Pivotal Pilates


At Pivotal Pilates, we combine the simplicity, power and integrity of classical Pilates, and the adding programing and athletic condition of more progressive methods. We specialize in rehabilitation techniques and athletic conditioning for beginners through advanced levels. Pivotal Pilates, is run by founding director Susan Markowitz. Nestled in the corner of the Matawan Mall just off Route 34 in Matawan, Pivotal is a state-of-the-art studio offering post-rehabilitation, Pilates, Somatic Movement Therapy, and Pivotal Barre classes for people of all ages.

We offer private, duet, trio or group equipment classes for those people who simply can't afford privates or who just want to mix it up a bit. Whether you are a seasoned athlete or a beginner we can compose a program to move you closer to your exercise goals.

  • Here at Pivotal are unlimited monthly packages of Equipment based Pilates classes as well as Pivotal Barre and Mat classes! If you've never taken Pilates on the equipment (Reformer, Chair, Ladder barrels and Cadillac) you've never really had a true Pilates experience. We are determined to make Pilates affordable for everyone by creating small group equipment classes where specialized instructors cue you through an hour of toning, stretching, flexibility and endurance exercises on the equipment! We are still offering our 10 & 20 pack sessions for those of you who prefer to pay as you go. Please call for information and details. We'd love to find a class that meets your needs!
“In 10 sessions, you will feel the difference. In 20, you will see the difference. And in 30, you’ll be on your way to having a whole new body.” – Joseph Pilates
