Clara Pilates

Clara Pilates was Joseph Pilates' wife and partner at their New York studio. They met on the boat en route to the U. S. after the war.

With a background in nursing and teaching, she was an asset to Joseph in developing the exercise system and studio business. She continued to run the Pilates Studio™ for years after Joseph's death, passing the reigns to Romana Kryzanowska when she retired. Clara Pilates died in 1977.
