Pilates is more than just a fitness program. It is safe for all ages and physical condition. It teaches body awareness, and good posture with an emphasis on mind-body connectivity and breath.
Pilates aims to help alleviate pain through strengthening the core, balancing muscle development, increasing flexibility, and improving body awareness and posture.
Pilates is unique in that it can range from post rehabilitation to conditioning for advanced athletes. Pilates can be adjusted for any body, age and fitness level. In short, Pilates is for everyone.
I love Pilates. I completed my Comprehensive Pilates Certification through Balanced Bodyand continued on to receive additional certification through the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA). Beyond my Pilates training I have a background in movement. I have a BA in Dance from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and I taught at private dance studios for several years. I love to move and I love to dance. My first encounter with Pilates came as the result of a fairly severe dance injury. I visited several doctors and none of them could find an explanation for my pain. I began doing Pilates through the recommendation of a Professor and through regular practice my pain disappeared completely.
Through E.L. Pilates, I want to help people experience what I have experienced through Pilates, a pain-free healthier life. I love seeing my clients make breakthroughs and complete exercises with beautiful control that they at first thought impossible. Pilates has the power to transform not only one’s body but one’s mind as well. It is such a privilege to be a part of those transformations.
My Husband and I moved to Fort Collins, Colorado in May 2014 from Central Wisconsin. We love the city and all the new people we get to meet! In August 2016 we welcomed our first child into the world!
