About Line5 Studios

Line5 Pilates Studio is located at 1 West Pender in the Chinese Freemasons Building, an award-winning, 1907 heritage space at the gates of Vancouver’s Chinatown, close to Stadium Station.

Experience Pilates private sessions or classes as well as movement workshops in our welcoming, spacious and light-filled studio. Enjoy wood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and new Pilates reformers, towers and stability chairs. An intricate 20-foot-high Chinese window screen divides the studio into two beautiful spaces. One for private sessions and the other for equipment classes and group workshops. In keeping with the building’s unique heritage, exterior window hangings feature archival news stories from 1910.

Since it’s expansion in 2012, Line5 was featured on Breakfast Television and selected as one of the top three Pilates Studios in the Best of the City for the quality of instruction and beautiful location.

Our philosophy

At Line5, Pilates is our life passion and we want to share it. We’re dedicated to the process of learning about the effect of the mind on the body and how to unlock the barriers that get in your way. Our job is to free up possibilities. To get to the yes-we-can-do-it, rather than the no-we-can’t.

We’re well-educated professionals who have studied Pilates results on ourselves and are hungry to learn more. Each person we work with provides us with that opportunity. Our approach is results-oriented and fun!

Our Approach

You get undivided attention and privacy in our exclusive private instruction on equipment. Line5 also offers semi-privates, customized for your specific needs. We keep our classes small – only 4 people to a session so you still get a lot of individual attention. We stay true to the intent and effectiveness of Pilates, designed to get results through a personalized approach.

line5 Pilates studiosMeet Mylene Perrier – Line5 Studios

Studio owner and instructor Mylene Perrier has a passion for Pilates and movement that she is dedicated to sharing. Line5 Studios is the result of her dream to bring together a unique team of instructors to provide holistic, lifestyle services in one beautiful space.

“Pilates changed my life and gave me the confidence I wanted. It gave me the energy and drive I needed to do the things I love to do. It has helped me recover from injuries and keep me free of pain. Knowing my body more everyday, I understand how to work with it and feel good about it. And it keeps me looking good – I have a slow metabolism and Pilates keeps it going.

Pilates helps me work from a place of awareness and a deep sense of calm, it gives me the tools to welcome challenges with energy and humour. It’s like peeling an onion: you can do it all your life and you’ll never get to the core. There will always be more to discover!”
