About Us

We are Mark and Olga Lubarsky, husband and wife. We’ve been practicing movement methods here in San Mateo area since 2001. Originally, we founded Pilates Family® studio where we focused on physical rehabilitation and prevention from injuries. In 2007, we discovered Anat Baniel and Feldenkrais methods. This experience had opened our eyes to new possibilities to help our clients. We studied with Anat Baniel for several years and expanded our practice to include this powerful transformational work. We observed significant changes in our clients’ well-being, from natural pain relief and recovery to achieving maximum potential through ease and freedom of movement.

Olga was raised in a family of a well-respected Orthopedic Doctor. She observed her grandmother saving injured patients on a daily basis. Olga grew passionate about helping those in pain, which brought her to this profession. After years of Pilates instruction, Olga was inspired by the power of Feldenkrais method (specifically ABM NeuroMovement) and found ways to integrate two modalities. Olga is a certified Pilates instructor since 2002. She also completed a 756 hours of Feldenkrais-based training with Anat Baniel (2009-2012), including Children’s Mastery certification. Olga is offering Functional Synthesis(™) lessons (hands-on work), Transformational Movement Lessons(™) and Pilates.

Mark’s main passion and area of focus is helping people dealing with problems related to sedentary lifestyle (he is a software engineer by trade). Mark is a certified Pilates instructor since 2002. He also completed 450 hours of Anat Baniel Method/Feldenkrais from Anat Baniel in 2011 and has also studied Ericksonian method from Dr. Eric Greenleaf at the Milton Erickson Institute of the Bay Area.
