Joseph Pilates

Classically modern, always authentic.

RISE: Authentic Pilates is fully dedicated to the Classical Pilates method developed by Joe Pilates. We specialize in teaching with Gratz and Pilates Designs equipment, the original manufacturers of Pilates apparatus and the industry’s established sources of authentic equipment.

When I met Meagan Koehler, I knew someone special had just entered my life. As I watched her work and watched her learn at the Classical Pilates Conference in Chicago my original feelings were confirmed. She has an openness of both mind and heart. Meagan has a loyalty and dedication to everything she does from her love and care for her friends and family, to her students, to the Pilates method and her continued studies. I have had the privilege to be part of her Pilates journey and I know any student of hers will find that all her special qualities make her an amazing teacher and woman.
