HERE AT PILATES ISLAND STUDIO we take Pilates very seriously.
Our qualified staff members are all Certified Pilates Teachers. Sara Allegri is a Second Generation Pilates Master and Mentor Instructor certified by Lolita San Miguel who was certified by Joe Pilates himself. Joe Sopala is certified in Advanced Reformer, mat and TRX.
Sara also has been certified with the PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) and Jolita Trahan’s Pilates International Network.
We believe strongly that since science and understanding of the human body is constantly moving forward, so should we. We continuously take refresher courses to stay up to date with the latest developments in Pilates and related disciplines such as the Trigger Point technique, Bosu and TRX.
Over the last 15 years our primary Mentor, Sara Allegri, has taught this wonderful discipline around the globe including Spectrum Clubs of Los Angeles Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio Racquetball and Fitness Club Motherhood's Destination Maternity and Pilates Island Studio in Aosta Italy.
We are proud to say that we are keeping the spirit of Pilates alive in Texas in our wonderful Austin / Cedar Park based studio.
After passing the PMMP with Lolita San Miguel in Palm Beach and receiving her PMA certification in Valencia Spain, Sara is continuing education with BASI (Rael Izacowitz) in Chicago and Malaga. But her insatiable curiosity to fully understand what Joe Pilates himself had tapped into and left behind is never ending. Sara knew that Joe Pilates was a genius and had so much more to offer, so what better way to understand how he worked than by learning from those who learned from him: the Elders. Sara is taking refresher courses at the USPA (School of Romana Kryzanowska) and will be attending sessions with Jay Grimes in California. Both of these Elders were two of Joe’s beloved students and instructors who carry on his legacy to this day.
As you can imagine, we work with a wide range of people with a wide range of needs, varying from those suffering from Osteoporosis to people who simply want to stay in shape. And to add a little cardio to the venue Sara is also certified with the BOSU technique.
We use all the props from modern to classic Pilates such as fit balls, rollers softballs weight balls, elastic bands, magic circles, body circles, the Ladder Barrel, Spine Corrector, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Ped-O-Pull.
Sara also published a book called "Pilates: The Art of Muscle Toning” and 4 videos: "Pilates 360", “Pilates for Beginners”, “Pilates with the Magic Circle” and “Intermediate Pilates with the Magic Circle.”
It is a great honor and personal satisfaction sharing this wonderful discipline created so many years ago by such a special person: Joseph Pilates.
Thank you, Sara and Joe
