Phone: 212.420.9111 (re:AB)
Certified By: Brooke Siler
Makela Spielman first experienced Pilates as a dance minor at Oberlin College in 1994. But it wasn’t until 1998, while training to run the AIDS marathon, that she began studying more seriously with Lesa McLaughlin at Excel Movement Studios, an authentic Pilates studio in Washington, DC. Pilates kept her injury-free while running, and helped her grow stronger, longer and more flexible. She discovered then, and continues to love, how Pilates is challenging and inspiring at every level of fitness and for every body.

In 2001, Makela moved from DC to San Diego to study acting at the University of California, San Diego/La Jolla Playhouse. While there, she taught Acting, Public Speaking, and Voice to undergraduate students. After earning her MFA, Makela moved to New York to continue her acting career. Here she began training at re:AB, working with master instructors, Brooke Siler and Cary Regan, among re:AB’s many other gifted teachers. Makela then enrolled in re:AB’s inaugural Teacher Training Program—a 700 hour certification in classical, authentic Pilates, and was the very first instructor to be certified, in April 2006. She is thrilled to continue deepening her knowledge and love of Pilates through teaching.

Makela teaches privates, semis and classes at re:AB Pilates Bleecker Street.
