Back when The Pilates Center opened its doors in 1990, there was so much possibility and opportunity as there really was no Pilates landscape then. Boulder was the perfect location for sisters and founders, Amy and Rachel, to open up the studio.

The Pilates Center Mentoring Program is a unique and personal opportunity for professional Pilates instructors to study with second generation Master Teachers and The Pilates Center owners, Rachel Taylor Segel and Amy Taylor Alpers. Mentoring is also available with senior instructor Debora Kolwey.

“A great teacher is more interested in what the student has to say than what she has to say.
Mentoring is about reflecting back.
Once you are drawn to finding a teacher you are closer than you might realize to uncovering your own answers.
