Grand Opening in San Diego. A fun night with Pilates demonstrations, drinks and hors d'oeuvre.
Joseph Pilates put it best, “Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit.” I enjoy seeing those words manifest in my clients’ work and love witnessing the improvements that happen in their bodies.

Welcome to The Art of Control Pilates Studio in Stamford, Connecticut. I’m Simona Cipriani, owner of The Art of Control Pilates Studio and Educational Director of The Art and Science of Contrology Pilates Instructor Training.
We are thrilled to announce that we have received our new Archive Reformer by Gratz Industries! I would like to take this opportunity to go over the differences between the Archive Reformer versus other Gratz Reformers we have at the studio. To "Test Drive" the Gratz Archive Reformer, you can book your visit by calling (203) 973 7262 or visit our website at www.artofcontrol.com.
Let's go over the noticeable differences when performing the basic reformer sequence.
Contrology Pilates Studio
I love the shorter shoulder blocks. They ‘embrace’ your shoulder in a different way when you laid down. Even on Stomach Massage hands back, was for some of my clients with tight shoulders a difference, because the hands are placed a little lower, so they did not sink that fast into their shoulders.
The thinner and harder foam on the carriage is so much better, at least for me. I have a small scoliosis, now I feel much better how my back is laid down on the carriage. Short Spine massage is one of those exercises where I feel a huge difference when articulating down. Plus it has the same effect if you take off the padding off the footbar. You feel better connected with the Reformer.
The O-ring on the straps are pretty smart – it happens that sometimes the handle and strap would not rotate freely, and that doesn’t happen anymore. And the 80” Reformer length and the shorter leather straps help in the rowing series and I feel so much better connected.
The deeper gear position seems to be safer when you change the gear.
