Carola's Cadillac

8 mins - Special


In this Special, Jillian Hessel shows us the Cadillac that was passed down to her by her mentor, Carola Trier. This Cadillac was built for Carola under Joseph Pilates' supervision when she opened her own studio in 1960. Jillian shows us features that are different from current models of the Cadillac including the original Trapeze Bar, and solid brass Push Through Bar, and more. What a treat it is to see this piece of history!
