Pilates of Boca is a fabulous facility

I earned my mat and equipment certification from the Power Pilates training center in Boca Raton, one of the foremost Pilates educational facilities in the country.

earning a Power Pilates certification requires plenty of study

Extensive coursework is required before taking a demanding series of practical and written exams, which is then followed by 600 hours of closely supervised apprenticeship at an approved Pilates studio.

Pilates training is never finished! Keeping up to date means a steady diet of continuing education taken with my peers – essential for offering the best possible training of a quality product.

pointerIn the early ’90s my career as a Legal Assistant was well established when I began hearing and reading about the Pilates Method.

My clients receive Classical Pilates training for maximum fitness benefitsAs a Classically certified Pilates trainer, every one of my clients receives attentive instruction taught in a professional studio atmosphere.

It wasn’t long before Pilates studios and classes made their way to the Sunshine State. I began taking group classes and absolutely loved the results!

Wanting more, I added private equipment sessions to my group class workouts, but I wasn’t finished.

train, study, repeat
Loving the way I felt mentally and physically after my sessions and searching for a healthier lifestyle than what working a law office offered I began the journey towards earning my own teacher certification.

After extensive research comparing several national programs, I chose New York’s Power Pilates course work for my certification, commuting to their South Florida training center in Boca Raton where I learned the Classical method from Pilates of Boca studio owner and Pilates teacher Stefanie Ellis.

a studio i can call my own!
The Power Pilates comprehensive program includes extensive in-studio time, practical and written exams, and a 600-hour apprenticeship requirement at an approved studio, which for me was the former Pilates Premier Studio in St. Petersburg.

I apprenticed there under the watchful eye of Tess Whelan, who holds classical certifications from both Romana Krysanowska and Power Pilates.

After 2-1/2 years teaching at Pilates Premier, I opened Your Pilates Lifestyle, LLC, in October, 2010. I haven’t looked back since.

I attend continuing education courses whenever possible to increase my knowledge and understanding of the practice as well as for personal growth.

I love what I do and the people I meet! Pilates has truly changed my life!
