Welcome To
The Balance Room

Focusing on strength, clarity & resilience through movement.

Pilates and TRX studio located in Philadelphia, PA

We believe that somatic instruction should focus on how you feel, rather than how you look.
Our values are firmly rooted in celebrating the rich diversity of our city, and we welcome all bodies, races, religions, gender identities and sexual orientations.

Still have questions?

Group Mat Classes

We keep our group classes small at The Balance Room to make sure everyone gets a safe & effective workout. That way, we can keep an eye on everyone practicing, but you can choose whether or not you would like hands-on assistance. Mat classes, and our Monday night Circuit class, are maxed out at 8 participants,  

Please check out our class schedule to view pricing and sign up.
*Kindly be prepared to show or email us your vaccination card if you would like to take an in-person class*

Private and Duet Sessions

Private and duet instruction are really our bread & butter. Private sessions are an incredible way to build strength in the most effective way possible, with one-on-one, targeted attention.

Whatever your goal is, whether it be building core strength or rehabbing from an injury, private or semi-private sessions on the equipment, mat and TRX are the way to go.

Small Group Reformer Classes

Our small group reformer classes are limited to 4 participants, so everyone receives support as they are guided through class!All classes, unless otherwise specified, are taught to an all-levels audience so the instructor will tailor each class to the participants in front of them! Small props &  jump board mat be used as well.

Please note, reformer classes are more expensive than a mat class for many reasons. Not only is it costly to acquire and maintain the equipment, but the amount of training and experience our instructors have invested in is reflected in their pay. Additionally, this allows us to keep the class size small, so everyone can get a safe and challenging workout!

Meet Mari Rubin

This section will be short & sweet, because this whole operation is not about me, it's about you and all of the wonderful people who have made The Balance Room a reality. But, I'm sure you're wondering who I am, where I come from, and why I love what I do.

I'm a Philly transplant, originally from New England. Growing up, I was never particularly athletic and I was never a dancer....trust me, you don't want to see me dance! I just loved to move, and exercise became an important part of my life as a teenager because I loved how empowering it was; movement reminded me that I had agency over my body which made me feel strong and powerful.  Discovering pilates amplified these feelings a few years later, and a good friend encouraged me to go through a teacher training.

I originally became certified in Mat I & II through Balanced Body, and re-took my mat certification along with a  comprehensive 450-hour equipment training through Drexel Pilates under Jennifer Morley. I am a fully certified TRX, trainer, and am a Level I  Movement for Trauma facilitator through Jane Clapp.

Ultimately, I’ve found throughout the years that there's no such thing as balance, only balancing. My hope is that through movement, I help you find the tools necessary to live the most genuine, authentic & vibrant life possible.
