Benefits of Pilates

The transformative benefits of Pilates – a workout for everybody. Unlike weightlifting, Pilates is gentle yet effective, offering bone-strengthening, muscle-toning results. Elevate your fitness and mental well-being as you stand taller, move with grace, and feel energized. Suitable for all, from uber-athletes to seniors, Pilates caters to diverse needs, delivering holistic benefits for a healthier you.


At Lifestyle Pilates Petaluma, we dream of building a strong community of positive men and women who are committed to staying healthy and happy. We make this vision come to life by offering a variety of Pilates classes at different levels. People of all ages and health statuses are welcome to join our sessions!


Wear comfortable workout clothes that you feel okay sweating in. You’ll be laying down some of the time with your hands or legs in the air, so make sure your clothes move with you. We require Pilates grip socks. You can bring your own or purchase some in our fitness boutique. Bring a water bottle—or we have water for you.

You will be building and toning your muscles, and that muscle will continue to burn calories even after you have left class. Many of our classes include some cardio to help get your heart rate up and whittle away pounds. With proper diet and a good mix of classes, you can definitely lose weight.

Absolutely! It was started by a fitness buff, Joseph Pilates, and it remains a great workout for men. 

All of our instructors are certified through an accredited certified program

Our cancellation policy is 24 hours in advance for reformer classes and privates. If you don’t show up or cancel with adequate notice, you will be billed for the class. We know schedules can get crazy—try to remember to cancel the day ahead so you aren’t billed.

Definitely hop on the wait list for a class—we’ll notify you by email if a space opens up, and you can decide then if you want to join us. If the wait list is full and you really want in the class, stop by and we’ll put you in if there is a last-minute no show.

Please visit our schedule page, check out the Mindbody mobile app or you can call the studio and we can help you get scheduled. We are here to make it easy for you. 

We offer modifications to many exercises and encourage you to move at your own pace.
