Founded in 2006, the Pilates Center of Pittsburgh located in Mt. Lebanon or the South Hills area of the city, offers a combination of Exercise Methods and Bodywork. We partner with passionate teachers and bodyworkers. We have unique specialty programs in the areas of women’s health and athletic training.


We offer a classical Pilates program that is rooted in the traditional work of Joseph H. Pilates and embraces the ingenuity of contemporary thinking. We have developed unique courses in the areas of women’s health, prenatal Pilates and orthopedic health and offer clients an unparalleled experience.  Visit the session types & pricing page to learn more about class types and packages. Our classic Pilates style within the studio is systematic, integrative, friendly and creative.


We offer bodywork sessions in various modalities. Our talented bodywork team brings over 30 years of experience in their field to our studio community. Please read our team bios to learn more about focuses of study and areas of expertise. Bodywork sessions are ideal for clients with an acute injury to assist soft tissues in healing and creating stability across the structures of the body. Bodywork sessions can be extremely effective in assisting clients post surgery, aiding the body in re-establishing healthy movement patterns; or for clients getting to the root of a nagging physical complaint or issue.


The GYROKINESIS® Method is a complementary system to the Pilates Method. GYROKINESIS® is the non-apparatus work within the GYROTONIC® system.
Whether you are an athlete or someone who doesn’t exercise often but simply wants to move better, you can find success with the GYROKINESIS®  Method, which works to create balance in the body through increased strength and flexibility, without compression or strain. Read more about it here.


We offer multiple options to support your commitment to regular practice.


The Introductory Packages are for new clients only. If you are new to Pilates or GYROKINESIS® they are mandatory beginner work. If you are familiar with the basic tenets of these practices, you may wish to take an Intro Sampler Pack or sign up directly for an Open Level Class.

Introductory Privates

“I was new to Pilates when I timidly started with a mat class at the Pilates Center of Pittsburgh more out of curiosity to discover what Pilates was about. That was about 4 years ago and I have not missed a week since I began training with Lesley. Since I was an avid bicyclist, walker, yogi, and part time weight lifter, it took me quite some time to figure Pilates out. Lesley understood it would take some time for me to catch on and become a fan. Her patience and support made it possible. I appreciate all of the teachers at the studio. I am no longer in constant pain from my lower back, I hold myself different, and I am stronger and more flexible. Thank you Pilates Center of Pittsburgh.”

– BJ Hirschfield Louik | Testimonial

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly. To keep the channel open.”
