A Classical Pilates Studio
*Instructor approval required for all classes above the
Pilates was brought to Atlanta in 1996 to a small studio inside the Atlanta Ballet Center for Dance Education where owner Robin Warden Blum became the first certified Pilates instructor in Georgia. She was trained and certified by Master Teacher Romana Kryzanowska, the direct successor and protégé of Joseph Pilates. Body Central opened it’s doors three years later as the premier Pilates studio in Atlanta, and one of the biggest and most equipped in the southeast. After changing ownership in 2004, Robin was brought on as director and part owner. Robin became full owner in 2010.
Body central is dedicated to the health of each client, and provides the highest quality of instruction by certified trainers. All of our instructors have been trained by Romana and/or the teacher trainers under her direct guidance. Each instructor has successfully completed a rigorous 600 hour apprenticeship in which they have learned to modify the exercises to fit any body type, condition, and injury. All instructors are required to continue their education through professional workshops and seminars each year. Body central is proud to be one of few Pilates studios in Atlanta that offers workshops and seminars for certified instructors, and the only fully equipped Pilates studio in Buckhead. It is our mission to continue the teachings of Romana and preserve the method to it’s purest form, the way Joseph Pilates intended it.
