Nancy Wallace Pilates Bellevue, Washington opened its doors in June 2008. We were the first fully loaded Gratz Pilates Studio specializing in the Authentic Method of Pilates in Bellevue, WA. All our Pilates instructors come with the highest qualifications to industry standard; training with second and third generation Pilates teacher trainers who continue to share the original teachings of Joseph Pilates.
Nancy Wallace Pilates teaches the authentic method of Pilates, using top-of-the-line Gratz apparatus built from the original design of Joseph Pilates’ own equipment. Combining the authentic equipment and techniques that Joseph Pilates created, Pilates brings balance and a better quality of life to all body types, physical conditions, and ages.
At Nancy Wallace Pilates of Bellevue we are an environment that values loyalty and caring. We are often told by clients they wish they had taken Pilates classes with us sooner. We have been instrumental in developing a community of Pilates Enthusiasts in the Bellevue area and we are grateful to continue growing the relationship with you!
The authentic method of Pilates creates a mind-body connection, resulting in an overall ultimate workout. There are no prerequisites when joining our studio, Pilates does not discriminate against injury, body type, age, gender, or any level of physical fitness. Each exercise is completed in a particular sequence, with a minimum number of repetitions and a high degree of precision and mental focus. In Pilates, all movements are initiated from the core, and the result is a toned body without the bulk developed by the conventional exercise methods.
What to Expect from Us: A Pilates Body! Typically, clients notice their shrinking waist and stronger core due to the great deal of abdominal control required. In every exercise there is a strengthening and lengthening component which increases the range of motion and strength of a muscle initiating from the joint. Eventually your body will move through the Pilates exercises taught at Nancy Wallace Pilates of Bellevue with control, precision, coordination, breathe, confidence, concentration, and balance.

- Preregistration and prepayment are required.

I have been taking Pilates for six years in Seattle. When my instructor quit having a baby, I decided to move to the Eastside closer to my home. The first place I tried was Nancy Wallace Pilates. It is great! The studio is comfortable, the equipment top-notch, and the instructors knowledgeable, focused, and interested in getting you where you want to be. These girls have really challenged me to “kick it up a notch” and the results in just a few weeks are outstanding. For those of you wanting a new Pilates challenge or just wanting to try it out for the first time, I recommend Nancy Wallace Pilates. At age 65, I can say without hesitation, Pilates has been the best exercise I have ever done!
I’m new to Pilates. I’ve done yoga on and off over the past few years. I decided to give Pilates a try after a number of people suggested it as a way to manage the back issues (herniated L5/S1) I’ve dealt with over the past 5 years. I found Nancy Wallace Pilates of Bellevue on Yelp and read the reviews. I visited the studio and liked the laid back atmosphere (i.e. there was no hard sell on signing up or buying a package); I also liked the staff’s obvious commitment and passion around Pilates. I decided to give it a try and have been doing Pilates at Nancy Wallace Pilates of Bellevue 2x/week for the past month. I absolutely love it! The brochure from the studio says that within 10 sessions: feel the difference, better posture, increased strength, feel more flexible, development a true understanding of the mind-body connection. I’ve experienced all of that. I attribute this partly to Pilates and but mostly to the great instruction that I’m receiving at Nancy Wallace Pilates of Bellevue. Any Pilates instructor can take you through a Pilates routine/workout – however, at Nancy Wallace Pilates of Bellevue I found that they really work to customize the workout around me and my needs. In addition, they’ve worked with me on my back issues to ensure that I don’t re-injure my back. I’ve worked with Kim, Raquel and Nancy – they’ve all been amazing! In addition to the amazing staff, the studio is conveniently located and has lots of parking. I’m a huge fan of Nancy Wallace Pilates.
I cannot express how happy I have been with my experience at Nancy Wallace Pilates. I started coming to Nancy Wallace Pilates in the winter of 2009 in preparation for a climb of Mt. Rainier. I had been having back issues and felt that the core strengthening exercises that Pilates demands would help me. I was lucky to connect with the owner, Nancy Wallace, who not only helped me overcome my back issues, but introduced me to a whole new form of exercise and conditioning. Having been involved in competitive athletics my entire life, my workouts have always been a way to not only stay in condition but also to push myself and compete with myself. Pilates, especially the way it is practiced at Nancy Wallace Pilates, is the perfect discipline for any athlete who wants to take their strength, conditioning, and flexibility to the next level.
I love this place. Like, seriously love it. As a former competitive athlete, I’m always looking for a challenging workout that isn’t going to bore me. After being to other Pilates studios, I really wasn’t interested… until my chiropractor told me it would help with my chronic back problems, and then pointed me to this place. These ladies are amazing. I do a private and a semi-private lesson each week and they really listen to how I’m feeling and what I want to achieve that day. Feeling tired and tight? No problem. Want something to make me really sweat and totally re-shape my backside? No problem. Back flaring up and causing me pain? No problem. Each instructor is super knowledgeable and will push you to your limits. I work out with Misty, but I’ve worked with at least 5 different instructors in the 2 years I have been going there; all top notch. And the reviewers are right about Nancy…you’ll get the workout of your life. Try a Kangoo class with her if you’re looking for something totally new and out of the box. You won’t be sorry!
Think you can just watch a workout video or go to a mat class to experience Pilates? One private or semi-private session at Nancy Wallace Pilates will prove just how wrong you are – and the results will, too. I’m constantly being adjusted or reminded to shift or squeeze or scoop, and each tiny adjustment helps me feel the exercise that much more. One last note, the fabulous instructors at Nancy Wallace Pilates can help ease back or neck pain, not just help you get a lean sexy body. My husband suffers from back pain (bad posture coupled with sitting at a desk all day) and he started coming to Pilates to help relieve some of the pain. He now goes once a week and when he skipped a couple weeks his back pain came back noticeably.
The classes that I participated in at Nancy Wallace Pilates has increased my flexibility and taken my performance to another level.
I like the approach at Nancy Wallace Pilates – and I’m totally hooked. Great instructors focused on the classic disciplines and excellent form. They work you but you definitely get out what you put in. Nancy Wallace Pilates is now an integral part of my fitness program – the perfect complement to weight training and running/cardio. At 48, I’m in the best shape of my life – more muscle, 20 pounds lighter, faster, leaner, more flexible, better posture, more energy and no back pain. Feelin’ great – thanks, Nancy and Nancy Wallace Pilates. You all are the best.
I moved to Bellevue in February and was searching for a Pilates studio that has all the major equipment. This was a struggle. I was very happy to have found Nancy Wallace Pilates. My experience has been excellent. I also have been able to work out with many of the instructors. They have all had my well being in mind as we work through the program. Knowing that I cannot do (or do not like!) certain “poses” (like the Tree on the reformer!), they offer alternatives that provide the same stretch/workout but done in different ways.
I have been a walking and running coach for over 10 years and am always interested in trying new exercise programs that may enhance my running and my clients running. I am so glad Nancy Wallace Pilates opened right across from my store the Footzone! Nancy is inspirational both in her knowledge of Pilates and how Pilates has shaped her body. My core strength has improved immensely plus I love the camaraderie of the group classes. The hour flies by and I leave feeling so great!! Try it….you’ll be hooked!
I was impressed with these instructors as I had tendinitis knees and a tear in my shoulder. I wasn’t sure I was a candidate for this regime. They assured me that they could work around my issues and in 6 months the problems ceased I was skiing and playing golf better than ever. Now they have an incredible “stretch to win ” program that’s as good as a message.
