Studio MDR is one of my favorite workouts on ClassPass. The workout is incredibly challenging, but you always leave feeling better for it and wanting to come back. The studio and machines are all clean and relatively new and the space is very inviting. Most classes work your entire body, from core and upper body to legs and booty. My favorite instructors are Natalya and Leianna, though supposedly Ky is amazing. (Unfortunately, his classes are usually not available on ClassPass).
This definitely isn’t your entry-level pilates class, though they now have a basics class for beginners. The range of class times is great as well, starting as early as 5AM until 9:20PM. The instructors are all inviting and encouraging, and definitely not snooty like some instructors at other reformer pilates classes. I highly, highly recommend this studio (with locations in Marina del Rey and Culver).
