about us

Wellness through movement. Pure Pilates Pasadena is a boutique Pilates Studio offering Private Pilates Sessions, and small Pilates group apparatus classes.

We are located at The Langham Huntington Hotel Pasadena, bordering San Marino. 

We are thrilled to be a part of the Pasadena Pilates community and offer our personalized services. 

At Pure Pilates you will never perform a set routine. Jacqueline Potter will develop custom exercises and personalized sequences to accommodate and challenge each body: angles are adjusted, props are used, movements are dissected, modified, built upon, and perfected.

This detailed and individualized approach to Pilates with small group classes and private instruction ensures access to every muscle, resulting in a long, lean, healthy body. Rather than employing existing movement patterns that use already dominant muscle groups, Pure Pilates Pasadena adjusts imbalances and retrains the neuromuscular system, affecting body-changing results. Problem areas will improve. You will stand taller and look longer and leaner. Pain will decrease. You will move with grace and ease.

Pure Pilates Pasadena was designed from Jacqueline Potter’s 27 years of Pilates, Dance, Yoga and fitness experience,

and perfected over 20 years of working on bodies. 

Jacqueline Potter is in touch with the latest physiological research, eschewing fast- changing fitness fads and trends, giving each and every one the knowledge to affect body transforming results. Whether your goal is to lose weight, reshape your body, or alleviate pain, Jacqueline Potter will evolve your Pilates program as you progress to achieve even greater heights of fitness and well-being.

Jacqueline Potter’s expertise spans many specialties, furthering her ability to care for a wide range of clients, whether you’re interested in a more classical approach to Pilates, or more contemporary Pilates conditioning. Pure Pilates Pasadena will create an effective, specialized Private Pilates program in the following areas: prenatal, postnatal, scoliosis, osteoporosis, post-surgical, post-injury, injury prevention, and sports specific conditioning.

Pure Pilates Pasadena philosophy encompasses the use of complementary modalities that would be available through The Langham Huntington Hotel Pasadena at the Chuan Spa. Continuous dialog between Pure Pilates and in-house bodywork professionals ensures your goals are met in the most effective and efficient manner. Combine this individualized attention with the most knowledgeable and experienced practitioner and you have found the best Pilates in Pasadena,  San Marino and Los Angeles area: at Pure Pilates Pasadena.
