I am certified in Pilates Mat and Pilates Reformer through Move Studio in Ann Arbor. I began my pilates journey about 7 years ago after having my third child. I was an athlete growing up and fitness and wellness were always a huge part of my life. But, over time I was looking for a change, and when I found Pilates I fell in love with it! One of the things I love most about Pilates is that it’s so much more than a physical experience. There is a true mind and body connection, and since I have been practicing I have felt the effects in all aspects of my daily life. For me, the best thing about Pilates is that everyone can do it. All ages, shapes and sizes. And it is constantly challenging which makes it so much fun to do. Joseph Pilates emphasized that we are “as old as our spinal chord” and this has certainly proven to be true for me and many of my clients. My favorite exercise (there are a ton) is the “teaser” because it truly challenges your core and balance and it can be modified so everyone can do it!
