Studio History

Santé Pilates Studio, named after the French word for "health", opened in Summerland in 2004 and moved to Carpinteria in 2006. The bright, spacious, fully equipped studio is conveniently located on Carpinteria Avenue across from the Alcazar Theater. We offer private and small group Reformer Pilates classes daily, including evening and lunchtime classes.  Our certified instructors are passionate about Pilates and love to help clients feel better and do more with their bodies. 

Why Pilates?

Pilates was developed a century ago by a man named Joseph Pilates.  This method of mind-body exercise involves strengthening and stretching muscles of the whole body creating profound results including improved muscle tone without adding bulk, strong abdominal and back muscles, improved posture, flexibility, body awareness, balance, coordination, range of motion, and muscle symmetry.  By strengthening the muscles of your inner core, Pilates can benefit any body.  It can improve your sport or athletic performance, help with rehabilitation after injuries, help prevent future injuries and help decrease back, neck or joint pain.

Pilates is also an education in body awareness that goes beyond a 55 minute Pilates class and moves into your daily life.  When you're sitting in front of a computer, brushing your teeth, or in the case of one of my clients who was standing at the alter - the words you hear in class come home and you stand up taller, pull your shoulders down, your navel in and breathe!​
