About Us


Located in Berkley, Michigan, Reforming Foundations is a modern Pilates studio that teaches movement strategies to help every body feel and move its best. We specialize in Pilates, Physical Therapy and Wellness Programs. Our focus is injury rehabilitation, professional athletic training, those undergoing pain or movement problems and all those looking to experience both fun and challenging Pilates PODS with a variety of wonderful people who have helped create an inclusive and supportive environment.


OUR Pilates PODS

Because our primary focus is giving our clients a safe workout focused on alignment and movement techniques, each class has a maximum capacity of 6 people. Keeping classes small allows our instructors to focus and care for each body participating in the class. We specialize in One-On-One and Semi-Private Sessions to provide individualized care and dedicated support.



We are a Pilates Studio designed for all stages of life! From professional athletes to grandparents and from postpartum mamas to professional dancers and every body in between, Reforming Foundations is a perfect fit for anyone looking to increase their strength, endurance, flexibility and mobility while improving their mind body connection.


We’re proud to support our community on their journey to strength, vitality and overall wellness through Pilates and our unique Wellness Programs.

For those who need specialized attention with injuries, chronic pain or weakness, our licensed Physical Therapists give one-on-one attention to improve movement quality and help prevent injury while improving fitness.

For those seeking recovery and rejuvenation, our deep relaxation infrared sauna heats the very core of your body for deep detoxification, skin purification, weight loss, release of harmful toxins and heavy metals, pain relief, improved circulation and more.

For those looking for sustainable lifestyle changes, our Health Coach will create a personalized program and provide a solid foundation to empower each individual to develop a long-lasting health journey.

Our Founder

Brooke fell in love with Pilates after her own personal health struggle. After repeated injuries from group fitness and athletic training, she discovered the Pilates method. She personally experienced how rehabilitative and effective this method of movement was and saw how it could help others. She introduced the method to her family and friends and watched how they also benefited from the movements.

Brooke felt compelled to create a community that supports safe and healthy movement, and in 2014, she opened Reforming Foundations. Continuing to share the joy of the Pilates experience, we are now in our second location as we continue to expand.
