For over 15 years Dana has been running her studio and workshops and educating her current teachers to standards that are held very high. Through her 20-year relationship with Pilates, Dana has realized that there are very few regional training programs available to people whom want to study and become great teachers in the art of the traditional and authentic method of Pilates.
In 2011, Dana began putting together a training program that would replicate the most rigorous, exacting Pilates training programs in the world and make them available in and around the Midwestern United States.
Equipment is a very important part of the traditional training. The equipment is based on the original designs of Joseph Pilates. It is manufactured by Gratz Industries, LLC, an 80 year- old manufacturing company. Gratz continues to create the apparatus of choice by Romana Kryzanowska and Jay Grimes. Choice of equipment is critical and we are happy to say we have the best.
