By Michele Larsson

Pilates instructor Michele Larsson has practiced the Pilates technique for 37 years, learning much of the work in sessions with first-generation instructor Eve Gentry. Larsson has spent much of her career preserving Gentry’s rehabilitative style of Pilates: She founded Core Dynamics Pilates and operates a teacher training program in Santa Fe and many other satellite locations. Larsson also teaches workshops internationally and at conferences. In this article she recalls her work with Gentry, as well as the first-generation instructor’s interest in working with young students.

Eve Gentry teaching PilatesEve Gentry, 1909-1994, is often remembered as a Pilates instructor who taught at Joe Pilates’s New York City studio and New York University School of the Arts before retiring to Santa Fe, New Mexico. But Eve, a trained dancer, also taught dance In New York at the YM/YWHA, The High School of Performing Arts, and at The New Dance Group and performed with Hanya Holm and her own Eve Gentry Dance Company until 1968. Like many of her peers, this first-generation was strongly influenced by both dance and Pilates.

After moving to Santa Fe in 1969, Eve opened a dance studio and a Pilates studio, the latter located underneath her garage. She began teaching teen dance classes and formed The Dancers Workshop with her most serious students. These students were also invited into her home studio, where she taught them Pilates on the equipment: Reformer, Wunda Chair, Mat, Spine Corrector, Ped-O-Pull and Magic Circle. This group of students was younger than most contemporary Pilates practitioners, but Eve felt that these years were pivotal for instilling good movement habits.

In the summer of 1970, I began studying with Eve, who first introduced me to Pilates. I was dancing in San Francisco during the rest of the year, so Eve concentrated on teaching me the mat work. In 1973 she asked me to run her dance studio for the summer. As part of her dance curriculum Eve included Pilates exercises to strengthen and discipline the body. I taught Eve’s classes according to her instruction, Pilates floor exercises, standing dance barre, traveling combinations and improvisation. Unfortunately, my main memory of the summer is that one of her students came down with bubonic plague, or Black Death. The shock of that overshadowed the classes I taught. However, a couple our students do remember the experience.

The students had three dance classes a week. Each class began with Pilates mat work; Pelvic tilts, the Hundred, Single and Double Leg Stretch, Leg Circles, Swan and Side Kick. The students taught at the studio beneath her garage were treated to a circuit class—mat, Chair, ring...
