This book, by Cathy Strack with research by Carol J. Craig, will explore and describe the lives of all the known first generation Pilates teachers that were taught and trained by Joseph and Clara Pilates.

Mary Bowen, Kathy Grant, Ron Fletcher, Eve Gentry, and Lolita San Miguel are known to most devotees of the Pilates method. But are those their given names? And what about Helene Drusine, Lawrence Hayward, Bruce King, Bob Seed, Sonje Mayo, and John Winters?

Why was Carola Trier able to manage her own studio while Joe was still alive, when others weren’t so lucky?

Who were Jerome Andrews, Delores Corey, and Robert (don’t call him Bob) Fitzgerald?

Was Mary Pilates the only relative to study with her Aunt Clara and Uncle Joe?

What happened to Hanna, the assistant that lived and worked at the studio?

Just how old is Jay Grimes?

Stay tuned for the answers to these questions and a few other surprises. Expected release date late 2022.
