Our Practice

ÀligaPilates, located near Plaça Francesc Macià in Barcelona, is a fully equipped Pilates studio offering personalized classes in Authentic Pilates Instruction. Our Professionals design one-on-one classes following the needs of each client using all the apparatus created by Joseph Pilates.

We follow the level demanded and maintained by first-generation teachers of Joseph Pilates and have studied extensively with master instructor Fabien Menegon, who trained directly with Joseph Pilates’ primary disciple Romana Kryzanowska. 

What is Authentic Pilates?

Today it is common to hear the terms "Pilates Mat", "Pilates Reformer" or "Pilates with machines" as if there were different and isolated types of Pilates... and such a thing does not exist.

In Authentic Pilates everything is integrated, the exercises of each apparatus are related to each other and act synergistically as part of the same method. They are tools that we use so that each person achieves the maximum physical evolution according to their needs.

The Authentic Pilates Method is the brand that defines the most faithful practice to the original method designed by Joseph Pilates, as is currently taught in New York City.
