The instructors do not instruct at all they simply count to 10 for each exercise. I’ve never seen anything so lazy, but they do not tell people if they are doing something incorrectly, they do not give reminders about posture — they simply do not seem interested at all. Machines are old, uneven and squeaky. This place will not stay in business, and I would not go back even if it were free.
Yes the studio is small and inside a gym and no windows, but I think that’s the best part since there are no distractions and I have the attention of the instructor. My work out experience was fantastic and my instructor was Heather, I was able to book 4 classes in advance with no problem. I totally recommend this place!!!
I would not recommend this groupon. This isn't a pilates studio- its 4 reformers in the upstairs of a gym. 1 of them is ripped up and the machines are dated overall. The first class I took had a fine teacher, but the second one was the worst class I've ever taken in my life. I have practiced Pilates on and off on Reformers and Cadillacs for more than 5 years, and the teacher of this class was downright dangerous in terms of the lack of proper instruction, routines inappropriate for the level of the class, the manner of guidance and the speed at which it was given. I contacted the studio to complain and never heard back. Then again It took me more than a week to hear from them to validate my groupon to begin with, so I am not surprised. The gym also didn't have a working public restroom the first time I went? There are many great studios in the Studio City area, but this is not one of them.

Pilates Reformer: Lie Back and Get Fit
The Pilates Reformer can aid hundreds of exercises. Get to know this piece of complex equipment with Groupon’s introduction.
Though its system of straps, springs, and pulleys may seem complex, the idea behind the Pilates Reformer is simple: added resistance. The large rectangular apparatus, created to fortify Joseph Pilates’s body-conditioning regimen, requires its users to simultaneously battle the forces generated by the machine and their own body weight. Its many components, including an adjustable foot bar and interchangeable springs that modify the level of difficulty, assist users as they perform more than 400 distinct exercises from the Pilates pantheon. The carriage—a sliding, cushioned platform on wheels— resides in the middle of the frame, where exercisers stand, kneel, sit, or recline as they push off the foot bar or pull on straps connected to the pulleys. This open design allows for free range of motion during total-body workouts designed to bolster flexibility, posture, and lean-muscle strength.
Reportedly, Joseph Pilates designed his first incarnation of the Pilates Reformer to help bedridden patients work out, outfitting a hospital bed with straps and springs. Since then, his invention has spread far beyond hospital walls and has become a ubiquitous staple in Pilates facilities everywhere.
