Lili Viola Pilates
Authentic to the Core. We are serious about Pilates. We believe that in order for you to reap the greatest benefits for your body, mind, and spirit, you need to have access to everything that Pilates can offer. This is why we launched Toronto's first Authentic Pilates studio. While other facilities offer mat-only classes, just reformer-based workouts, or modern takes on Pilates, we provide you with the full Pilates experience as it was created and intended by its founder, Joseph Pilates.

Our teachers are certified in Classical Pilates, the only system that stays true to the source. Our apparatus is crafted by Gratz, the original manufacturer of Pilates machines.

Whether you're new to Pilates, or experienced in a contemporary approach, we invite you to come experience the difference Authenticity makes.

Contrology Pilates Studio Stuttgart
Since becoming a state-approved teacher for gymnastics & sports (Sportschule Glucker, Stuttgart), certified Pilates trainer Amanda Diatta has gained 10 years’ professional experience in the fitness industry.

Along with continuing education in Spiraldynamik®, and becoming a back-exercise teacher and certified personal trainer, Amanda completed her Pilates training in 2009 at Pilates New York, in Joseph Pilates’ original Method of Body Conditioning. Her teacher, Davorka Kulenovic-Bischoff, was herself a student of Romana Kryzanowska, the successor appointed by Joseph Pilates himself.

After six years working with Davorka at Pilates New York, where Amanda assisted as a trainer, she realized her dream of opening her own Pilates studio. In 2014, Amanda founded CONTROLOGY in downtown Stuttgart.

Regular attendance at advanced workshops in Europe and the US – led by renowned teachers such as Kathryn Ross-Nash, Peter Fiasca, Lori Coleman-Brown, and Chris Robinson – allows Amanda to study the Pilates method in greater depth. To this end, she also maintains close contact with her international network of established Pilates trainers.
