“Joseph Pilates has dedicated his life to developing his science of Contrology and own apparatus.
Gratz’s slogan, “He invented it. Gratz makes it.” is reason enough for us to use only Gratz apparatus, as it was properly built to be used with the Pilates method.”
We are proud to feature our Classical Pilates studio, La Cima Pilates. Our studio is located in the center of Innsbruck, Austria, in the heart of the Alps. It has been our dream to teach the Classical Pilates method, to let people enjoy the movement and the experience how it changes their mind and body.
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. It’s a place of happiness and encouragement. I like the idea that our clients are able to do some exercises they never imagined doing before just after a few classes. It’s breathtaking to watch our clients expand the capabilities of their mind and body. We enjoy being part of this process in every single student and they are also part of our own growing process. Every single student is teaching us so much about ourselves and for this we are very thankful.

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.

I opened Pilates Avenue in 2013, in a small space near downtown Los Gatos, California. We are an hour south of San Francisco in an area known as “Silicon Valley” because of all the hitech companies in the region. It’s a humble little neighborhood place, welcoming and intimate.
