“Rebellious offers its clientele only the best! Getting different brand apparatus was not an option. Investing in Gratz apparatus was the right decision. Every client who has been on different brand equipment comments on the stability and the greater resistance of the Gratz springs.”

- Maria Angelova - Owner & Instructor
Rebellious Intl



Conveniently nested in North Sandy Springs, GA, the small and cozy Rebellious studio is a tranquil oasis where clients destress and take time to devote to themselves only. Private, clean and well lighted, the inviting Rebellious studio attracts those on a healing and/ or transformational journey for body, mind and spirit. Integrity of movement, attention to the individual and detail distinguish the Rebellious service.

The studio was created with much love, passion and intent to positively impact clients’ lifestyles. With that in mind, only the best, including premium Gratz equipment only, can be found in the facility.

Rebellious offers private sessions on the apparatus as well as group mat classes. There is a definite sense of community amongst the rebellious tribe where each rebel is driven by desire to deepen their Pilates practice to the next level. Sweat, laughter, burning muscles, quieted mind, breath, elevated awareness and intent are part of each session.

The studio is equipped with a Gratz Reformer, Cadillac, Ladder Barrel and Wunda Chair. Water and towel services are included. Pure aromatherapy and soft classical music transform the ambience and sooth the senses. A smile is always a part of the greeting process. Only toxin-free products are used. All these extra step are undertaken with clients’ wellbeing in mind.



About Maria Angelova

Maria Angelova | Gratz Featured Studio About

Founder and Ceo of Rebellious Intl

Maria is a disruptor who traded the corporate world for her passion in fitness and wellness. Since age 16 and for the past 26 years, Maria has taught group fitness classes in various formats. In 2012, Maria discovered Pilates and fell in love with the method combining not only strength but also flexibility and fluidity. She was impressed by the impact Pilates had on her fitness routine and daily functional movement. Maria completed a 600-hour certification as a Romana teacher at Pilates of Dunwoody in June 2013 under Holly Pruell Leun and Juanita Lopez.  

The Rebellious Pilates studio opened its doors late fall of 2017. Continuously fascinated by the human body, Maria is a firm believer that Pilates can impact not only physical but also mental and spiritual wellbeing. She is a huge believer in the method and the importance of consistency, repetition and precision as well as teaching clients to respect and listen to their bodies. There is no “flip flopping” in the rebellious classes; clients are taught to work with intent and integrity.  

Prior to founding Rebellious Intl, Maria was a Finance Director and a professional with 17+ years of progressive corporate experience. Born in Bulgaria, Maria moved to the United States in 1992. She graduated summa cum laude from both Georgia State University (MBA, Finance) and the University of Georgia (BBA, Finance).

Outside of Pilates, Maria stays busy balancing family and entrepreneurial life. Maria’s favorite job is being a mom of her young daughter. Maria enjoys learning, working out, dancing, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
