Washington Ave Pilates
Welcome to WAPilates. Our goal began with a desire to provide a personal and individualized Traditional Pilates workout for our clients. The studio is known for our boutique style of teaching Traditional Pilates. Teaching Joseph Pilates philosophies, concepts and intentions.
WAPilates is the first Pilates studio in Houston to be fully Gratz equipped, the original manufacturer of Pilates machines. Owner, Hilary Opheim, realized the need for a studio to offer authentic, traditional Pilates training as in the days of Joe and Clara. Even the classes at WAP are kept small and intimate to keep the focus on each student and to take them where their body and ability can go.
While other facilities offer mat-only classes, or reformer-based workouts, or modern/contemporary takes on Pilates, WAPilates provides you with the full Pilates experience as it was created and intended by its founder, Joseph Pilates.
WAP's Teaching philosophy is "as Joseph intended". Click here to find out more!
"WAPilates is set apart by our complete set of apparatus, our Comprehensive Teacher Training Program and our dedication to preserving the art and science of Contrology, or as known now Pilates. We believe Pilates is a movement of the body, mind and spirit." Hilary Opheim
WAPilates is a PSAP Approved School
