“In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 you’ll see the difference, and in 30 you’ll have a new body.”
Classical Pilates Mat Work, a system invented by Joe Pilates and originally called Contrology, promotes physical, mental and emotional well being addressing the two main concerns of society today: fitness and stress.
Modern lifestyles have grown increasingly less active and more stressful, impacting quality of life. The pace of today’s society, the aging worldwide population, and the now-public awareness of the mind-body connection has created an increasing interest in Classical Pilates as a mind, body and spirit connection.
“If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”

Science shows that the body needs to learn how to move correctly. The ability to perceive movement properly is rarely emphasized in modern training methods, allowing dysfunction to develop. While the brain recognizes basic movement patterns, it does not naturally focus on muscles or muscle groups or know how to sequentially build upon basic patterns of movement in a healthy way. Joe Pilates understood these issues and to deal with muscle group training requirement he invented this wonderful system that I am teaching today where I remain faithful to the original method allowing you to feel the intended benefits from the very beginning!

Joe Pilates Invented the System called Contrology and today I teach both the Classical System and the Classical Pilates Mat Work.
I have just relocated to Roanoke, Virginia USA and I am now preparing to teach Classical Pilates Mat Work; I am available for private sessions; and looking forward for new places where I can share with all of you the original Mat Exercises invented for our Joe Pilates.
“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure.”
