Welcome to Ab-Solutely Pilates

I’ve been teaching here in the Huntington Beach area since 2007. My lovely home studio is both cozy and fully equipped. I specialize in seeing privates or semi-privates (two people at the same time) which allows clients to not only learn the method correctly but to also see results much faster. Even people who feel they can’t afford regular private Pilates sessions and prefer large group classes can pop in for the occasional session to enhance their group performance.

Unlike so many studios, I see everyone. The first-time mover to the professional athlete and everyone in between. I have worked with the elderly, the injured, professional dancers, and fitness buffs. Every single one of my clients has benefited from seeing me. 

Sessions are available via appointment only. Sign up now and not only see the difference, feel the difference.

Devra has helped me immensely with my low back pain. I move much better now.


I had no experience in Pilates and an injured shoulder and my doctor recommended Pilates.  Devra was fantastic!  She was patient, persistent and a great teacher.  Very positive and gave me stretches to do between sessions.

Should You Choose Private Pilates Sessions over Group?

There was a time not so long ago when it was necessary to take a few if not a dozen or more private Pilates sessions with an experienced instructor in order to move on to small group classes. With the trend swinging towards larger and larger group classes, this has become less and less of a requirement for newer or inured students. This can be a problem for those who want to really experience the beauty of Pilates and to get something worthwhile out of their sessions.

There are many benefits to a commitment to private Pilates and there are even more benefits to working with an experienced and well-trained instructor. Not all instructors are created equal nor do they have the same amount of education and training. The following list the true benefits of working one on one with a talented and well-trained instructor:

  1. A private Pilates session will be geared towards you and your level of ability.
  2. Health and physical issues are addressed as the class is just you and there is no need to keep up with someone who does not have the same issues.
  3. The teacher can focus exclusively on you finding those areas that may need work and those that don’t need as much.
  4. Since the class is geared towards you and no one else, you get a better work-out and accomplish your goals that much faster.
  5. An experienced instructor can help you progress to higher levels without hurting you.
  6. A private session is going to be more intense so if money or time are issues, you don’t need to go every day or even every other day. Less can be more.
  7. On those days where something isn’t right or you have newer health issues, they will be addressed in a private session.
