Our Team

Our team, headed by Alessandra Pelonara, consists of third generation teachers of the Classical Pilates.
Each of us has studied with teachers trained at the school of Roman Kryzanowska or Jay Grimes, both direct descendants of ‘the pure teaching’ of Joseph Pilates, inventor of the Method.
Alessandra comes from a dance tradition and then from fitness, Elisabetta from Musicals, Riccardo from kayak and Angela from wakeboard: they are all lovers of the Method and moved by a great passion and professionalism and eager to make available to you their expertise.
Thanks to the professional experience of our international staff, we can speak in English in our classes, if our customer requires it.
