was the very first pupil of Joseph Pilates to open her own Studio in New York City, with his special blessing to carry on his work. Carola taught countless students for over 30 years, and trained many Pilates teachers. On this DVD, learn how she came to meet Joe, and how her own teaching and special approach to the work evolved. Shot in Tarzana, Calfiornia in 1989 after her retirement in 1988, this rare footage of Carola in action is all that we have left of her tremendous contribution to Pilates' legacy.
