​​​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."

-- 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!"

We believe...

  • Quality is more important than quantity. We specialize in private and semi-private (Duet) instruction along with boutique class sizes so small, it feels like your own personal training hour. You'll never get lost in the masses with us; 
  • Both of our instructor/owners have thousands of hours of movement arts education and 25+ years of experience across multiple disciplines AND we are both licensed medical massage therapists with extensive training in injury prevention and rehabilitative exercise making us two of the most educated movement arts professionals in all of Southern California and the world;
  • As movement arts educators, we believe in teaching you exactly which muscles you're supposed to be using in each exercise, and what the goal of each exercise is, so that you'll get the most out of your workouts with us. We are constantly told how differently we teach and how that style helps the exercises & concepts make sense; 
  • Knowledge is power—the more you know about your body, the more you'll feel confident making decisions about your health and take what you learn in the studio out into your life;
  • We believe in "the honest hour" ~ our lessons are either a full 60 mins or 90 mins depending on the session type;
  • Comprehensive studio offerings keep your workouts interesting and fun while helping you achieve your fitness and wellness goals;
  • An exceptional selection of mind body spirit sessions will rejuvenate your muscles, relax your body and make you feel, and look, years younger;
  • Experience fitness like you’ve never experienced before. Our highly trained instructors will teach you the tricks of the trade in each session so you’ll leave the studio knowing a few new and essential tips to take from the studio and into your life!
  • Each night, rest your mind and your body while utilizing the core FUNdamental tools you’ve learned in our studio sanctuary as you easily unwind from your day, knowing you’re cared for by instructors who are truly committed to excellence and service;
  • Services personalized for your unique needs: from fitness and athletic performance enhancement to rehabilitating from injury, from surgery, or an accident (including TBI, stroke, whiplash);
  • Your workout is supposed be enjoyable and something you look forward to doing;
  • Transformation is possible no matter where you are starting and where you desire to go. We don't believe in "never" and neither should you!  Together, we’ll get you where you want to be.

Ready to get started?

We've got you covered! Many new students don't know whether to begin with Pilates, GYROTONIC®, Kona Pilates Bootie Barre®, GYROKINESIS®, or everything! All of these 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 our New Student Intro private lesson (see our Getting Started page), simply book your first lesson and let's get you moving! Together we’ll chart the course for your success. We believe in you!

Important note: While "technically" GYROKINESIS®, Kona Pilates' Bootie Barre® and Silk Suspension do not require any experience to begin, we HIGHLY recommend completing our single New Student Intro private lesson prior to your first class. This insures you are familiar with the concepts we use in class and helps you to get the most out of your lessons.
