Reach your fitness goals without over working your body and risking injury.

Strengthen, tone, improve flexibility and well-being in a workout that feels good for the body and soul.

‘[Joseph] Pilates passionately believed that if his methods were universally adopted and taught in America’s educational institutions, every facet of life – from the individual to the societal – would be improved’ Pilates Method Alliance


Pilates believed that applying his methods and techniques would lead to a mentally and physically healthier society overall. We agree, and we want to carry on his mission by providing access to the life-changing benefits of his method. Mat Pilates classes, when done correctly, can be more challenging and effective than any private lesson on the apparatus, and can improve every aspect of one’s life. But becoming a mat Pilates instructor is expensive. Putting together your mat Pilates classes without guidance is overwhelming. That is why we are doing the work for you. 

PILATES FLOW is not only a group fitness class but also suitable for one-on-one private or small group training.

We have over 40 years of combined education and experience, we know what challenges instructors face, and we have the solution! This program will not only comprehensively educate you in the Pilates technique and mat exercises; it designs your classes for you! We’ve done the hard work to create unique Class Flows that maximize time, and give your clients the experience and results that truly change their lives. The combination of exercises and joint mobility stretches mean that this class is truly for everyone - it is safe for all ages, stages of life and levels of ability. We know. We’ve been doing this for decades.

We are committed to making Pilates affordable for everyone, see below for pricing and promotions. Learn more >>>















All Level Mat Pilates Comprehensive Workshop Details

We are dedicated to making PILATES certifications more affordable and time efficient for all. The PILATES FLOW by PILOXING Mat Pilates certification is a one day in-person education workshop with a self-study component.

"I have had the privilege of having Viveca as my Pilates trainer for over 12 years. Since I moved away from LA about 2.5 years ago, we’ve been training together over zoom and I am so thankful for that. Viveca has an incredible knowledge and intuition about what your body needs, and working with her doesn’t only make you physically strong but also keeps you in a positive mindset. I am 44 and have never felt stronger or happier in my body. Viveca challenges me and always keeps me motivated. She’s the best!" ~ Mini Anden (Supermodel)

From my mid 30’s, through my 40’s and now into my 50’s Viveca has helped me build strength, flexibility, and grace. The result has been not only physical transformation but also developing a new level of confidence from the inside out. And even after 20 years, Viveca continually challenges me, helps me grow and pushes me in ways that make me stronger than ever." ~ Meilan Stark
