About Touchstone Pilates

Live with zest & ease!

"The goal of Pilates, originally called Contrology, …is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind and the ability to perform life’s daily activities with zest and ease."

-Joseph Pilates

Touchstone Pilates Studio

Touchstone Pilates is a fully equipped, state of the art Pilates Studio offering private, semi-private and small group sessions. We offer the highest quality Pilates instruction available based upon the system of exercises and philosophies originally developed by Joseph Pilates. Touchstone is the only studio in Pittsburgh offering Pilates method as handed down by Joseph Pilates directly to his world renown protege’ Romana Kryzanowska.

At Touchstone you will receive individual attention by a Romana’s Pilates® trained and certified instructor who understands how to tailor a workout specific to your body’s needs and capabilities in an atmosphere defined by energy and professionalism. When you are working with a Romana’s Pilates® certified instructor, you can be confident that you are getting quality and experience, not an instructor who achieved certification over the weekend or using a fast track approach. Touchstone’s Owner/ Senior Instructor/Romana's Pilates Teacher of Teachers, Lisa Pellow and Instructor Christy Martin are the only currently accredited Romana’s Pilates® Certified Instructors in Pittsburgh.

Touchstone features Gratz Pilates equipment, the finest and only Pilates apparatus available with designs based upon the original specifications of Joseph Pilates.
