Pilates Studio

T: +49 (0) 8823 18-0


Pilates is much more than just the well-known exercises on the floor mat. 100 years ago, Joseph Pilates was already using spring resistance to train fellow prisoners in the internment camp in England during the First World War. A range of Pilates exercise devices evolved from these early experiments. The best known and most popular are the Reformer, the Cadillac and the Wunda Chair. Guests staying at Schloss Elmau can book an individual lesson by Dr. Imke König in the Pilates Studio and can train with the Reformer, the Cadillac and the Wunda Chair.

Individual lessons on the mat or in the studio can be booked at any time for a separate fee.
