Why Pilates is so Personal

I have worked in the fitness industry for over 25 years. After suffering with constant low-grade neck and back pain from a car accident for many, many years, I discovered how Pilates could make a body pain free! Now Pilates is my passion. I believe SO much in the strengthening & healing powers of Pilates, that I incorporate them into all the disciplines I teach. I have worked very diligently to obtain the very best kind of training from the industry’s top educators, the top rated equipment and apparatus, and to create a warm, aesthetically pleasing environment in which to hold small group classes in my home studio. My philosophy as an instructor is to be in the moment 100% of the time so as to give each student my full attention so they feel like they’ve had a personal training session, yet experienced a group class. I hold certifications with The Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) and Balance Body University (BBU) in Pilates Mat, Reformer & Bodhi Suspension System, and have completed training in Chair, Tower, Arc, Barre, and Pool Pilates (Poolates) disciplines. I also hold certifications with The American Council on Exercise (ACE), The Aquatics Exercise Association (AEA), Mad dog Athletics & Johnny G. Spin, The Arthritis Foundation and the Melt Method. I am diligent about maintaining all these certifications current by attending continuing education workshops and trainings. My goal as an instructor is to teach my students to become stronger, more flexible, and be body aware in order to be able to apply Pilates into the everyday activities of their lives.
