At FORM Pilates we are in the business of Pilates!
The first ever Pilates Cooperative, we are THE shared workspace for Pilates instructors. FORM is not only a haven for clients to learn Pilates in, but also for instructors to break from their Pilates Prisons. At FORM we focus on learning Pilates as it was intended- one-on-one.While we know that Pilates is both an investment in time and money, we seek to help you get the most out of your sessions.
Join team FORM to celebrate all things Pilates 5/5/18!
The team of killer Pilates instructors that call FORM their home bring you a collaborative style Pilates experience. Strengthen, stretch, and find joy in your body in this 60 min mat and equipment based class tag-team taught by two teachers.

about the teachers:
Lindsay Lopez, teaches Pilates in its purest form, improving her clients’ bodies and lives through the Classical New York method. Although Lindsay holds fast to the historical method of Pilates, her approach is modern, accessible and friendly. Lindsay got her start as a professional dancer and actress, working in feature films, commercials, and Broadway. She now owns and operates FORM Pilates Union Square in the heart of NYC. Inspired by helping instructors make what they deserve and live a life they love, Lindsay structured FORM to focus on trainers rather than the clientele. The result was a workspace for teachers who love to teach and clients who love to learn. Her wish is to provide her peers with the business training they so desperately need. As a positive coach and gutsy business mentor, Lindsay Lopez is changing the Pilates industry for the better.
Yunny (you-knee) Bisserette is a certified Pilates instructor who has been teaching for 3 years and counting. Her goal in this is to make sure that every client she works with does not shy away or doubt themselves and walks out of their sessions with a better understanding of their body. Yunny stresses the importance of form and its actual affiliation to our every day lives. She’s worked with many different bodies from “perfectly healthy” to those who have limitations due to injury, age, or lifestyle. Having a connection to her clients is most important to her. She lives to laugh and communicate with my clients to not only have a better understanding of their body, but also who they are as a person.
Jamie Graham is a classical Pilates instructor and professional dancer based in New York City. She aims to help her clients connect with their bodies to discover greater postural support, efficiency of movement, and flexibility through the precision and flow of the classical method. Jamie completed her teaching certification through Romanaʼs Pilates at True Pilates New York in 2007. She has taught at True Pilates East and Equinox Fitness, where she also taught group fitness and managed a studio from 2007-2012. She now teaches independently in the city, but is based out of Form Pilates in Union Square. Jamie also teaches Variable Pop Fitness through Dances for A Variable Population, a dance fitness class geared for adults.
Ashley came to Pilates as an actress seeking improved alignment and relief from severe lower back pain/SI joint issues. Her experience with pain and Pilates directly infuses her sessions with empathy and optimism- she knows how frustrating and challenging it can be! She likes to lead a strong and athletic session, with attention to form and specific goals/injuries. Ashley loves working with all sorts of clients: athletes, pre/post natal moms, hyper mobile yogis, desk-bound New Yorkers struggling with back pain and tension headaches, etc. Ashley believes that Pilates is for everyone, truly.
