My Personal Journey with PIlates.  

My back was so tight when I woke up it took me half and hour to get it to loosen up. I was 38 years old, had three children and was trying my best to stay in shape to keep up with them. I had a Personal Training certification as well as a Spin Certification - I thought I was in shape! THEN on a whim decided to add Pilates to my repertoire. Well! My spine was so tight I couldn’t do the fundamental movements. This stopped me in my tracks, I immediately realised if I didn’t change what I was doing I was going to have chronic back pain down the line. I listened to my intuition and with the help of incredible mentors became a Pilates Teacher and love teaching this method to my clients. I love my job, my clients and the instructors who I share these passions with. Pilates saved my life.
