Hands & Feet
A few changes in the position of the hands and feet, can change an entire workout. Create new work within the movement and simply watch the correct muscles fire all because of the position, weight and placement of our hands and feet.

Brutal Basics
Gain new meaning to the notion that the advanced exercises are what make you advanced. Come discover and remember how brutal and important the basics can be….less is more and simple is not simple very simple anymore.

Teach the Body, Not the Manual
Gain a different perspective of the method and recognize how Joe’s equipment and exercises can truly teach the body. All it takes is a good eye and an understanding of different body types. Watch the joints and muscles move into place right before your very eyes.

​The ABC’s of the Equipment
The equipment was built this way for a reason. Discover how it enhances the exercises and simplifies teaching in so many ways. You just need to recognize its function.

​Maintenance Man
Whether he uses Pilates to keep him pain-free, stress-free or to improve his golf game, explore new tactics to keep him coming back.

Don’t Get Teased By the Teaser​
Gain a new understanding as to why the teaser is one of the most natural movements of the body. This workshop will change the way you look at the body in front of you, will clean up your mat work and mostly change the way you look at the teaser.

Wunda Chair
Save time and create new challenges with the Wunda Chair. Stack, combine and choreograph exercises in order to squeeze every drop out of yourself or your client.

Named after the fanciest car of time...If we are going to get our fancy on, then let's make sure we understand all the components and accessories established, as well as, the directions to where we are going. From springs, to bars, to straps and handles, to hanging, to standing, to sitting and kneeling...better wear your fancy shoes because the Cadillac is quite the ride.




About Dana Santi

Dana Santi began studying the Pilates method in 1996 in Evanston, IL. She studied under the direction of Juanita Lopez and was certified by Romana Kryzanowska in 1998. After completing her certification, Dana taught at and managed The Pilates Studio of The Midwest at Hubbard Street in Chicago, IL, a certification studio for what was The New York Pilates Studio® and The Pilates Guild™. In 2002, Dana opened The Pilates Core, Inc. in LaGrange, IL. She has always believed that keeping Pilates authentic is what makes a successful studio. In 2004, Dana met and studied with Jay Grimes in Los Angeles, CA. That meeting changed Dana's life and she is honored to borrow every ounce of inspiration and wisdom that he can provide. Dana devotes much of her non-teaching time to studying and networking with other classically trained teachers. With their combined expertise, Dana organizes workshops and conferences devoted to educating participants in the traditional and authentic Pilates method. In 2016, Dana closed down The Pilates Core, moved the studio and rebranded as Dana Santi Pilates. This move has allowed Dana to teach, travel, train and most importantly be there for her kids. Dana can be found teaching classes on Pilates Anytime and currently, Dana serves as Co-Chair and is a founding member of the Authentic Pilates Union.
