When opening Mauro Pilates, owner Liana Mauro, had a vision to be a different kind of Pilates studio. But how?
She started by establishing Mauro Pilates as the first location in Austin to offer Pilates on the “contemporary” STOTT PILATES® equipment. What makes this type of equipment so special? STOTT PILATES® equipment is much more versatile making it easier to adjust for common problem areas like tight hip flexors and tense neck/shoulders. It is also much more accessible for athletes because it has the ability to provide increased range of motion for the shoulder girdle, has many more options for standing on the equipment, and has options that make it possible to simultaneously include multiple major muscle groups. That’s why Liana uses STOTT PILATES® V2Max Plus Reformers, equipment that provides increased range of motion and are known as the optimal tools for Pilates based sport-specific, rehab and cross-training movement. Other available equipment include the STOTT PILATES® Stability Chair, STOTT PILATES® Jumpboard and Cardio-Tramp, STOTT PILATES® Arc Barrel, STOTT PILATES® Stability Cushions, and other small props.
Once establishing her business as having unique equipment, Liana began expanding into additional areas of speciality. Not only are private and group options available, Mauro Pilates offers private and group Barre workouts, Pilates/Barre combo classes, Paddle Pilates (yes – Pilates on the water!), Pilates for Triathletes, Pilates as Rehab/Injury Prevention, and Pilates for Kids.
Working with everyone – from children to elite athletes – Mauro Pilates provides an array of Pilates services specifically targeting the following specialties: injury rehabilitation, weight loss, fitness, and general lifestyle betterment.
All the instructors at Mauro Pilates are dedicated to creating accessible, unique, and fun ways to share the benefit of Pilates with as many people as possible.
