Elaine is a third generation, certified Authentic Pilates teacher through the New York Pilates Studio®. She owns Rhinebeck Pilates, a fully equipped studio located in historic Rhinebeck, NY, about 1.5 hours north of NYC. Many pieces of original equipment from Joseph Pilates 8th Avenue Studio can be found within Rhinebeck Pilates, and they are well cared for, maintained, and still in use today.
Elaine teaches daily in her Rhinebeck studio, and also taught at The New York Pilates Studio® in New York City for four years. She has also 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 September 2018 Elaine worked alongside 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, which was the first time a workshop had ever been presented within that historically significant location.
