What the heck is Wundabar? LA’s popular upgraded pilates workout arrives in NYC

Posted on February 15, 2016


The first thing you should know is that if you’re chuckling to yourself while thinking “I wonder what WundaBar is,” you’re saying it wrong.

Pronounced “woondabar,” the popular, growing West Coast Pilates workout just arrived in New York City, with a street-level studio in Soho, where its patented WundaFormer machines will definitely elicit that reaction as people spot them through the glass storefront.

The machine and its accompanying workout are the creation of Amy Jordan, a Pilates instructor who wanted to solve for how much space all of the different apparatuses took up at her studio and the time it took to transition from one to another.

So, she designed one device that included the Reformer, Wunda Chair, Jumpboard, and a ballet barre, a “Swiss Army Knife of Pilates machines,” she says. “We marry intensity with the integrity of traditional Pilates.”
