Pilates of Old Town – The Studio

HI! I am Marie, welcome to our website and our Studio!

I opened the studio in 2005 in a small 600 sq. foot space. Never one to bite off more than I could chew, I started small. There was just enough room for a Cadillac Combo, one Reformer, and a Chair. To begin connecting with the community, I started offering Pilates Mat Classes through the City of Tustin, Parks and Recreation Department, (something that continues still to this day), as well as Private Sessions and Semi Private Sessions. We rather quickly outgrew this tiny studio and needed more space.

Two and a half years later, a larger space opened up across the courtyard, so I took a leap of faith and we moved in 2008. We had room to add 3 more Reformers with Towers, 2 more Chairs and a larger Pilates Mat area. As our clientele grew, Instructors were added one by one. In the new space, there was soon a satisfying hum of energy from clients learning and enjoying our new Pilates offerings.

In 2015, due to my interest in Classsical Pilates, we added a Ped-o-Pul, a Gratz Classical Reformer, a Ladder Barrel and a Baby Arm Chair. Our clients enjoy the versatility of the different Pilates Apparatus, which keeps their sessions fresh and challenging.

Today, Pilates of Old Town is home to several dedicated Pilates professionals, who share the studio’s philosophy and enjoy teaching in our lovely boutique setting! Between us all, we have 64 years of combined experience teaching Pilates!

The studio has grown beyond my expectations. We have loved serving the Tustin and surrounding communities all these years, and look forward to many more years of providing you with PILATES EXCELLENCE, so you may Build YOUR Pilates Body!!!
