About This Event
Park East Pilates has been keeping the Upper East Side walking tall for 15 years. Athletes and beginners alike flock to our studio to experience a workout that’s effective and energizing. The reason for our success? Every one of our extensively trained instructors is dedicated to authentic Pilates, the method that’s been proven since 1926 to make you taller, leaner, longer and stronger.
Exclusively for our friends at Athleta, we’ll teach our incredible classic Pilates mat with step-by-step instructions for maximum results in minimum time. Best of all, when you leave the store and head to brunch, you’ll be armed with a workout you can take on the road, no equipment required.
Get the experience of a private session in a small class setting with a workout that’s safe and tailored to your body’s needs. Tell your teacher your aches and pains before class starts, and wear what makes you feel best! (Socks are recommended). Mats will be provided by Athleta.
About The Instructors
Sharyl M. Curry, Founder & Principal Instructor
Born and raised in Germany, Sharyl has worked and lived in NYC since 1995. After attending The Ailey School Professional Division from 1995 - 1998, Sharyl earned certification at The Pilates Studio under the guidance of Romana Kryzanowska in 1999 and founded Park East Pilates a year later. She is Pilates Guild certified. Sharyl studied Philosophy at Hunter College from 2004 to 2006. From this experience she designed the studio’s environment to foster a collaborative exchange of knowledge, and developed its practice to strengthen the clear lines of physiological connectivity.
Annie Rodriguez, Senior Instructor
Annie Rodriguez hails from the Blueridge Mountains of Virginia where she started dancing just as soon as she could walk. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she studied ballet and environmental studies but eventually discovered her true passions for African dance and human geography. She then spent her formative years dancing professionally and working as a paralegal before moving to NYC to pursue her Master's in Africana Studies and Dance at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU. Splitting her time between Brooklyn and Guinea, West Africa, Annie co-directed an international African dance workshop in Conakry, started a cultural arts nonprofit, and deepened her knowledge of Guinean dance, which she has brought to her work as a barre and dance fitness instructor ever since. She is certified in Romana's Pilates through True Pilates New York and loves nothing more than helping clients change their bodies and feel wonderful from their movement practice. When not dancing or teaching, Annie can be found cooking, listening to music, and eating spicy things.
