thoughtful + INVENTIVE + caring + body-awareness

Adam Gauzza came to Pilates as a professional contemporary dancer.  After seeing improvements in strength, alignment, flexibility, and body awareness, he was hooked.  Adam completed his full certification at the Kane School at Kinected Pilates Studio where the focus is on classical principles and choreography of Pilates combined with a contemporary, clinical perspective on the body.  He works on cultivating form, efficiency, and fun to create challenging and rehabilitative workouts.  Adam received his BA from Northwestern University and has been dancing professionally since 2009 with a variety of companies in New York and Chicago including Grammy award-winning band Arcade Fire, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Carolyn Dorfman Dance, Company XIV, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.  In addition to Pilates, his movement practices include ballet and modern dance, yoga, and Feldenkrais.

As a long time client at Uptown Studios, I want to compliment Adam on his ability to always keep me mindfully aware in all his classes whether 1:1 or in a group class.

Adam has the unique ability to keep everyone engaged when he’s teaching so that we’re attuned to our own bodies while learning from his instructions.
