Why practicing CovaTech® Pilates®: let our Clients speak for us

CovaTech® Pilates® Studio was founded in 1989 and since then, through the pioneering activity of Anna Maria Cova, we contributed to introduce, raise awareness and spread Pilates in Italy and Europe.

We grew together with our Clients from which we never stop drawing incentives and inspiration to improve their daily wellbeing through our beloved discipline.

Some of them have been practicing Pilates according to the CovaTech® method since more than 20 years, others have discovered it more recently. All of them, according to their own lifestyle, appreciate the various and numerous benefits of Pilates and each and every one of them has made it part of their own life.

As many of us, in my work I became always on-call. That means I can never stop working, ending up dedicating lesser and lesser time to myself. Sports, by the way, have never been a priority of mine.

I "discovered" Pilates six years ago, thanks to CovaTech® Pilates® Studio. Since then, Silvana has never stop teaching me...

Even attending classes just once a week (for the above-mentioned reasons) for me, the benefits in terms of breathing control, balance, posture and psycho-physical wellbeing are visible. ..

I will never be able to give up this continuance. Pilates entered in my weekly schedule and now there are other things that have to make room for it! A special thank you to Carmen who, with patience and efficiency, always manage to keep up with my agenda, finding me a place each time.

I have been practicing Pilates at the CovaTech® Studio for almost twenty years because I think this is a complete method which provides body and mind with great benefits.

When I finish my morning Pilates class, I feel like I’m re-gaining possession of my body and all my deeper muscles, plus I feel full of vitality and freer in the movements...

I worship the Studio because is cozy and welcoming. Anna, Silvana and all the other Teachers follow you with professionalism and passion making you start your day with a sense of conscious “lightness” and a renovated energy.

For the health of my back and my body in general, I think Pilates is the best choice, either practicing it as the only activity or as a completion to other sports' activity. But, above of all, to me, it is absolutely fundamental to have the supervision of an excellent Teacher: and that is exactly why I choose CovaTech® Pilates®.

When I tried the first Class at the CovaTech® Studio, I knew I was in the right place!

I started attending Pilates classes about 10 years ago. My sedentary work led me to gain interest in this discipline which would have allowed me to relax my body with the muscles' stretching (essential after hours at the desk) and toning them too. Sitting down for long hours, in fact, caused me painful sciaticas.

With Pilates, I have benefited of a greater elasticity and experienced a general body wellness. I’ve also learned, thanks to correct breathing and focus, to "feel" some muscles that now I am able to relax even out of the Classes. Pilates is not only stretching, as many could think but, according to each level and preparation, it is physically challenging and acts on all the muscles.

What can I add? I believe it is a discipline which may accompany you along your whole life with adaptable workload according to any ages and functional to an overall wellbeing.

I met Anna Maria Cova and CovaTech® method about 15 years ago, when Anna opened her Studio in the premises next to my family business.

The meeting was particularly timing because it happened in a period when I was looking for an effective remedy to ease my back pain which I couldn’t get rid of, despite numerous remedies I tried.

Since then, any time I feel that my body needs to recover balance and strength, I go visit my friend Anna and her method and with few pleasant sessions I get back in shape, eliminating the effect that stress and incorrect posture have on my back.

Anna and I met on an express train on my way to Venice in 2013. Anna was sitting with elegance (spine straight of course) in the next couch and she was truly a brilliant, gorgeous lady. She handed me her business card and told me that if I would have had any problem, I could have just given her a call. That card has "CovaTech" on it and explains she was a Pilates teacher.

I have been practicing yoga over 10 years, but never Pilates. Given her long career as a professional Dancer, Pilates teacher, Physiotherapist and a Yoga practitioner, she is able to observe your body, understand it and then offer you a specialized unique session that definitely changes your body. Exercises, at the beginning, seemed quite simple but, even after one hour session, you would feel a big difference!

Since then, Anna and I have been kept in contact, and whenever I am in Italy I continue to choose CovaTech® (I wish I could take her session once a week!) because of Anna's professional knowledge, technique and teaching skill. I love Anna's personality, her brilliant energy, her strong will to keep learning, keep sharing with her Students and Clients. Plus, the atmosphere of Studio CovaTech® is crisp and clear.

I decided to start with Pilates because my body needed movement. I was super lucky because I met Anna Maria Cova two years ago in June. Then, we started our enthusiastic path. Anna is a great professional, reliable and competent, generous in her way of teaching. Attend a class with Anna is an honor but even a serious physical commitment, you work intensely and the results are visible even for a “little wreck” like me: improved posture, fit body, toned muscle, free mind. The Class makes you feel well and everything you learn grows stronger into yourself. I’m enthusiast and I get enthusiast for Pilates, it is essential to me! I recommend it to everyone, but it must be done right! CovaTech® Studio is the right place. The place is professional, cheerful and rigorous enough. There are specific rules to respect. Anna manages all that very well together with her valued Teacher and employees. Thank you to my great Teacher! Love you so much, Gabry.

I’ve been Anna and Silvana’s Client for the past twenty years, at the time, I chose them because Anna was the first to bring Pilates in Italy. I’m 67 years of age and I try to fight the inevitable deterioration and osteoporosis keeping myself fit with Pilates. Five years ago, while skiing, I broke a vertebra and my wrist; after three months of back brace, I did the rehabilitation in private sessions with Anna and thanks to that, I resumed my professional activity and sports.

Today I’m able to ski again for six uninterrupted hours, and I go vacationing by bike with backpack.

I hope to be able to attend my Classes with Anna and Silvana till…forever!

I started practicing Pilates because, ever since I was a teenager, I had various postural problems and, after a motorbike accident, I hurt a vertebrae.

Attending Classes, each week, to me, means having an hour of complete break, exclusively focused on my body and knowing my body better and better.

The very first question of the Class is: “how do you feel, girls?” and according to the answer the class is set up specifically. I chose CovaTech® for the extreme professionalism and attention that Teachers have to any single Client.
