“To teach the original method, we need the original equipment – and that is GRATZ!”
- Amanda Diatta - Owner & Instructor
Contrology Pilates Studio, Stuttgart
Thousands of shoppers flock to Koenigstrasse, Stuttgart’s bustling pedestrian street that’s nearly a mile long. Despite being entirely free of cars, the popular boulevard can get pretty noisy. But just around a corner and up a flight of stairs, Contrology Pilates Studio offers an airy and quiet oasis of clarity. Women, men and teens appreciate the personal and welcoming atmosphere created by Amanda Diatta and her dedicated team. The spacious, light rooms are fully appointed with GRATZ equipment.
People from 14 to 83 years of age visit the studio regularly – either for private or duet classes on the equipment, or for group classes on GRATZ low mats. And groups are never larger than five people, so individual support and progress is ensured.
“Contrology” is how Joe Pilates himself referred to his method. “I didn’t want it to call my studio ‘Pilates Amanda’ or anything like that, because it’s not about me – it’s all about this brilliant method,” explains the owner with a smile.
In October 2021, Contrology Pilates Studio will celebrate its 7th anniversary.
Amanda trained on GRATZ equipment from the very beginning of her Pilates journey. So there was never a question of changing that. Over the years, when traveling, she also worked on other equipment, but those experiences made it even clearer why Joe Pilates had designed the apparatus the way he did. “We want to teach the original method, so we need the original equipment – and that is GRATZ!” says Amanda.
