(Past Event) The Guillotine and a Different Cadillac: Unusual Exercises

PILATISTIC Old School Pilates | The Guillotine and a Different Cadillac: Unusual Exercises


The Guillotine is an exceptional and genuine apparatus. However, we are a minority of studios in world that have this magnificent equipment. And for that reason, in PILATISTIC we want to offer the community the possibility of becoming familiar with the only device in the Method that presents vertical resistance. In addition, we will dedicate the second part of this peculiar seminar to show a different perspective of the Cadillac: we will share unusual exercises to get the most of Joe's 'bednasium'.

About Marian Tarín

Marian Tarín started practicing Pilates while she was studying Journalism at the International University of Catalonia. She was so amazed the way the Method challenged her body that, when she received her master’s degree in 2004, she decided to undertake a new way.

She has travelled to Brazil and the U.S.A. to train and learn from some of the best Classical Pilates teachers. In 2009, she received her certification from the Pilates Method Alliance. A couple of years later, she opened a studio in Barcelona; she co-owns PILATISTIC Old School Pilates (Centre Pilates Tiana). Due to her unceasing interest in improving her professional skills, she decides to study with elder Jay Grimes, in Los Angeles, California. During her apprenticeship, Marian also trains with the founders of Vintage Pilates, Sandy Shimoda and Karen Frischmann. In 2013, Marian completes The Work and a year later, Jay chooses her for the master Teaching the Work 2015-2016, a highly selective program where she continued improving her skills and developing her own style as a teacher. Marian is honored to be one of the few instructors in the world who has completed this exclusive mentorship.

In parallel, she has collaborated in all the editions of the Valencia Classical Pilates Conference. She's been the translator-assistant of international teachers such as Peter Fiasca, Lori Coleman-Brown, Chris Robinson and Dorothee Vandewalle.
