What is Authentic Pilates?

Authentic/Classical or Traditional Pilates describes the original body of work created by Joseph Pilates during the 20th century and then passed down to his protegee and first generation teacher Romana Kryzanowska. 

We are very proud to keep the original method alive and are the only studio in South Australia to offer this type of Pilates training. We believe in the effectiveness of the original method and share this passion with our clients in a personalised and friendly environment.
