Our Studio

Thank you for visiting us at Core Pilates, Yoga and Barre. As Hilton Head’s premier fitness studio, we welcome students of all levels with open arms. At Core, we value quality over quantity, gracefully crafted movements, and a healthy balance between strength and flexibility. 

Core’s certified trainers offer tailor-made workouts for lengthening, strengthening and stretching your body with controlled and deliberate movements. Core’s energizing and inviting atmosphere provides the ultimate Mind-Body-Fitness experience.  We invite you to join our Core family for an equipment class, mat class or one-on-one instruction with any of our dedicated instructors!

My first stop every year when we return to Hilton Head (from Canada) is the Core Pilates studio. I love the friendly welcome from all of the staff and look forward to the excellent instruction, fun atmosphere and great vibe in the studio. I have enjoyed Pilates for over 15 years and it is wonderful to have found this place to continue my classes away from home.
