How to Open a Pilates Business at Home

Jessie Zalla at her home studio in Brooklyn, NY

By Nicole Rogers

At a Pilates workshop in New York recently, I listened as Kathy Grant recounted stories of her training at the studios of Carola Trier and Joseph Pilates. Suddenly I realized that Grant, Trier and Mr. Pilates himself all had home studios. After all, they lived in New York, so space was limited; and Pilates wasn’t intended to be a big moneymaker. For the last decade though, Pilates has gained notoriety and popularity, inspiring large studios all over the country. But many Pilates instructors, for a variety of reasons, still teach at home to a small and loyal following, steps from their kitchens and bedrooms. A few such instructors offered their insight and advice for anyone interested running a Pilates business from home.
