About The Pilates Center

Ballet Austin's professional staff of certified Pilates instructors are here to help you get the most out of your Pilates experience.

Our newly expanded Pilates Center now encompasses 1,500 sq. ft. and is equipped with 12 state-of-the-art Balanced Body reformers to offer private, duet and group appointments seven days a week. The Pilates Center offers these amenities: 

  • Two studios–one for group sessions and one for private lessons, duet sessions and specialty classes;
  • Eight GlideBoards for cardio core workouts;
  • New state-of-the-art, non-slip Flotex® flooring;
  • Secure, individual lockers for clients’ personal belongings; and
  • An elegant, new interior design to help clients relax, focus and get the most both mentally and physically from each Pilates workout.

A series of at least 3 private appointments is recommended before booking group or duet appointments. Our certified instructors will focus on each individual clients' needs developing individualized workout programs that are safe and challenging for any age and conditioning level.
