A Little Background Information
My introduction to Pilates was over 12 years ago. I feel fortunate that my initial experience was with the Stott Pilates® Method which has played a significant role in my study and practice of this art form. As a leader in the industry, Stott Pilates® is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by Joseph Pilates and it incorporates modern exercise science and rehabilitation principles — this makes it one of the safest and effective exercise programs available.
I've taught Pilates for many years and I am fascinated by the remarkable effectiveness of Pilates. It becomes more challenging and interesting with every client I work with. As the years have gone by, if I have learned anything, it is that there is a depth and maturity to Pilates that develops over time, and this experience teaches as well as inspires me to obtain even greater knowledge about Pilates. I continually expand my training in the topics and methods that serve my clients and then challenge them to meet their goals. See below for a partial list of my own education and training.
My Best Definition of the Practice of Pilates
Pilates is an education in the fundamentals of proper movement, posture, and alignment with the goal to create effortless movement to gain strength and flexibility.
On a Personal Note
I could go on endlessly about Pilates, but my goal is to get you moving and out of the chair! That is why I offer the first session complimentary to you. This gives you an opportunity to ask questions, see what I do, and get a glimpse of what Pilates is all about.
