What a year! New Pilates classes, new teachers, new teacher training courses in New Zealand, new events, new countries… Here are some snapshots of the previous year… behind the scenes of happenings at Core Pilates NYC!
Co-founder Kim Villanueva traveled to New Zealand to lead Core’s second year of teacher certification at Abundance Pilates studio. She worked closely with Allyson Donnelly, pictured here with her baby and apprentices, who, under Kim’s tutelage, became Core faculty.
The best New York City Pilates instructors… Core’s very own, got their very own photo shoot! Here, the one and only Shawn Merchant delivers the most artistic shots to date!
Co-founder Michelle Fama visits sister Pilates studio owners, Dominic Pereira and Louise Knoop of Body Control Pilates in Cape Town, South Africa. In between workouts, a little wine tasting!
Outside of Cape Town’s Body Control Pilates, clients wait for the city’s best Pilates classes. A great exchange of learning happened on this visit!
CPNYC Instructors and video/photo shoot models have the fingers on the pulse, sending tweets of the days shoot in the studio. Not a bad Kraft food table either!
Senior instructor and Core’s Pilates teacher training and educational director, Sarah Ruback gets mic’d up on set of yet another video shoot for a series of 70 “How to Do Pilates” videos for Howcast. What a fun shoot!
New paint job. New decor. New signage. Don’t ask how long it took to line up each individual letter properly for our new chrome masterpiece.
Co-founder Kim Villaneva leads studious apprentices during an intensive weekend of teacher training during our Comprehensive Pilates Certification Course. Camera’s were on for our first over livestream broadcast.
Our Prenatal Pilates blogger, Rachel Ortense keeps writing even after her second baby.
And then there is Hugo… this is what might go down at any given time during class when Mr. Hugo is in the studio.
And Mr. Hugo… AGAIN. Models and apprentices lighten up during an intensive shooting and teacher training day in the studio.
The loyal fan base grows… some would say that Dan Weltner’s Pilates classes cause reactions reminiscent of the Beatles mania. We love this clients enthusiasm with her custom made t-shirt!
