Atlanta’s FIRST Classical Pilates Conference
(Atlanta, GA – Midtown) – October 21 through 23 Urban Body Studios along with Gratz Pilates will host the first Classical Pilates Conference in Atlanta. The conference will bring 5 of the TOP internationally known classically trained Pilates instructors together in one place for one weekend.
Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates. It was originally created for rehabilitation and recovery from injuries. Once Mr. Pilates moved to New York City his technique for this total mind / body training method, known at the time as “ Contrology” became used chiefly by dancers and elite athletes. The Classical Pilates style represented at this conference is used by many practitioners worldwide striving to improve their bodies and health and is directly descended from Joseph Pilates original work. The Gratz Pilates equipment used at Urban Body Studios is the original and authentic brand and maintains Mr Pilates original dimensions , strength and characteristic feel.
The master instructors of Pilates for the conference include
Peter Fiasca (best known for his “Classical Pilates Technique “Video Series and his book “Discovering Pure Classical Pilates”)

Dorothee VandeWalle (accomplished Pilates master and chief instructor at Metropolitan Pilates Seattle)

Atlanta’s own Penelope Wyer Barrow will also be teaching at the event. All of these instructors were trained by Romana Kryzanowska, who is one of the Elders of Pilates and learned directly from Joseph Pilates.
