Nicola Gravante was born in Switzerland and his passion for dance started at an early age when he took his first ballet class 11 years old. He finished his professional Musical School in Vienna at the “Performing Arts Studios”. He performed in many musicals (Mamma Mia, On the Town, Jesus Christ Superstar) in Vienna, Munich, Zurich and St. Gallen.


After a knee injury, Pilates helped him to get in shape again for the stage. In this ‘recovery’ time he realised how beneficial and complete the Pilates method was.

Before starting his Pilates teacher training in Milan by “Covatech Pilates School” recognised by PMA (Pilates Alliance Method), he took several classes and workshops from Jean Claude Nelson “Bluebird Pilates Munich” and Alexandra Schmid “Pilates Studio Alexandra Schmid”

To improve his knowledge about the human body during his education he took the anatomy workshop from Blandine Calais Germaine.

He offers private and group classes in the following languages: IT/EN/DE/FR

Nicola teaches between Vienna (Nickpilates Home Studio/Pilates Akademie/ John Harris/ In good Shape) Zurich (Live Fit Studio/ Holmes Place/ PowerQi/ Fitnesspark) and Milano (Justb Pilates)
