commitment is to the integrity of the Pilates Method as taught by
Joseph and Clara Pilates and the legacy that passes through
Kryzanowska. Tirado Pilates Apparatus is the standard in Pilates
After a June 2006 review of the Pilates Apparatus that Edgar
manufactures Romana approved his design criteria as adhering to the
traditional and original standards.
Edgar Tirado, founder of Tirado Pilates Apparatus and his studio,
The Work, Pilates in
Anderson, began studying the Pilates Method in Atlanta in 1997.
He was Certified by Romana Kryzanowska and was selected as a Level 4
Teacher Trainer with Romana’s Pilates but currently works
independently. He has worked to teach and maintain the integrity of
Pilates through his studio, his work as a Teacher Trainer, in the
teaching of seminars and workshops and in the manufacturing of this
complete line of Pilates Apparatus.
He has been making apparatus for his use and many other studios
since 1998 as seen in several pictures on our web site. We recently
have expanded to manufacture the complete line of apparatus.
Edgar’s wife and partner Joan Hamilton brings with her a varied
background in business and social services. She previously served as
director of The Pilates Studio of Atlanta, a Certifying Center. Joan
is dedicated to the expansion of Tirado Pilates Apparatus. She works
in organization, promotion and customer service.
Peter Fiasca, founder of
Classical Pilates is a friend and mentor and we value his input
and promotion of our Traditional Pilates Apparatus.
We encourage you to come have a session in
our studio in South Carolina and experience Tirado Pilates
