Elisa Bluming

Pilates Studio Owner


After realizing that she preferred building bodies to building tables, Elisa left a 10 year career in the furniture design industry to teach Pilates full-time and subsequently open her own studio.

Elisa has been practicing Pilates since 1996 and completed her teacher training under the direction of Peter Roel, Susan Moran-Perich, and Pheobe Higgins. She received her certification from the Physical Mind Institute in 1998. Her diverse training background has given her a keen understanding of both contemporary biomechanics as well as traditional Pilates choreography.

Her previous work experience includes: Senior Teacher at Power Pilates NYC, Associate director of Body Tonic, Inc., and Director of Pilates at Clay, LLC. Her workouts and client results have been featured on several occasions in Pilates Style magazine.

Elisa’s background also includes Gyrotonic, anatomy training with Irene Dowde, Prenatal and Postpartum fitness, African, Brazilian and Modern dance.

Bluming Studio has been strengthening Williamsburg’s core since 2001. The focus of the studio has always been on creative and integrated study. While they offer group classes, they are small and intimate, providing every student with plenty of individual attention.

Bluming Studio offers private and duet Pilates sessions, private Gyrotonic® sessions, small group Gyrokinesis®, Pilates spring classes, Migun massage, Prenatal and postpartum classes and sessions. They pride ourselves on the personalized teaching provided and make sure that the primary mission is to help build bodies that are ready for all of life’s activities and challenges!

Bluming Studio is also currently setting up shop in Rockaway Beach so Bluming Studio is becoming bicoastal! and, in Elisa’s words, “…well, by that we mean east coast and east river.”
