Elaine is owner of Rhinebeck Pilates, and a third generation, certified Authentic Pilates teacher through the New York Pilates Studio®. Many pieces of original equipment from Joseph Pilates 8th Avenue Studio can be found within Rhinebeck Pilates, in addition to being fully equipped with Gratz apparatus. Elaine has studied pilates extensively over the past 21 years. She teaches daily in her Rhinebeck studio, both in person and virtually, and also taught at The New York Pilates Studio® in New York City for four years. She has taught mat classes at Jacob’s Pillow, the same place where Joseph Pilates famously taught his original mat classes. Together with Sean Gallagher, Elaine presents workshops based on Joseph Pilates’ original method and apparatus throughout the year. In 2018 Elaine worked along side with Sean Gallagher to help create the yearly conference at Jacob’s Pillow, Pilates at The Pillow™. They continue to host and teach this twice-yearly conference and that has been the first in the pilates community to present “lost” apparatus and original work, such as: The Lost Art of The Resister™, The Lost Art of the Ped-o-Pul™, and The Lost Art of the Bench Mat™. Elaine was thrilled to present The Lost Art of The Resister™ inside Joseph Pilates’ original Berkshires studio, (the property is owned by Sean Gallagher)- the first time a workshop had ever been presented within that historically significant location. Elaine enjoys researching pilates history and maintains a webpage devoted to openly sharing accurate pilates history titled: Pilates History Research Archive. Elaine can be found on Pilatesology teaching the Classical Pilates Push Up Device, Archival Ped-o-Pul, the Resister®, and along with Sean Gallagher, Joe’s Four Original Airplane Boards.
