GLORIA GASPERI

Gloria Gasperi discovered Pilates in 1999 and has not stopped practicing since. Driven by her two passions—movement and education—she completed her Pilates training in Boston, Massachusetts, obtaining a Comprehensive Certification with Clare Dunphy (of Romana Kryzanowska’s lineage) at Pilates Progressive Bodyworks. She also holds a degree in Kinesiology with a specialization in Education. In 2012, Gloria began a collaboration with Vintage Pilates, an LA-based studio owned by Sandy Shimoda and directed by Jay Grimes- a direct student of Joseph Pilates. In 2013, she completed the highly regarded master program “The Work”- also under the mentorship of Jay Grimes. That same year, Gloria founded a teacher training school called Pilates E-motion, with the goal of empowering students with knowledge of the Method, and helping them hone and master their skills. Gloria has participated in seminars and workshops around the world, teaching in Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland and Italy.
