Meet Our Members

We know it’s unheard of, but we actually care about you.  No really!


Our programs are designed to guide and empower you from a newbie to Pilates School graduate.  Most stay in their first program for 18-24 months.

Afterwards many graduates stick around for life as open studio members.  Others take what they learned home and purchase in-home Pilates equipment.   A few graduates join our 2-year long Teacher certification program.

Meet Bill : Getting Back to Weightlifting

Bill and his awesome wife Kathrine found us through ClassPass.  Bill’s job required him to lift heavy boxes and crates which caused knee pain. His knee pain forced him to give up his favorite way to workout: weight lighting. Over six months with us Bill learned how to use his newly developed core muscles and leg strength to return to the weight room safely.

Being around Bill’s thirst to learn and heal his body combined with his work ethic was a pleasure. We loved having him in our program!

Yuva in India

Meet Yuva: A Pilates School Graduate

Yuva joined our program in late 2018, referred to us from physical therapy. She struggled with labored breathing and chronic pain in her upper back and left leg.  We still remember Yuva’s first session with her legs shaking, trying to do Pre-Pilates leg and footwork exercises. There were very tough moments where she felt she would be plagued with constant body pain for the rest of her life.

Fast-forward 14 months and she was a completely different person living a full life. The day she returned to Kartak dancing, one of her greatest passions in life was a truly wonderful day that Yuva worked very hard to earn. By the time she was ready to move out of the country she was practicing high Intermediate Classical Pilates exercises. Never again would she suffer from shoulder and neck pain, or labored breathing because no matter where she is in the world, she continues to keep a constant Pilates practice that she learned at the Pilates School SF.

Meet Rebecca

Rebecca started our program to develop her core muscles.  She suffered from low back and neck pain. Even throughout COVID closures Rebecca stayed committed to her two-three sessions a week.  She started in the Pre-Pilates system in 2019 and is now learning the Intermediate exercises on the reformer. She was so excited to finally learn Intermediate neck and upper back exercises to add to her regular at-home and on-the-road workouts.

The change to her lifestyle is dramatic. Rebecca is a writer, and she now has the tools to sit with good posture while she is writing. We are so proud of Rebecca; she is a rockstar!

Rebecca [on the left side] did not let COVID get in the way of her progress.  She did her first unassisted rollup happened during a COVID lockdown!! The look on her face says everything!

Ray & Rae – Founders and Co-owners

“I’m a working mom, so I don’t have time to waste! Ray and Rachael pack so much into their classes that it’s the most efficient exercise I can think of. They also know anatomy like no one, so no matter how challenging, classes are always safe. I have a history of lower back issues, but since I started going to the Pilates School SF, I’ve become much stronger, and the flare ups don’t happen anymore. And you’d think that after a few years at the same studio I might get bored, but I never have because no class is ever the same, plus the teachers’ energy is inspiring. They are also some of the funniest women in the business!”

Kate, Our Supermom

Will enjoys weight lifting, but experienced intermittent shoulder pain. He joined out program during in summer of 2021. We helped him discover that he needed to improve his core strength and flexibility. Currently, with more access to his core he has opted to dedicate his training time to Classical Pilates

Will, Men Do Pilates Too!

“My body has come alive! My ankle and knee pain is completely gone. I sweat so much in my workouts, and my poor brain can barely handle all this information. Don’t get me started on memorizing the intermediate mat and reformer orders. OMG so hard!!! Rae and Ray are relentlessly on me to “work to the goal Megan”, “No excuses Megan”. You will learn to hate Ray’s “okay one more time” infinite repetitions. I certian do! When I look back on my old body. When I thought there was nothing I could do about the pain, and I would just be limping my whole life to today. The Pilates School SF is compleyely worth it. Thank you TPS! Can’t wait for more hard workouts..”
