Gotham Pilates was founded in August 2005 by native New Yorker, Laura Sepulveda. Our experienced and certified instructors honor the work of Joseph Pilates through individual and group sessions. A range of styles, including Pilates, dance, fitness, and yoga, are customized to achieve a balanced “amalgam of form and function.” Its fully equipped boutique studio in Downtown La Jolla, just steps to the beach, offers clients an inspiring and non-competitive environment to improve strength, mobility, and vitality—for today and the future.
At Gotham Pilates we encourage our clients to honor their body and to use what’s available at each moment! We acknowledge that EVERYBODY’S BODY is different EVERY DAY. When we honor that we are mindful and move to our best potential.
