“Vintage Pilates houses every piece of GRATZ equipment that Joseph Pilates invented. Jay Grimes trained our instructors to use every piece of equipment that Joe created—emphasizing the importance of choosing the right exercises combined with the right apparatus, to best serve each unique client. On a regular basis, virtually every piece of GRATZ equipment is used.”

STUDIO

Vintage Pilates was conceived as a studio where Joseph Pilates' original method and philosophy would be embodied and practiced. It would to be a place where Jay Grimes—who learned Pilates from Joseph and Clara starting in the '60s—could pass on his knowledge to a new generation of practitioners. With Jay Grimes as director of Vintage Pilates and Sandy Shimoda as its owner, Vintage Pilates attracts practitioners and teachers from all over the world, who are called to learn Pilates the way Jay had (delete) learned it.

Sandy confides that it has been a daily process of discovery and fine-tuning, to keep the integrity of Joe Pilates' philosophy, and Jay's specific vision alive, while meeting the needs of the clients and business. From the way the instructors teach private lessons and group classes, to the photos on the walls, Sandy aims to reflect the goals and sensibilities of Joe's original New York studio.

 

 

PEOPLE

As well as being a regular Pilates studio, Vintage Pilates offers continuing education programs for experienced teachers. Sandy Shimoda has been a private client of Jay’s since 2004 and all of the staff instructors have studied extensively through Vintage Pilates programs, have spent many hours observing, and were hand picked to teach along-side Jay Grimes (delete). In this way, the oral history of Joseph Pilates' philosophy, as interpreted by Jay, is being passed along. All who come through the studio doors have the benefit of being steeped in this environment of constant learning and dedication to Joe's original method.
