About Us

We’re here to help you grow!

Hey everybody!  We’re Emily and Kris, co-founders of Tribe Pilates.  We want to first say thanks for stopping by and checking us out today!

When we started Tribe Pilates in 2018 we had one goal in mind - to help our community achieve their fitness goals!  Our mission was to create challenging reformer based Pilates classes to not only develop strong, flexible and balanced bodies, but to also encourage and motivate through a sense of community.  Your Tribe!

A little about us -

Emily is a long time Pilates enthusiast and practitioner that turned her passion into a career as an instructor.  After certification she has been instructing pilates at various studios in the Santa Monica area for the past 7 years, which include the years she met and introduced her co-founder Kris to the practice.  Emily has always had a dream of opening her own studio that instilled the core teaching values of Pilates combined with continued personal growth through a fitness community. Kris with over 15 years of business marketing experience took his new found love of Pilates to partner with Emily to help make Tribe Pilates a reality.
