IT'S NOT JUST PILATES IT'S HEALTH
Zarhcos, a Pilates Studio, was founded by Jose A. Ruiz Carreton, a Second Generation Pilates Instructor.
In 2004, Zarhcos opened his first Pilates studio in New York.
In 2002, Jose enrolls at Drago's Gym as an independent student of Romana Kryzanowska (a client/pupil of Joseph Hubertus Pilates). The next year, Romana started her well-known Pilates Certification Program.
When Jose eventually received his certification and started teaching with his instructors, Edwina Fontaine, Jerome Weinberg, Sari Mejia (Romana K. daughter), and Cynthia Shipley, Romana established her famous Pilates Certification Program at Drago's Gym the same year. For more than 6 years, he worked at Drago's Gym.
Jose contributed to Peter Fiasca's "Voices of Classical Pilates" epilogue.
In 2013, he started working at the same Pilates studio as Bob Likens.
Second Generation Pilates instructors have received certification from Elder Romana Kryzaonowaska.
TESTIMONIALS FROM SOME OF OUR CLIENTS
"Breath through the movement"
Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
When I started taking Pilates classes it was simply to workout-what I learned was a new way to use and communicate with my body. Jose's style of teaching is gentle, thorough and detailed. He helps you to learn the intricacies of how to complete the Pilates movements correctly and safely while still allowing for progression and growth. Not only have I healed injuries and become more flexible than I ever thought possible, I now understand how to use and organize my body in the most powerful way. Jose pushes you to test your body and see what it is capable of while still honoring limits. Zarhcos Pilates is a beautiful, modern and comfortable studio that has become my happy place. Starting Pilates at Zarhcos and learning from Jose has been humbling, empowering, a little scary and yet beautiful all at the same time. Pilates has changed my life and I intend to dedicate a lot of energy and time into learning and absorbing as much information from Jose as I can, for many many years to come.
