About The Studio


Based in Sarasota, Florida, Gadar Pilates is the first (and only) 100% fully equipped Pilates studio in Sarasota, Florida. From the tiny 5-inch Toe Corrector apparatus all the way to the 6 ½ foot tall Cadillac apparatus, the studio features the very best in Gratz brand equipment. In addition to the Reformer, Cadillac, Barrels, Chairs, Ped-O-Pul, and Swedish Bars, Gadar Pilates is proud to be the only studio in Sarasota, Florida equipped with a Guillotine (a.k.a. Tower in a Doorway), and is the only Pilates studio to have a reproduction of Joseph Pilates’ Archival Weighted Shoes using authentic vintage shoe plates made from weighted metal. In addition to in-studio lessons, Gadar Pilates offers virtual lessons on Zoom.

Mission Statement

As a second-generation certified Pilates instructor, I can assure you that you will receive Pilates instruction in its purest form, as Joseph Pilates taught it to Romana Kryzanowska, and as she taught it to me. My goal is to preserve the integrity of Joseph Pilates’ original vision of physical and mental conditioning while constructing creative workouts tailored to the individual. –Christina Maria Gadar
