Dear BR community,

I wanted to thank you all for the outpour of support and understanding, during these times of adversity.

While the BR studio sadly no longer exists, I am excited about LA county re-opening and less restrictions.

This is an informal update, as nothing is set in stone as of yet.

However after multiple inquiries, I know several of you have purchased your own reformers.

I’m currently able to offer in home private sessions (at your home) for that added guidance and motivation, along with my other services Reiki energy healing, done in person or distant healing, this can be done individually or in combination.

Please DM for details if interested in one or the other.

I look forward to giving you further updates, and to see all of your wonderful faces in the near future!

Dear BR family,

We know it’s been a while since our last announcement and with a heavy heart, this will be our final message of 2020. COVID-19 has brought an unprecedented toll on our new small business and through many sleepless nights, we have been forced with the decision to close our Melrose location. We hope that you understand and respect the difficult choices we’ve had to make throughout this process.

As of right now, it's too early to know if we will be able to reopen in 2021 at a new location. If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that we are not in control and we just have to let go and trust in the process. We are trusting that this is for the best.

We've had an amazing time getting to know each and everyone of you during the few short months we were open, your presence and support alone brought us an abundance of joy we will carry with us into the future. We hope that you are staying healthy and safe, and wishing you well during this upcoming holiday season.
Let’s be present, be grateful, and not take any days for granted!

Warm wishes,
Balance Reform

Dear BR family!

We wanted to update everyone that the reason we weren’t comfortable opening up last month was due to the uncertainty surrounding that “test period” and unfortunately as anticipated fitness studios have been shut down again.

Risking your health and safety and that of our staff, for a few weeks - at a time when covid cases are soaring - didn’t seem responsible nor justified.

Needless to say these past months have been devastating for all... and we truly miss the vibrancy of you all at the studio!

We appreciate your understanding and patience, and are finding solace knowing that we are all facing this together.

Sending you all love and light, stay safe! ✨

Most you may recognize this face, but for those of you who don’t, please meet the owner... ✨
Janina Washington is German-born and British raised by an American Cherokee father & a German mother. Her very esoteric and spiritually inclined mother introduced Janina to the world of Healers, Reiki Masters and Mediums at a very young age. She is also trained in musical theater, acting, singing, and studied dance for over a decade. When she moved to LA, she discovered Pilates, which offered the mind/body connection she was looking for as well as an excellent workout. Since 2014, she’s been teaching Pilates classes in LA!
In addition to teaching Pilates, Janina is a Certified Reiki Master.
Holding space for people and animals to restore balance is very rewarding for her. When she’s not busy with the above, she is raising two rescued pitbulls with her vegan-chef boyfriend, and is an avid vegan and animal advocate.
BR is a boutique Reformer Pilates & wellness studio that offers energy and sound healing to help restore balance and mind body connection. ✨

A familiar face to most maybe new to some... Meet or wonderful Julia Originally from Ohio, who’s first introduction to movement was at the age of 2 when she began dancing. Always intrigued with the body and it’s mechanics, she started looking for other modalities to move her body, from distance running, to cheerleading, she fell in love with how freeing it felt to just move. After suffering an injury from running that left her stagnant for months, she found Pilates at a small studio near Union Square in NYC which helped her to rehabilitate and continue on with her movement journey.

When she moved to LA, she decided to take her Pilates practice a step further and enrolled in teacher training at Sheppard Method Pilates in Westwood. There, she studied a classical pilates repertoire which hails from Pilates elder Ron Fletcher — his work includes more movement and flow than Joseph’s original work.

Julia’s goal when working with clients is to make people feel comfortable in their bodies while allowing them to move without inhibition regardless of injury. She believes Pilates is the all encompassing connection between mind, body, and soul.

Jam: Cold War — Cautious Clay 🎶 Favorite pilates move: I love a good plank series 🔥
Dream travel destination: Egypt 🌍

Pilates exercises teach awareness of neutral alignment of the spine and strengthening the deep postural muscles that support this alignment, which are important to help alleviate and prevent back pain. 📖

Meet another one of our new additions ✨she gives a killer mat workout ✨ Abbey, found Pilates over a decade ago as a student and fitness model in New York City. She fell in love with the intense mind-body connection to reduce stress and increase focus. As an athlete growing up she constantly challenged her body and played through many injuries. Pilates offered a practice to work through these injuries and increase awareness of weaknesses. She became passionate about learning everything the system had to offer from classical to contemporary.
Abbey is a third generation teacher. She received a mat certification from Power Pilates in NYC and a full certification from The Sheppard Method Pilates Teacher Training Program in Los Angeles under Justin Cook and Risa Sheppard, from the Ron Fletcher lineage. Abbey loves helping her clients get deeper in the basic exercises and challenge their limits by building on the fundamentals. She works to ensure her clients understand the purpose of the exercise while guiding them to find the muscle groups targeted. Abbey helps her clients improve strength, flexibility, balance and movement efficiency. She is intense, but fun, loves teaching and has a great time with her clients!

After growing up very athletic, recruited for state high jump and competitive tennis, Vanessa decided to pursue her career in modeling after being scouted by her ballet teacher. To keep a some of the athletic flavor she loved she earned her Master Personal Trainer Certification through the Australian Institute of Fitness.
