About Jay Grimes

Jay Grimes began his studies with Joe Pilates in the mid-sixties, and after Joe’s death continued with Joe’s wife, Clara, for another 10 years until her death. Jay began teaching in the original 8th Ave studio in New York and has since taught all over the world. Jay danced professionally, ballet and Broadway for 18 years, and never had an injury. This he attributes entirely to Pilates. Jay is valued in the Pilates community for his experience, humility and integrity in maintaining the work of Joe Pilates. Over the years Jay’s clients have ranged from stars of Broadway and Hollywood, music and opera, to politicians, businessmen and housewives, and Olympic athletes.

Jay does not take on new clients, but he offers regular workshops and master classes, locally and around the world (some are also offered as live, online feeds). Jay directs and teaches THE WORK—Vintage Pilates’ Master’s Program for certified teachers.

About Sandy Shimoda

Sandy is the owner of Vintage Pilates in West Los Angeles, a studio dedicated to teaching Pilates the way Joe intended it. Students and teachers from around the globe have made the studio a destination and Sandy enjoys finding creative ways to make Vintage Pilates accessible. Under the direction of Jay Grimes, Sandy operates two Masters level training programs for certified teachers of all disciplines. At Vintage Pilates she aims to bring teachers together in a supportive community that encourages a deeper study and practice of Contrology, looking beyond the exercises to understand the entire method and philosophy of Joe Pilates.

Having taught movement for over 30 years, Sandy has a keen understanding of the body. She is best known for her “pleasant but powerful”, “creative but clear” approach to teaching. Clients often comment on her ability to positively transform people—with her hands, with her words, and with her belief in them. Teachers describe her as possessing a “wisdom” that encourages deeper understanding and independent thinking.

Sandy has studied Pilates with Lori Coleman-Brown, Dorothee Vandewalle, Romana Kryzanowska and Jay Grimes and is grateful to each of them for their individual brilliance and the generosity of their teaching. A perpetual student, Sandy has also received training in related areas such as Thai Yoga Massage, Reiki, Rice Release and Yoga which have developed her intuitive and tactile approach to teaching. Sandy holds both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Business Administration.

Studio Pilates

Studio Pilates

Studio Pilates is located in Sarzana, a lovely little town in Liguria, Italy near the famous and amazing Cinque Terre area. My clients tell me they already feel better as soon as they get in the picturesque studio. My goal was to create an environment where one can feel and breathe the magic of Pilates. We have an energetic open space with an immense window that gives an amazing view of the mountains while you sweat and work hard!

Before Studio Pilates, I owned a gym with a small space designated to Pilates. My list of clients grew fast and as I developed my understanding of The Work I felt the need for a place dedicated to Pilates. I wanted a place where everybody is welcome and the focus is totally oriented to The Work - without the “distractions” often found in a gym. In my studio, I feel at home and I love it!

Studio Pilates is perfectly organized for clients. I also direct a teacher training school called Pilates E-Motion. The students feel welcome, stimulated to learn, and grow in their Pilates. They can come in for their observation anytime. I studied at Vintage Pilates with the amazing elder, Jay Grimes as well as Sandy Shimoda, owner of Vintage Pilates. Sandy visits Studio Pilates every year a guest teacher. Last year I organized the Classical Pilates Convention Pisa and I had the honor and pleasure of having Jay as a special guest teacher.
