Joseph H. Pilates (1880-1967) is the founder of the Pilates Studio and creator of the Pilates Method, which he called Contrology. A revolutionary figure in fitness, he was one of the first to use outcome studies to prove his methods worked as well as one of the first to use "before and after" photographs to document his work. His method has been used extensively by professional dancers in their fitness program for over 50 years and today is used by many in entertainment, sports and the arts.
Sean P. Gallagher, P.T., is the current director of the Pilates Studio and a physical therapist, working regularly with the Pennsylvania Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Sesame Street Live and Six Flags Amusement Park.
Romana Kryzanowska is the official senior instructor of the Pilates Method worldwide. She has devoted her life to the study of the method and was designated Pilates' successor in promoting his work before his death in 1967.
