Gabriella Walters is the founder Inferno Hot Pilates, the first dedicated Hot Pilates studio in Las Vegas. Gabi started the Hot Pilates craze in Las Vegas in 2009 – creating the first 60 minute, high intensity, low impact workout performed in a room heated to 95 degrees and 40% humidity. In 2011, Gabi helped bring Hot Pilates to California by partnering up with her mentor, Linda McGrath, owner of YogaSource Los Gatos. Since then, Hot Pilates has blossomed throughout the San Jose area and up the coast to as far as Sacramento. Today, Hot Pilates is offered in all of the major hot yoga studios in both Las Vegas and San Jose and is continuing to spread throughout the country.
Originally from Budapest, Hungary, Gabi grew up as an accomplished athlete, competing in Track and Field and winning her age group in many events including the Long Jump, High Jump, 400m, and 800m distances. She moved to the US in 2002 to compete in Fitness where she competed in many events across the country. Only after suffering a severe knee injury, did she discovered Meditation, Yoga, and Pilates.
In 2008, Gabi’s spiritual journey took her to India, where she learned Deeksha (Oneness Blessing). After months of prayer and meditation on the other side of the globe, Gabi came home to Las Vegas and realized her own purpose — to make a difference in the world and in other people’s lives. Channeling her desire to help others with her love of fitness, Gabi began studying Yoga — becoming a Hatha Yoga Instructor and getting certified in Power Yoga (Bryan Kest). Soon after Gabi became certified in Pilates through Balanced Body University (Jessica Abed-Rabbo) and started the Hot Pilates craze in the Las Vegas area.
In 2012, Gabi started Inferno Pilates — the first dedicated Hot Pilates studio in Las Vegas. Hot Pilates is a challenging, full body, low impact, high intensity workout, using Pilates principles. The room is heated to 95 degrees. It is designed for all fitness levels. It helps tone and strengthen muscles without the pounding of a high impact workout.
Since opening Inferno Hot Pilates in 2012, Gabi has taught over 3,000 Hot Pilates classes, more than anyone in the world. She is considered one of the premier experts as both an instructor and a business consultant. Having successfully launched the Hot Pilates program at YogaSource Los Gatos, CA and at P2O Hot Pilates in Sacramento, CA., Gabi’s experience and knowledge is second to none. Gabi plans to continue to launch Hot Pilates programs across the country and the rest of the world. In 2014, Gabi brought Inferno Hot Pilates to Europe, with a multi-day Hot Pilates teacher training and program launch at Amasole Yoga located in Budapest, Hungary.
