Esperanza Aparicio Romero and Javier P�rez Pont worked as professional dancers for over 15 years, as soloists and principal roles in several European companies.
In 1994 they discovered the Pilates method of physical conditioning. After training as teachers with the legendary Romana Kryzanowska and Sari Mejia Santo in New York they stayed for a time alongside these two teachers with the idea of perfecting their knowledge, obtaining the organization�s Level II as international trainers.
At the end of 1999 they decided to return to Spain and chose Barcelona as the venue for the first Studio endorsed and supported by their two masters in Spain, installing what was to be the first Studio of Pilates Method in Barcelona.
The year 2002 sees the beginning of the Programme for Certification of Teachers in Spain under the tutelage of the two teachers referred to above. Over these years they have introduced the Pilates method in conventions throughout the Spanish territory and on television and radio. Currently, in addition to running their Studio and School of Teacher Certification, they are collaborating with Romana�s Pilates as guests in the training of teachers to give seminars and classes internationally.
Esperanza Aparicio and Javier P�rez Pont published in the year 2005 the first book by Spanish authors about the Pilates method with the title �The Authentic Pilates Method, The Art of Control� with the Editorial Martinez Roca of the Grupo Planeta, which has been not only a bestseller in Spain but also throughout the whole of Spanish-speaking America. The work has been translated into Portuguese.
They recently published with the publisher Hakabooks a collection of seven books in eBook format under the general title of �Contrology. Pilates Physical Culture� with reference to the technique of the method Aparatology. The work in Spanish has been translated into English.
Currently Javier P�rez Pont is working on the second part of this Biography and in a new book dedicated to finding the ethical, moral and personal roots of Contrology. A dive into the depths of the origin and development of this work which tightly links the author and work as one. A new book that aims to recover the lost true spirit of Contrology.
