Javier Perez Pont discovered The Pilates Method in 1995 after 15 years as a professional dancer and soloist as a principal dancer in several European companies. After training with the legendary Romana Kryzanowska and her daughter Sari Mejia Santo in NYC, Javier stayed and worked closely with his mentors to elevate his understanding of the roots of Contrology, as well as, mastering his skills as a teacher. During that time he obtained the organization’s level II status as an international trainer of teachers.
In 1999, Javier opened the first Pilates studio in Barcelona, which became an authorized teacher training center in 2002. For over a decade he has traveled extensively throughout Europe as both a teacher trainer and as an ambassador for the Pilates movement. Javier has been promoted to a Level 1X within the Romana’s Pilates Teacher Training program and recently relocated outside of Barcelona focusing on traveling and teaching Pilates throughout the world.
A true student and historian of Pilates, Javier co-authored, “The Authentic Pilates Method, The Art of Control” in 2005, which became a best seller in Spain and Spanish speaking countries worldwide. His most recent work, “Joseph Hubertus Pilates, the biography” has now been translated into English. Joseph Hubertus Pilates, the biography is a comprehensive study of Joseph Pilates as a man and visionary. Javier is currently working on the second part of this biography, as well as, a new book dedicated to finding the roots of Contrology. Javier has made it his life's work to share a deeper understanding of the true spirit of Pilates and the art of Contrology.
