As our provincial government has begun to ease restrictions on social distancing we will be joining the slow re opening of the economy by returning to the stuio with cautious excitement. Starting MAY 19, 2020 we will be offering Private Sessions. If you are interested in signing up for classes or being placed in a cohort, please contact the studio. We will continue to offer online content please follow us on INSTAGRAM where you can see videos and links to online workouts.
I was first introduced to Marlene and Pilates while seeing a physiotherapist to rehab a work-related hip injury. Marlene understands my goals and directs me in exercises geared toward meeting them, she gives feedback and realistic appraisals of where I am at and how I can improve, and has a quirky sense of humor which she uses to explain things and help get me through each session."
-Christopher, Landscaper, West Vancouver
I leave every class breathing a little deeper and standing a little straighter. As I get older and the strains of everyday life start to take their toll on me, Marlene has helped adapt the classes to target the muscles I need to work to stay pain-free and strong. Plus, she always has a fresh way to cue an exercise so that I can work deeper.
-Laura, Language Professor, Vancouver, Age 37
"Marlene has taught me so much! She has a deep understanding of the body and a keen eye. In a glance, she sees where I am ‘off’ and immediately helps me understand it, then guides me in how to correct it. Marlene is devoted to learning and refining her knowledge and she shares her expertise and insights with enthusiasm. I’m so grateful she is doing this work and feel so fortunate that I found her."
- Kim B., Homeopath, Vancouver, Age 55
"When I started going to Marlene's classes I had a chronic knee problem. That is mostly gone now as a result of the strengthening and stabilizing that my body has undergone. She combines a great technical understanding of how the exercises work on my body and has an engaging manner and great sense of humor."

"If you blink your eyes you might walk right by this small studio, but I'm glad I didn't. Marlene gives 110%, making sture every session moves you toward your goals, no matter what level you are at. I've recieved powerfully effective workouts here that have changed my body for the better.
