About Us

We are located near the Balboa Peninsula and 55 freeway in Lido Marina Village. Our bright, spacious studio is newly remodeled and features top-of-the-line Gratz Pilates equipment. Our staff is fully trained and certified in Classical Pilates and owner Djuna Watt Bennett has been a physical therapist for 30 years. As such, she is uniquely prepared to address a variety of injuries and conditions through the use of Pilates rehabilitation. We accept most insurances with a written prescription from a doctor.

For those who are curious and have never tried Pilates, we offer a four pack of private introductory lessons at a greatly reduced rate. In addition to private, semi-private, and group Pilates, our class schedule includes yoga, Tai Chi, and meditation.


Pilates is an insightful and clever exercise method geared for total body conditioning, core strength, flexibility, agility, balance and alignment.  It trains the body’s muscles to work as an integrated system, producing powerful and healthy movement dynamics, an improved ability to focus and a beautiful body aesthetic.  In addition, Pilates is one of the most effective methods of exercise to decrease back and neck pain.

We are proud to stock our studio with Gratz Pilates equipment. These machines are based on the original designs and specifications of Joseph Pilates.
