Using your mat at Pilates at The Pillow(™):

An especially exciting feature about this unique conference is the location and how it historically relates to the matwork. The conference will take place in 2 locations: Jacob’s Pillow and Joseph Pilates original Berkshires property and studio. It was in these locations that Joseph Pilates famously taught and practiced his matwork in group classes and private lesson respectively. In fact, he also documented himself demonstrating matwork on the foldable mat that Elena Bartley’s is based on!

Attendees can use their mats at the conference during any of the following events:

  • Pilates 34 in 34™️ (the daily mat class taught by Sean Gallagher based on dancer’s notes from Joe’s class at Jacob’s Pillow)
  • “Return to Life on The Mat: The Lost Art of Joe’s Original Intent” (3-hour workshop with Maria Vorrias on the matwork from Return to Life and Joe’s original hands-on assists).
  • photos* and personal practice using the mat in the Jacob’s Pillow Tea Garden, the same place Joe famously taught his mat classes (weather permitting)

 *Attendees are welcome to photograph themselves using their mat at Jacob’s Pillow following along with the order of Joe’s “10 Point Physical Fitness Test” replica poster that will be for sale at the conference. 

How to order:
Contact Elaine Ewing at to arrange your order if you’d like it delivered to Pilates at The Pillow.
10% of sales automatically go towards the restoration of Joe’s original Berkshires studio.

If you purchase the mat for use at the pillow you are responsible for taking it with you after the conference, we will not be able to help you ship it. You can speak with Elena about how you can check it as baggage if you’re flying.
