I really love this studio. It is great for dancers. I really enjoy taking privates with Jenny. Lani's Tower class is the best. I highly recommend this studio for Pilates and GYROTONIC. I would love to do my teacher training here.

They really know what they are doing. I was injured and they helped me regain my full function and worked with me so I wouldn't become a couch potato. I recommend.

The equipment is top notch and the instructors are a lot of fun & inspirational. I take the group classes. I have not lost any weight. BUT-I have lost 2 inches around my waist. My clothes fit me differently. Also, my lower back used to ache constantly. It is almost 100% better.

I just renewed my 10 Pilates Private session pack. I cannot believe it's been over 6-months since the first time I tried Pilates at Mind 2 Body. But ??I have accomplished a lot this past two months. Today I was introduced to the Guillotine Tower. Wow what a workout. I often wondered what it could do. I was able to stretch my back like never before. I feel so open and free.
??I like the studio, but it's the instructors that keeps me coming back for more. Kathleen is great for any levels whether you're a beginner or been practicing for years -- I always look forward to her class at 10 on Saturday mornings. Lani is an excellent teacher, her goal is to make her students more advanced -- I really like her Mat Classes, especially Thursday evening.
?I am so happy that I finally have an addiction that is good for me! NO intervention needed and NO treatments required because there is no way I'm going to quit this habit of doing Pilates! If I can go to a Pilates class everyday, I would...??Pilates on Sunday, ?Pilates on Monday, ?Pilates on Tuesday, ?Pilates on Thursday? and Pilates on Saturday?. Wednesday off, it's date night with my wife and Friday is movie night.
?? The studio is awesome! I cannot ask for a better place. Open. Huge. Good ventilation. Relaxing. Clean. Being here makes me so happy, because I am fitter, stronger, leaner and most importantly I avoided back surgery.

Mind 2 Body is a beautiful cut above the rest Pilates studio. The owner Lani, a pure delight, excellent teacher, professional, and so personable!
Her other teachers Stacey and Kathleen are amazing! The apparatus is new , beautiful the best in town!

I travel to L.A. for business a least a dozen times a year. For the past six months, since discovering Mind 2 Body, I have been looking more and more forward to these business trips. The Pilates group classes and personal instruction that I have recieved at this studio is top notch to be sure. This studio is immaculate. Its has a refreshing natural light comming through the glass front at all times of day. The staff is friendly and capable. In short, a visit to this studio is both a physically exhilarating and spiritually soothing expirience. I leave there feeling like a new man every time!

I have had a passing interest in Pilates for the past five years or so, beginning when I started college. After taking a few mat classes, I acknowledged pilates as a good ab work out and nothing more. A friend recommended to me this studio and more pointedly to Lani Pelino as an instructor. While at first I was a little hesitant to go to a private, one on one session, I really wanted to see the results in myself that I noticed my friend had achieved. Not only did I find Lani to be extremely warm and accommidating, the skill she showed, not only in her instruction, but in her assessment of my level of fitness was impressive and reassuring. I loved the studio! It was bright, clean and had an open feeling that made me feel energetic and relaxed at the same time. Lani smoothly put me through the best work out on all new, state of the art equipment that I have ever had in my life. I am not a novice at the gym and have had personal trainers in the past. Never has my body felt so genuinely warmed, stretched, and energized. I have been hooked ever since, and now view Lani not only as an instructor, but part of my support system, and an expert in the health field I know I can depend on for open and honest advice. I have never been in better shape, and have achieved a level of fitness and endurance I never expected!

This is by far the most beautiful pilates & GYROTONIC? studio in Los Angeles. This studio is beyond amazing with its concrete floors and natural lighting. The studio has a men's and women's bathroom as well as a dressing room with lockers to store your belongings. It also has ample parking in the rear of the building.

All of the equipment is brand new and like no other pilates equipment I have ever been on before. It has all the bells and whistles!

My favorite-the teachers! I have taken classes with Lani, Ashley, Stacey & Kathleen. They are all so unique and give variety to each & every work out. They really care and it is obvious that they love teaching.

I can't imagine going anywhere else. I have finally found my pilates home....

?AWEFUL? AT BEST!!!
WARNING: DON?T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!! RUN FAST!!!
If you are looking to be mistreated; mislead; made to feel inferior; and taken advantage of? CONGRATULATIONS? you?ve come to the right place.
Mind 2 Body Studio is the worst of the worst in terms of quality Pilates studios.
The owner and sole instructor, Lani, is arrogant, abrasive, cold, unprofessional, self-righteous, extremely ridged and dishonest. Customers and employees (people answering the phone) appear to be afraid of her as treats them like discarded leftovers. Watch out for her false promises and empty sales pitches.
The Studio, although conveniently located, is dark, depressing, vacant, dirty and moldy smelling. The majority of the equipment is out-dated and obsolete. It appears that the owner built her studio as some sort of shine to her greatness!
For the record, I have studied Pilates consistently for more than 20 years. My practice started in New York City with some very well known and renown Pilates instructors. I have taken classes all over the world and never have experienced such appalling behavior.
All in all, a truly terrible experience.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED: STAY AWAY!
