Lynne DeMarco, Owner, received a BFA in Dance from California Institute of the Arts in 1988. It was while studying dance, that Lynne first encountered the work of Joseph H. Pilates. After graduating, she danced professionally with Loretta Livingston & Dancers until 1995. Upon leaving the company, Lynne returned to her Pilates training. She received her teacher certification from Long Beach Dance Conditioning, under the direction of master teacher and innovator Marie Jose’ Blom-Lawrence, in 1996. Lynne continues to further her education by taking workshops in the Pilates Method. Lynne also continued her dance career, working with Helios Dance Theatre, and Trip Dance Theatre. She went on to teach Pilates at Ron Fletcher Co., Total Body Studios and The No-Nonsense Workout, until opening Mind-Body Fitness Pilates Studio in 1998. She began with one Pilates Reformer working in the dining room of her home, and soon rented a commercial space in Silver Lake. She then needed more room to play, so she moved to her current location in Los Feliz in June, 2000. Lynne enjoys teaching Pilates and believes everyone can benefit from it.
