About Us

In Latin, Tabula Rasa means "blank slate". This unique, backyard, yurt Pilates studio is your chance to start anew! The studio is equipped with classical Pilates apparatus and offers privates, duets, trios and classes up to 6 individuals. Whether you are looking to slowly return to fitness or want to tighten and tone your body to the next level, Pilates is a wonderful "feel good" fitness option! Please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a tour of the studio and free 30-minute assessment. We’d love to know what your health and fitness goals are and help you achieve them!  

Hi, I’m Vanessa, the owner and instructor for Tabula Rasa Pilates. As a former classical dancer, Pilates was a natural fit as my body matured. I obtained my first Pilates Mat Certification in 2002, and pursued continued certifications to become proficient on the Pilates Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Spine Corrector apparatus. I taught privates and group classes for 15 years on the East and West Coast, then took a brief hiatus to pursue my professional career as a counselor, educator, and college administrator, pursue my PhD and have a baby. 

My spouse and I are both local to the CA Central Coast, moved away for our professional careers, and were able to return home in 2020 after the birth of our daughter to be closer to family. We created a yurt in our backyard in 2021 - a dream we’ve always had, and are taking the first steps back toward health and fitness by sharing our Pilates studio with our community. We look forward to the chance to meet you soon!

~ Vanessa, Dustin, and Camilla
