Bye Bye Beta!

August 8, 2016

Concluding the public beta for Pilates Avatar!

Thanks for being patient as we worked to develop the best audio Pilates experience possible for all of you. We’ve learned & evolved, and are ready to introduce Pilates Avatar to the world. Along with the end of the public beta come some exciting developments:

Simpler & Streaming-Only

First, moving forward, all of our workouts will be streaming-only. Previously purchased downloads will continue to work as always. New purchases, however, will only be available through our new streaming service. This means Pilates Avatar lessons won’t take up valuable space on your smart phone or tablet, and you can still access them anywhere you have an internet connection. And best of all, you’ll never have to mess with iTunes again to sync workouts to your phone.

Pilates Avatar on Your iPad!

This has been a request by many of you and we’re proud to roll out official support for streaming Pilates Avatar directly on your iPad. Just log into on your iPad as usual, tap “My Workouts” and you're good to go.

Lists Now Accessible to Everyone

Additionally, to help you make the best decisions for your lifestyle and workout needs, we have now made the exercise lists for all workouts public. That means you can see a breakdown of the exercises included in every lesson before you purchase. Now, you will have more helpful information you need to pick the best workout for you.

We hope these changes will better serve you as you work toward your fitness goals. 

Track your progress on social media, and be sure to tag #PilatesAvatar in your posts.To keep up with all of the new developments at Pilates Avatar, including new features, promotions and helpful tips, be sure to join us on social media.

It’s the Height of Summer!

August 8, 2016

We're now officially in the thickest part of summer, and there is no better way to soak it in than to get outdoors. Everything slows down now, leaving you time to work on your fitness goals.

One great feature of Pilates Avatar is you can take the lessons with you anywhere. We're an audio program.  There’s no need to be cooped up inside a studio. With longer, warmer days, head outside and feel the grass between your toes as you perfect a pose. Pilates Avatar offers several workouts of varying lengths where all you need is a mat. Grab a matand your smartphone or tablet, and make your favorite park a pilates studio for the day. 

Summer is the time to rededicate yourself to fitness and set objectives for the remainder of the year. Pilates Avatar wants to support your goals.

Pilates Day 2016:  Pilates Prince Tribute

May 5, 2016

I love Pilates Day!  Thank you PMA for intiating this community building event each year to bring Pilates out into our communities.  These last few years when I am teaching a 4-day intensive at Pilates Erlangen (Germany) we like to add our spirit to the Pilates Day event.  This year, I decided to make our group video a Tribute to our fallen brother Prince.  We love you Prince, thank you for bearing your soul through your musical genius.

Pilates Avatar Directly on Your Smartphone!

March 11, 2016

Today we’re announcing a major update to Pilates Avatar!

We started Pilates Avatar to empower you to become more independent with your practice. And while we built something you could download onto your smartphone and take with you, we knew we could make the mobile experience more streamlined. 

Starting today, you'll be taken to an upgraded experience optimized for mobile devices, where you can access all your workouts without having to download, sync, or mess with iTunes.

Watch the Screencast

We made a video so you can see all the new features in action, or read on so you can learn about what to look for:

Just log into on your smartphone’s web browser then tap on the circular user icon in the upper right corner of your screen. After you enter your username and password, you’ll be taken to your Workouts page where you’ll see all your workouts listed. 

Tap on the workout you want and be taken to that Workout page where you’ll be able to play the audio file immediately without having to download anything. Scroll down to see the exercises listed with a play button for each video snap.  At the very bottom of the page we kept a pdf of the exercise list in case you prefer that format.

Another great feature for playing the audio is the rewind/fast forward function which is as simple as a finger swipe around the inner circle.

We are excited about these new improvements making your Pilates Avatar experience much more streamlined and easy!

New Tools in the Studio Kit

December 16, 2015

We’ve got exciting additions for authorized studio owners!

First off, we’re always committed to empowering you, our studio owners with the best tools to keep your students engaging with Pilates Avatar. Now you have an even richer set of tools to make that happen.

Not Yet A​uthorized?

Don’t miss out on all the fun! Make Pilates Avatar a smart business strategy at your studio so you can:

• Monetize unused apparatus without interrupting current class schedules.
• Book more lessons as your students advance in the programs.
• Gain referrals when news spreads that their studio is offering the Pilates Avatar program.
• Expand your studio offerings.
• Improve your SEO with our studio directory that links to your website and social media.

Learn How Your Studio Can Profit


To begin, you’ll need a way to promote Pilates Avatar on your digital properties like your website, e-newsletters, and social media. We’ve created 2 versions of a banner for you to help spread the word, designed to work on either a light or dark background.


Next, you’ll want something physical to hand out. That’s where the postcard comes in. The promo code encourages new students to try Pilates Avatar. Put them in high traffic areas to serve as conversation starters — or take some with you to conferences and networking events!

RX Pad

When you want to recommend specific programs for a student, grab a copy of the prescription pad and check off the ones you think will work best for them. 

Better Performance for Video Snaps

Previously, we gave you a big grid of all videos, causing some browsers to crash — we realize now it was not a good way to browse them; we’ve since changed it to a simple list so you only load one video at a time, speeding things for you.

Lastly — we’ve reordered the tools to make more sense, with the ones you need to launch first (Implementation Guide and Instructor Guide), then to promote (Banner and Postcard), ending with the tactical tools (Exercise Lists, Prescription Pad, Video Snaps).

Ready to check out all the fresh updates? Log in now — we can't wait to hear what you think! As always, please let us know your feedback at
