We’re ready to help you transform your life. The Dailey Method is the fastest way to a strong, lean, sculpted body. Combining the best of Pilates, yoga, and ballet barre training, our classes are an ever-evolving mix of movement that offer extreme benefits for body and mind. Our classes are driven by fitness research and our students’ needs. We offer individualized attention in a group setting to give you the strength, discipline, and joy to find ultimate alignment.

We are following state and CDC guidelines to keep you safe while working out at our studios!

  • proof of vaccination required for all in-person classes
  • all mats, weights, and props are regularly sanitized
  • Our HVAC systems in both studios have been upgraded with air scrubber filters that utilize UV technology to clean the air coming in and out, effectively increasing air turnover

I love the Dailey Method. It keeps me strong, and limber, helps me keep a healthy back and healthy joints. The teachers are amazingly knowledgeable. I also love that there’s a big range of ages of women in class. I can see strong models of aging beautifully and aging strong that make me feel very hopeful about my own future.

When I started going to Dailey Method, I felt that I’d finally discovered an exercise program that works for me. I began attending classes after I had my first child and it transformed my body. Dailey Method makes me stronger and more toned and gives me extra energy. The instructors are enthusiastic and attentive. The classes are fun and the music is great.

The Dailey Method offers so many classes that there’s always a time I can work into my schedule. I think the teachers are very professional and provide hands-on instruction that ensures that I am safe while I am getting my workout. TDM has changed my body and, by extension, the way I take care of myself. I love TDM!

I like that even though I had no background in yoga, dance, etc. I was able to follow along from the first class and to benefit from the various exercises. Locations and times are convenient, and the studio provides a pleasant atmosphere for both me and my son.

Susan Willrich

Susan Willrich opened the first Dailey Method franchised studio, The Dailey Method Piedmont, in 2005. Prior to launching her own studio, Susan completed her Master Instructor certification under the direction of Jill Dailey, teaching classes at the original San Francisco and Marin locations since 2003.

In addition to instructing clients, Susan enjoys the process of recruiting and training our top-notch teaching staff. A graduate of UC Berkeley, Susan’s life-long background in dance and yoga drew her to The Dailey Method. “It combines all the elements of fitness that I truly love: yoga, pilates, and dance. I’ve tried everything, and nothing gave me the results so quickly, efficiently and safely as The Dailey Method. The emphasis on alignment and posture has helped me to stand taller, and feel more confident. Plus, it’s so nostalgic & fun to be at a ballet barre! I feel so lucky I can share it with my community.
