Not sure where to begin?

  • Quality is more important than quantity (our group classes have no more than 6 students!). You'll never get lost in a group class with us; 
  • We believe the more you understand exactly what your body is supposed to be doing (and HOW to do it), the more you'll be able to harness the power of your mind to create the most transformative workout possible;
  • Knowledge is power—the more you know about your body, the more you'll feel confident making decisions about your health;
  • You have amazing potential, and we can help you discover it;
  • Your body’s ability to transform and heal is amazing, and we can help you tap into that ability;
  • Your workout is supposed be enjoyable and something you look forward to doing;
  • Sessions at Kona Pilates go beyond the physical: your workout can help support your personal growth on all levels with infinite possibilites.
  • Transformation is possible no matter where you are starting and where you desire to go – together, we’ll get you where you want to be.

We all know that “one size fits all” is a myth. All bodies are unique and different and need to treated as such. You want your clothes to fit you and to look good on you, right? So if “one size fits all” doesn’t fit the bill with your clothing, why would you choose a “one size fits all” workout? Because that’s what you get at most gyms and large group classes: exercise programs designed for the masses. The gym and large class workout may fulfill a subset of your body’s needs, but if you want real transformation, or if you just happen not to be a “one size fits all” human, then you’ll need to break out of the gym and large class workout.

Give us a call or text, send us an email, or simply book your first appointment and together we’ll chart the course for your success. We believe in you!

"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."

-- Kate


"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!" 

-- Mary Lou S.

"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!"
