WHAT IF I HAVE AN INJURY OR HEALTH ISSUE?2020-07-26T07:46:04-10:00

Pilates was actually first developed as a rehabilitation and physical therapy tool. It is ideal for injury recovery in that you will strengthen muscles while protecting your body and relearning proper movement patterns. If you feel limited in your injury, we recommend starting with the Beginner’s Evaluation. Some private Pilates sessions will help focus on your specific needs and can prepare you to join classes. If feel ready to try a class, you may want to start with the Pilates Equipment Basics or the Therapeutic Pilate’s classes.

Contact us if you aren’t sure where to start! You may want to consider starting with Physical Therapy as it can address the specific injury or health condition and can prepare you for Pilates classes.

WHERE DO I START?2023-01-01T21:01:53-10:00

If you have an injury or a prescription for physical therapy from your doctor, contact us to set up your first appointment and find out about insurance coverage. To start Pilates classes, contact the front desk to schedule a New Client Introduction and Assessment. After you assessment, you can click on the class schedule, find the class you want and sign up. You will be prompted to create an account and purchase a class package or membership. If you’d like to try first we have a $10 trial class for new clients only!

Keep in mind if you are new to Pilates and have never used the reformer, we highly suggest you take a beginner’s evaluation so we can help you choose the appropriate class. Private Pilates sessions may be recommended to address specific needs and fitness goals. Please complete the Contact form to schedule a beginner’s evaluation or Private sessions.


Physical Therapy is a medical service covered by insurance that helps you rehabilitate from acute or chronic injuries. It usually occurs after a specific injury or surgical procedure, but oftentimes will be done years after an injury. If you are having pain or physical problems, you will benefit from physical therapy. If you aren’t sure physical therapy is right for you or don’t have a doctor to ask for a referral to physical therapy, contact us and we can help.


Hawaii is a direct access state, which means that legally you do need a prescription or a referral from a doctor to start physical therapy. However, most insurances require that you have one. It is best to check with your insurance. If you aren’t sure how to obtain a prescription, contact us and we will help.


At Harmony Pilates & Physical Therapy, you will see only a licensed physical therapist – never an aide or assistant. Our therapists have over 40 years of combined experience, and are trained in manual therapy, sports injuries, balance issues, prenatal conditions, post-operative rehabilitation, and many other areas. Every appointment is an hour long, and treatments are focused on your specific rehabilitation needs. We work closely with your doctor sending them an initial evaluation and progress reports to include them in your care. We work with many physicians, osteopaths, chiropractors and other health professionals across Honolulu and all of Oahu, and take most insurance plans.


Yes! We accept most insurance plans for physical therapy, and will work with your insurance to find out your coverage and if there is any prior authorization required. Many insurance plans have a copay that you will be responsible for and a possible deductible. Copays vary depending on your insurance plan. Your insurance will be able to tell you your exact deductible or copay. Currently we do not accept AlohaCare or Kaiser for physical therapy.


All of our physical therapists are trained in Pilates and will be able to use the Pilates equipment for your therapy when it is appropriate. Pilates is not the only thing we do in physical therapy, we also use traditional physical rehabilitation techniques and modalities.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING AND/OR WEAR?2020-11-08T13:45:44-10:00

Wear comfortable clothes to move in. For women we suggest exercise pants or short, sports bra and t-shirt / tank and for men we suggest exercise pants or shorts and a t-shirt. No need for sports shoes in Pilates! We suggest wearing Pilates’ toe socks they have sticky pads on the bottom so you won’t slide on the equipment. We have them available for purchase. Socks also keep your feet, the equipment and studio clean and sanitary. For physical therapy, please wear clothes that allow us to get to the injured area.

I am so impressed with Harmony Pilates in Manoa Marketplace. The instructors are so excellent and guide you safely through the exercises to help prevent you from any injuries. I have noticed a huge improvement to my leg strength and more flexibility. In addition, they keep the studio and machines very clean. I would highly recommend this place!😊

Pilates has helped me recover quickly from two pregnancies and strengthened and lengthened my muscles in ways that no other workout routine has! It’s a great way to relieve stress and Harmony’s instructors have been so wonderful over the years! Mahalo, Harmony!

Love Harmony Pilates! I’ve been working out here for the past year and a half and I can’t say enough good things. Amazing dedicated instructors, great customer service, beautiful clean space, and my health and wellness have improved exponentially from my regular pilates practice. Take a class and see for yourself! You won’t regret it.

I started taking pilates at Harmony a year ago. When I started my lung function was at 38%. The staff and instructors took my disability into consideration during exercise regimen. I had my annual pulmonologist appointment last week and my lung function had increased to 51% over one year! I had also lost about 7 pounds and a dress size. I feel great and wish to thank the Harmony team. The studio is well appointed with stellar instructors. There is schedule that anyone can find a suitable time with a variety of options both in Kailua and Manoa. If you want to improve your health and work on your strength try it out. You are sure to see results if you stay with it.
