Pilates Academy Opens its First Studio in Dubai

DUBAI, UAE, 7 September 2015 – Pilates Academy, an independent and unique studio, has announced the opening of the first exclusive authorized Cardiolates® School in the Middle East. The studio, located in JLT Dubai, will offer full Pilates equipment courses and Cardiolates® classes, as well as comprehensive Pilates professional training and workshops, which are certified by the worldwide academic network of the Pilates Academy International (P.A.I.) School of New York.


Cloè Sommadossi, owner of Pilates Academy and Master Trainer, said: “Pilates Academy brings to Dubai a new and exclusive concept of Pilates Studio, not just thanks to the relaxing atmosphere, but mainly because of the quality of its training. Exercising at Pilates Academy doesn’t only mean efficient workout on the best American dedicated equipment, but also learning a full new discipline and its principles, experiencing the tailored attention of a professional and qualified trainer, and walking out knowing how to take care of one’s own body”.

The studio will offer classes such as Pilates Matwork, Pilates Equipment and Cardiolates®, an exciting exercise program which combines the cardio- vascular and physiological benefits of Rebounding with the core strengthening and alignment principles of Pilates.

At Pilates Academy the application of Pilates principles helps increase the corporal awareness and perception, and brings to experience the results of a clever and customized physical training throughout the complete discipline’s workout. Every session is specifically adapted to the body of the client, so no more than 3 people can exercise together on the Pilates Equipment, while for Matwork and Cardiolates® classes no more than 5 people are accepted at once. If need be, professional nutritional assistance is provided as dietary hygiene is a major component of health and wellbeing.


The studio also offers rehabilitation sessions after injuries, accidents or orthopedic treatments, corporate postural programs and physical education for teenagers, as well as Post-Partum programs targeting the rehabilitation of the pelvic floor.

“Our objective is to develop health, teach body awareness, assist local sport professionals with a highly qualified physical training complement and the local orthopedic clinics with an internationally medically recognized post-rehabilitation service and support. Pilates Academy aims to bring a new and different highly qualified training concept to the UAE”, added Cloè Sommadossi.


Classes can be done in English, French and Italian and are open to both men and women, with no age restrictions. The studio is open from 8am-9pm, Sunday to Thursday, and from 9am-2pm on Fridays. It is located in JLT, Cluster X, Jumeirah Bay X2 Tower, Suite 4202, within walking distance from Damac Properties Metro Station. Free 3 hours parking is also available.
