A San Francisco pilates franchise that made it to Shanghai in early 2018. They offer pilates on reformers, as well as barre and boxing in two well-lit and well-curated studios. Studio A is about the pilates you might know, including Pilates Pro Beginner Class, Pilates Pro Class, Pilates 40-Works, whereas studio B offers a wider variety of small group fitness classes, including Ballet Bootcamp, BarrePro, Energy Kickboxing, matBox, Mat Pilates, Yogalates and Tabata.The pilates room is shabby chic with exposed brick, and the ballet barre room's bright and clean. Staff are friendly and classes are run at a pace that's alright for beginners.
Beginner Pilates Class is primarily designed for clients who have never tried Pilates and want to learn the fundamentals on which to build their practice.

This class pace is faster than the Beginner Class and includes more challenging and complex movements that require more muscle strength and body coordination.

Ballet Bootcamp is a ballet-inspired fitness program that incorporates cardio training. Through movements enhancing balance, precision, and creativity, it is an ideal program for optimizing your mind and body.
Created by Juliu Horvath, inspired to create movement principles that offer the same benefits also found in yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai chi, but are not derived from these other exercise modalities.
A Pilates ProWorks original that brings together Kickboxing, Mat Pilates, and Yoga in one powerful full-body workout, offering an intensive session with a round of high-intensity kickboxing with a punching bag.
When yoga is combined with pilates, it will take you through an invigorating vinyasa flow, core building pilates series and gentle stretch. Great for muscle toning, endurance and flexibility.
