Welcome to Center of Balance, voted "Best Pilates Studio in the Bay Area" by San Francisco Magazine!
Center of Balance was founded in 1997 by health and movement specialist Tom McCook and business partner and wife, Karen deMoor. Guided by Tom's educational vision and Karen's organizational management, Center of Balance has developed into an internationally-recognized learning destination and teacher training center, specializing in Pilates, Yoga, CoreAlign, Franklin Method®, BodyCode System, resistance stretching, bodywork and Physical Therapy.

We continue to seek out and share innovative mind/body concepts, feeding Center of Balance's rich learning environment. Students and teachers from throughout the Bay area — and as far as Europe and Asia — travel to our Mountain View studio for training and continuing education.
