Guest Pilates Instructor

Denes Dreisziger

Founder and teacher at Espace Pilates

Dénes Dreisziger fell in love with Pilates in 2005 while dancing professionally in Europe. Less than two years later he completed his first certification in Vienna. Upon returning to Montreal, Dénes completed his full certification with STOTT PILATES® in 2012, and passed his Instructor Trainer Mat and Reformer training in 2015. He then worked as an Instructor Trainer there from 2015 to 2019.

It was while teaching at Deja Griffith's studio, who studied under Romana Kryzanowska, that Denes discovered Classical Pilates. Drawn to the challenge of Classical Pilates, he completed Clare Dunphy Hemani's 'Advanced Teaching Seminar' in Newburyport, Massachusetts in 2017. Continuing his passion for understanding the full Classical Pilates System, Denes embarked on another full Certification in New York City with Alycea Ungaro's Real Pilates, which he completed in December 2019. Fourteen years after Alycea Ungaro's book 'Body in Motion' originally helped spark his Pilates Journey!

Dénes is the co-owner of Espace Pilates Montreal, Canada’s first Real Pilates Teacher Training host studio.
