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 and classes up to 5 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 private session. 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 became Pilates Mat certified in 2002 and taught privates and group classes for 15 years on the East and West Coast. I took a brief hiatus to pursue my professional career as a counselor/educator/administrator for underrepresented youth, pursue my PhD and have a baby. I’m now completing my Comprehensive Pilates certification. 

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

~ Vanessa, Dustin, and baby CJ
