Ready to get started?
We've got you covered! Many new students don't know whether to begin with Pilates, GYROTONIC®, or GYROKINESIS®. All three systems are amazing. We suggest you begin with Pilates, as learning how to properly activate your core and learning the basic principles of alignment will be used across all movement arts lessons we offer. And, some folks are simply drawn to one system over the other.
Since all training at the studio begins with introductory private lessons (see our Getting Started page), simply book your first sessions and let's get you moving! Together we’ll chart the course for your success. We believe in you!
(GYROKINESIS®, Barre and TRX do not require any experience to begin, although a single private lesson is highly encouraged to get the most out of your lessons.)
Praise for Kona Pilates...
"I've taken Pilates and GYROTONIC® lessons all over the world (I travel for a living). I have never had the superior level of instruction that I received from Laura before. Her ability to make you feel welcome and comfortable, plus her imagery and cueing helped me embody more in a single session that I have in years of study. If you are lucky enough to have Laura as your regular instructor, you are truly blessed. Laura, how about I pack you in my suitcase and bring you home with me? Thank you so very much."
"Suffering from back pain for most of my life, I'm always looking for alternative methods to minimize my discomfort. Laura and Steve have made a major contribution to achieving that goal. Their knowledge of anatomy, sense of compassion, level of enthusiasm and personalized approach make every session rewarding. Doesn't matter if it's a class or a private, they seriously yet cheerfully provide you with the opportunity to learn how to re-educate your body to make it work the way it's supposed to. Pilates and GYROTONIC® have been the only workout programs whose hourly routine I look forward to and whose end comes too quickly. My doctors have watched my strength grow and my pain scale decline and fully credit my working with Steve and Laura on a regular basis for these accomplishments. I can't thank them enough for all they've done and continue to do to help me feel healthier, both physically and mentally. Thanks guys!"

"As a professional athlete, I thought my body was strong and flexible. A friend suggested that I try Pilates because I had broken my ankle and could not train in my regular sport (professional surfing). I began working with Laura and Steve at Kona Pilates. Wow. What a difference this has made in my body...and my performance on my board. Thank you!"
-- Ayako M.
