Toronto is home to Stott Pilates and their certification school, so almost all of the teachers and studios in Toronto teach this system and are outfitted with their equipment.

At Las Colinas Pilates you’ll find a beautiful, comfortable atmosphere and experience personalized Pilates instruction that will make you eager to return.

Pilates Authentica

After completing training with Romana’s Pilates in 2009, I wanted to share my knowledge of True Pilates with the growing metropolis of San Antonio, Texas. No longer wanting to work on substandard Pilates equipment in a gym, I had the opportunity to purchase Gratz equipment and open my own studio. Starting in a small 425 sq. foot room in a Personal Training Studio, I was able to teach clients and show the distinction of equipment true to Joseph Pilates method. Not soon after I opened, did the business grow, and I decided it was time to move into a bigger space. Now Pilates Authentica is conveniently located on Highway 281 in North Central San Antonio. I am privileged to be the only studio in San Antonio to have Gratz equipment.
