In January 2017, Rhinebeck Pilates will begin a new round of Pilates teacher training led by Jennifer DeLuca, who received her certification under Romana Kyzanowska, a protégé of Joseph Pilates. Apprentice teachers will learn the beginner and intermediate classical Pilates systems on the full range of apparatus—Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chairs, Barrels and Magic Circles. “Our studio features Gratz equipment, well known to be the highest-quality equipment in the business and the most classical in design,” says Elaine Ewing, owner of Rhinebeck Pilates.

This 500-hour certification consists of beginner and intermediate system seminar weekends, observation, practice teaching, lessons and self-practice hours, with an additional option to take the advanced training seminar. The training ends with a final test. “Once completed, teachers will earn a certificate to allow them to teach classical Pilates at Rhinebeck Pilates as well as any other studio,” Ewing says. “Those who have completed the program are teaching at studios in Rhinebeck, Glens Falls, New York City and around the world.” 

Rhinebeck Pilates has been bringing classical Pilates to the Hudson Valley since 2003. “We are the only studio in the Hudson Valley area to be truly fully equipped, including a few rare apparatus such as the Arm Chair and the Guillotine,” Ewing says. “All our teachers are fully certified and qualified to teach a wide range of people.” Group classes and private sessions are available seven days a week.

Rhinebeck Pilates is located at 6400 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck. For more info, call 945.876.5686, email [email protected] or visit
