Sandy Shimoda is a world-renowned teacher and the owner of Vintage Pilates. The L.A. company that returns to Joe Pilates’ original training method under the leadership of its director, Jay Grimes. Vintage Pilates was founded in 2010 and Sandy has enjoyed growing the business from a physical studio to an online Pilates centre offering private lessons, classes and continuing education programmes. She continues to teach in person and organizes ongoing education events at her Pop-Up studios in Mar Vista and Honolulu.

Sandy has been teaching movement for over 30 years, is certified by Romana Krzyowska and has been a private client of Jay Grimes for almost 20 years. Her favorite parts of her job are seeing her regular clients move and feel better, helping teachers better understand Joe’s work, and guiding studio owners to success in their businesses. Sandy has appeared in videos for Classical Pilates and Gaiam. She has been featured in Pilates Style, Pilatesglossy.com, VoyageLA and teaches online through Pilatesology.com and The Pilates Link.

Prices and workshops were refined, in consultation Sandy and the knowledge of the Belgian Pilates world. PILATELS Fact: Add in your flight to the States (€1,000) and your stay in a mediocre AirB&B (€1,000 and a $7.50 latte) and you quickly realize how lucky we are to have Sandy coming to us!

I had the honor of apprenticing with Sandy & Jay Grimes & training with the fantastic Vintage team in LA as one of the 12 selected students of The Work 2016!

Memories & a never to forget experience!!!

I try to train every year with Sandy & co Vintage in LA (soon in Hawaii ;-)) & take online privates with Sandy on a regular basis. So it is an honor that Sandy comes to Pilatels to train my students!


Classical Pilates is more than a repertoire of exercises. It is a unique exercise system that combines mind and body under the guidance of a teacher who has the knowledge, skill and intuition to bring one’s body into better balance. The best Pilates instructors not only possess these qualities, but also teach organically with a keen eye, their hands for proper placement and positioning, and concise verbal cues to teach a system tailored to individual needs.

Know that Sandy “breathes Jay Grimes” and passes on his experience pure nature as she learned it from him! Vintage ‘The Work’ is known for using very plain language in a logical ‘simple’ way and above all guiding and refining at the right time. Terms like Round & arches, Connections, Two Way Stretch, Lengthening from & into your center, and so much more ….


WS 1 | Work from & into your Center
WS 2 | Two-way-stretch
WS 3 | Rolls & Arches
WS 4 | Flow & Transitions
WS 5 | Using All Your Equipment
WS 6 | Choosing the right exercises

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Each Workshop is much more effective in combination with all the other Workshops.
