Our Story

East River Pilates was established in the Spring of 2014 by Australian transplant, dancer, and movement enthusiast, Kimmy Kellum. In East River Pilates’ humble beginnings, friends would meet twice weekly on the rooftop of Kimmy’s apartment, overlooking the East River. As her feel-good workouts grew in popularity, so did her desire to make Pilates more accessible, regardless of the weather forecast.

In January of 2015, East River Pilates officially opened its first basement studio at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge. Since then, East River Pilates has organically expanded to three beautiful boutique locations, offering over 200 specialty classes, workshops, and private sessions weekly. Today, East River Pilates is proud to provide a welcoming space for New Yorkers to share a sense of community, and connect with others who are passionate about healthy living.
