About Our Santa Cruz Pilates Studio



The Agile Monkey Pilates Studio is a family business, located in downtown Santa Cruz on beautiful Walnut Ave. We have consistently been voted the Best Pilates Studio in Santa Cruz, and we love what we do. We offer private instruction to accommodate all needs and budgets, a dynamic schedule of group Pilates classes, and comprehensive Pilates instructor education programs.


The studio is both serene and revitalizing, reflecting the beautiful area in which we live. With bamboo and hardwood floors, lots of natural light, the full range of Balanced Body Pilates equipment, and quality instructors, it is truly a wonderful place to work out and focus on health.


Agile Monkey was founded by Lisa Graham with the goal of creating a studio that brought together talented instructors with the skill to identify the positive impact that Pilates can have on each and every one of us. She believes in sharing information, building community and giving people the wisdom to understand what's going on in their body, and how to use that to their advantage. 

Sessions are always focused on the individual needs of the client. Workouts can be fast paced and vigorous or slow and gentle, and will teach each client to work more efficiently in their own body, regardless of their current fitness level. The instructors at Agile Monkey will help their clients understand their postural tendencies, correct their imbalances, significantly improve their physical condition and reduce their likelihood of future injury. We will teach you how to find your inner monkey, and feel better than you have in years.
