Weekend Immersion Revives Pilates’ Original Work: September 28-30

Pilates at The Pillow: The New Science and Lost Art of Joe’s Work

Pilates may be all the rage today, but it was created a hundred years ago. In fact, some of Joseph Pilates’ work hasn’t been taught since he died in 1967. But two local Pilates notables have decided to change that.

Sean Gallagher, owner of The New York Pilates Studio, and Elaine Ewing, owner of Rhinebeck Pilates, are leading a weekend immersion course that will explore the past, present and future of Pilates, and reintroduce work that has been unexplored for half a century. Pilates at The Pillow: The New Science and Lost Art of Joe’s Work, will be held the weekend of September 28-30 at Jacob’s Pillow, located at 358 George Carter Road, in Beckett, Massachusetts.

“The true meaning and depth of Pilates is slowly getting lost through the fad trend it has taken,” says Terianne Neden, manager and teacher at Rhinebeck Pilates. “This immersion course gives participants a chance to gain a deeper understanding of the authentic Pilates method and how it is viable in its true form toda. It will be an exciting and fun event for expanding one’s knowledge of the art and science of Joseph Pilates’ original work.”

The cost is $1,100 for the weekend, and space is limited. Those who are interested must apply by visiting Rhinebeck Pilates on Facebook or visiting and clicking on the Workshops tab.
