi-private lessons, while others prefer group lessons. One-on-one and semi-private lessons are ideal for a customized Pilates program specific to your needs, goals, and schedule. Our studio offers state of the art equipment including the Reformer, Trapeze Table, Ladder Barrel, Pilates Chairs, and Spine Corrector.
Our group lessons are small and limited to up to 5 participants. This allows our teachers to pay personal attention to guide you through an effective and safe workout. We offer group lessons on the different Pilates Apparatus as well as Pilates Mat Lessons.
Pilates Apparatus Lessons ~ are performed on different apparatus designed by Mr. Joseph Pilates, including the Reformer, the Tower, and Spine Corrector.
The Reformer is an apparatus that uses springs to provide resistance training. The springs attach from the frame of the apparatus to a carriage inside the frame. Performing pushing or pulling exercises make the carriage move and create tension on the springs.
The Tower is an apparatus that also uses springs to provide resistance training. The springs vary in length and in strength attached to a vertical frame on one end and attaches to handles, loops, and bars on the other end.
The Spine Corrector is an apparatus with a unique curvature design that provides the practitioner with body weight resistance to correct or restore the spine's natural curve.
Pilates Apparatus Lessons provide a well rounded full-body workout. Exercises are done in various positions including laying, sitting, kneeling, and standing.
Pilates Mat Lessons ~ are done on a padded raised mat with handles attach to it on one end, and a strap attach to it on the opposite end. Mat exercises created by Mr. Pilates provides a complete full-body workout using your own body while performing exercises on the mat. Sometimes Mat lessons includes the use of the Spine Corrector and small props such as balls, the Magic Circle, and resistance bands.
On Wednesdays at 8:30 am, we offer Apparatus for Kupuna Lessons, designed to help our Kupuna stay active, keep moving, and stay healthy through Pilates practice. This class has a slower pace and an easier transition from one exercise to the next. One of the reasons we love the Pilates Method so much is because it's designed to benefit anybody at any age that Practices Pilates consistently.
On Saturdays at 11:00 am, we offer Apparatus for Beginners Lessons, designed to teach beginner level exercises on the Reformer, the Tower, and the Spine Corrector. This class has a slower pace to make sure beginners feel comfortable and confident with their Pilates practice. If you have completed the Pilates Foundation Series and are new to Pilates, we think you're going to like this class.
Live streaming Pilates Mat Lessons ~ With the wonders of modern-day technology we are happy to offer Pilates Mat Lessons from the comfort of your home while teachers guide you from the studio live streaming via zoom. Our certified experienced teachers will guide you through each exercise, provide demonstrations, and watch you carefully, making sure you are getting the most out of each exercise.

On Demand Pilates Mat Videos ~ access our videos any time, and any place. Some of the On Demand Videos are full lessons that vary in length. Others are shorter, targeted for specific regions i.e abdominal, arms, upper body, legs etc. These videos are not intended to replace Pilates lessons at the studio, however it might be a great supplement to your existing Pilates program, as well as a great option to maintain your Pilates practice while you're traveling.
Meditation Lessons ~ designed to increase your mindfulness and mind-body connection. Meditation offers to show us how to live within the reality that we have. It’s not about escaping from the reality that we live in. During a typical meditation class we start with conscious breathing exercises as a way to prime the mind and body. We then do a guided practice focusing on mindfulness and being in the present moment through breath, physical sensations and sounds.
All Pilates lessons are 55 minutes long. Meditation lessons are 45 minutes long. Per Maui County regulations, our services are by appointment only as we recover from the covid-19 pandemic. Advanced registration is required.
