About The Sisterhood
The Balanced Life Sisterhood is a monthly Pilates subscription service designed to help you stay focused, stay consistent, and stay motivated with your workouts and healthy lifestyle goals throughout the year.
Each month Sisterhood members receive a monthly workout calendar, one brand new 30-40 minute Pilates or barre video workout, resources focused on our monthly mission, a free printable, a monthly recipe bundle, and discounts on The Balanced Life programs.
We’re currently focused on serving, inspiring and encouraging our current members. If you want to love your body more, build strength, improve flexibility and join a community that supports you every step of the way, you’ll LOVE The Sisterhood!
Visit The Balanced Life Sisterhood to learn more about The Sisterhood and sign up to join our waitlist! Those on the waitlist will be the first to be notified when enrollment re-opens. 🙂
After you join The Sisterhood, you’ll receive a welcome email with all of the instructions and information you need to know about your Sisterhood account. Once you log in, you will have access to The Sisterhood content immediately. You can set up your profile, browse workouts, and start connecting with like-minded women from all around the world.
The monthly workout calendar assigns workouts Monday through Friday. Each week includes 3-4 short (5-10 minute) workouts from our YouTube channel and 2-3 full-length (30-40 minute) Sisterhood-only workouts.
No problem! New calendars and workouts are released on the 1st of the month, but you are welcome to join any time!
Yay! We are so excited to have you join us in The Sisterhood. To activate your gift membership, please email us via our contact page and we can provide you with instructions. At this time open enrollment to The Sisterhood is closed, but we will honor your gift memberships so you can get started right away!
Sisterhood members can switch from their monthly rate to the current annual membership rate at anytime. Email us at email@example.com for the current annual price and instructions on how to make the switch!
All you need is a mat, internet connection, and device to watch the workouts on! We sometimes feature fun workouts with equipment, but they are always optional or can be substituted with household items. Here are some of Robin’s favorite Pilates gear.
Congratulations! We are so happy for you. 🙂 We always recommend that you check with your health care provider first, but most women need to start modifying at 13-15 weeks. Sisterhood members have access to The Sisterhood workout library which features many “prenatal friendly” workouts. Sisterhood members also receive a discount on our Balanced Beginnings (prenatal pilates) program.
After you have been cleared by your health care provider to exercise, take it slow and try to give yourself lots of grace. When you’re ready to start exercising, here are two posts to help you ease back into Pilates: Postpartum Exercise and Pilates and Diastasis Recti.
Yes, your card will be automatically billed every month (or year) on the date that you sign up.

Once you cancel, you will not be billed for the following month.* After you cancel your membership, your login will remain active and your account will be set to expire at the end of your payment period. Once expired, you will no longer have access to the Sisterhood features, such as workout calendars, groups, resources, and more.

If you know your credit card is about to expire, you can update it under My Membership.* If your credit card expires and the payment can’t be completed, your membership will be cancelled. However, you can rejoin as an existing member and all of your previous membership history will be saved.
*If you originally signed up via PayPal, you will need to update your credit card information in your PayPal account.
