Carola Trier (who passed away at the age of 87 in October 2000), was one of Joseph Pilates’ most revered students — and she was the first teacher trained by him to open a studio of her own, in 1960. For years, she operated her studio from her Manhattan apartment, converting the seven-room space into what Dance Magazine called “a hybrid gymnasium/machine shop.”
Born in Germany in 1913, Trier was performing publicly as a contortionist and roller skater before her 12th birthday. Upon receiving her diploma from the Folkwang School in Essen, she toured Germany and France with professional cabaret acts. Following World War II, Trier came to the U.S. to continue her career. After a devastating knee injury, friends referred her to Joseph Pilates — and thus began her second career as a fitness instructor.
