Pat Guyton & Kevin Bowen ~ If Joe Pilates only knew...
In this episode, we’re going to hear from two very influential Pilates educators, Pat Guyton and Kevin Bowen. You may recall from last season listening to the wonderful Pat Guyton and if you’ve been following me for a few years, you might have heard my radio interview with Kevin Bowen on KPCA-Petaluma. Pat and Kevin have known and worked with each other ever since Kevin founded the Pilates Method Alliance in 2000. And both of my guests have gone on to teach and mentor Pilates teachers around the globe leaving lasting impressions on all of their students. This interview may be somewhat provocative because we’ll be touching on the unrest surrounding the PMA, little known tidbits about the First generation teachers, and the current state of our Pilates community.About Darien Gold ~  https://www.dariengold.com Music credits ~ Instagram: @theotherjohnmayer - Email: mayerranchrecordings@gmail.comBecome a show supporter! https://www.buzzsprout.com/332675/supporters/newAbout Pat Guyton ~  https://patguytonpilates.comPat is the founder and owner of Pilates Conservatory®, which offers mentorship programs, continuing education and a comprehensive teacher training program.

Roberta Gratz ~ Co-Owner of Gratz Industries (Rebroadcast, 2018)

Roberta Gratz ~ Co-Owner of Gratz Industries (Rebroadcast, 2018)
My guest today is Roberta Gratz, co-owner of Gratz Industries and wife of the late Donald Gratz, whose father Frank along with a business partner opened a custom metal fabrication business Treitel/Gratz in New York City in the 1920’s. When Mr. Tretial moved on, Frank renamed the business Gratz Industries, Inc. and continued to fabricate sculptures, metal furniture and produce industrial design prototypes for many of the worlds top designers. Donald, Frank’s younger son joined his father after finishing college and a stint in the Army.  At one point in the mid 1960’s one aspect of their metal furniture business began to slow down leaving room for a unique but untested type of business. On a serendipitous afternoon in 1968, Donald while delivering a metal furniture piece to one of his customers met Romana Kryzanowska at his customer’s home. Romana had needed a manufacturer for her apparatus as more and more teachers were arriving at her studio eager to learn Pilates from her and then needing apparatus to work on at home. It was this fortuitous meeting with Romana that opened a new line of business for Gratz Industries, located at that time in Long Island City, Queens - it was the birth of classical Pilates apparatus.
