Dana Jones and I are currently the instructors on staff. We strive to make our studio a reflection of our community as we are all small buisness owners who make an effort to support each other. Our clients come from many different backgrounds and walks of life and all share our deep passion for Pilates.
The studio is the SOUL. It is the place where you can isolate yourself, withdraw from the outside world, from your worries and obligations, the place where your body/mind connection is encouraged. We are located in the city of Barcelona, in the neighbourhood of Sant-Gervasi, which is located in the high and central part of the city next to the famous neighbourhoods of Sarria and Gracia.
Nicoletta Ciardo graduated from Italy’s College of Physical Education (ISEF) majoring in Kinesiology in addition to being an athlete, swimmer and gym instructor. She fell in love with Pilates in London in 2000 and studied with Jay Grimes, one of Joe Pilates’ closest collaborators at the Vintage Pilates studio in Los Angeles receiving her diploma from ‘THE WORK’.
We like to see our studio as a meeting place of good energy. Our goal after every lesson is to have our client to leave happier than they walked in, like Joe always wished. We are working hard everyday to achieve our smallest goals, but I think that’s exactly the spirit of our small studio.
