Traverse City Pilates

Welcome to Pure PILATES

Pure Pilates is the premiere Traverse City pilates studio. Our three private studios and group studio are all equipped with high-end Stott-manufactured equipment including the cadillac, reformer, stability chair, ladder barrel and small apparatus.  We employ the practice of Pilates as  an effective means of improving our clients health and overall quality of life.

Our Traverse City pilates studio is located in The Village at the Commons, in the water tower district. We occupy the building closest to the trailhead next to S2S and Earthen Ales.  Our parking is simple and easy — anywhere in the lot by the trailhead or under water tower.  Click here for a map of our location.

New to our studio but have done pilates in the past? We require one 50 minute private session so we can determine together the best level class to meet your goals and keep you safe.

New to pilates?  We recommend the Getting Started Package consisting of four 45-minute sessions to teach you the basics of pilates, modifications you may need to keep you safe, and how to use the reformer. 


Our studio is an empowering environment. With our guidance, you’ll aspire to improve your body’s abilities, allowing for the lifestyle you desire outside of the studio.


Regardless of age or fitness level, you will build strength in the core and throughout the total body through controlled yet fluid movements on the mat and our Pilates equipment.


With practice, your body will evolve to become more aligned, lengthened and toned. You will find improvement in your flexibility, posture, athletic performance and energy.
