Pilates Programs We Offer

Pilates Fitness

Pilates is a body-conditioning routine that builds flexibility, muscle strength and coordination (making muscles lean and elongated), endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core or center. Pilates allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty, from beginner to advanced. Clients can proceed at their individual pace, and intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.

Pilates Physical Therapy

We have licensed physical therapists that are not only manual therapy specialists, but also Pilates instructors. Many of our clients find this beneficial, as they can make the transition from physical therapy to a Pilates fitness routine, as Pilates itself is inherently therapeutic and rehabilitative.

The therapists at SDSM integrate the science of physical therapy with the art of movement, combining manual therapy with Pilates principles. We achieve superior results by focusing on improving quality of movement to restore proper biomechanics to all the joints of the body. We will work to correct the underlying causes of injuries to ensure long-term results. We work as a team with our patients to educate them in individualized home programs and posture correction. We pride ourselves in the results of our integrated programs!

Rehab Pilates

Whether you have completed your Pilates physical therapy or are not quite ready for a fitness class, our Rehab Pilates classes offer a safe and effective venue to strengthen and build yourself up to return to normal exercise. Class size is small with detail on modifications and education that allow you to succeed in your exercise progression.

Pilates for Back Care (Level 1 and Level 2)

Pilates performed with the proper form and sequence can be GOOD for your back, but not all the exercises are good for varying back issues. That is why we created Pilates for Back Care Level I and II, a Pilates and rehab-based class that fuses specific exercises from physical therapy, movement therapy, and Pilates in a step-by-step program to build up your core and stabilize your spine and pelvis, complete with an educational component to take care of your back! We will teach you how to identify your imbalances and provide you with exercise tools to get your back on track.

We also offer Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates classes for special populations and people with osteoporosis.

SDSM offers 3 types of Pilates classes:

  • Private Instruction - We encourage beginners to do at least 2-3 private sessions before deciding whether to continue with private instruction or move on to a duet/trio, or group class. Beginners are always surprised at the focus required to coordinate breathing, pelvic floor control, and body alignment. Private sessions are also recommended for those with any orthopedic limitations. Private sessions with one of our physical therapists are also available. Private sessions are by appointment only. Reserve your spot today!
  • Duet - Duet sessions are with 2 clients, and 1 instructor. Trio sessions are with 3 clients and 1 instructor. If you cannot get a friend or two to join you, we can match you up with clients also looking for a duet or trio. The attention you receive will be higher than what you’d get in a group class, but you will still get the benefit of working out with a friend, and greater cost savings compared with private sessions. Duet/Trio sessions are by appointment only. Reserve your spot today!
  • Group Classes - This is a Pilates San Diego class with 3 to 5 participants, and requires you to reserve your spot in advance, either online or by phone. We offer the following group classes: intermediate/advanced Pilates, advance Pilates, Therapeutic Pilates, and back care Pilates level one and two. Reserve your spot today!
