I fell in love with the Pilates method in 2012 when I accidentally stumbled into a YMCA Pilates class. After talking to the instructor about how she learned the method, she pointed me to Pilates by Val, a studio in Gulf Breeze, FL. After attending Val's classes for a few months, and feeling the benefits in my body (improved posture, flexibility, and reduced back pain), I decided to pursue a full certification and try to turn it into a career.
My personal experience has shaped the way I approach my practice. Correct and controlled movement with the intention of restoring balance to the body is the focus of my teaching. I view Pilates as one of the tools I use to help my clients better understand their bodies and learn how to prevent or recover from injuries.
I truly believe that Pilates is for EVERYONE : every body type, every age, and every fitness level. Whether you are training with me one-on-one or in a group setting, you can expect personalized attention. I limit my mat classes to 10-12 people so that I can watch everyone and make the necessary corrections. I am committed to the well being of every single client. I strive to give you a great work out, but more importantly, to impress on you the correct way to train and move your body both in class and in your daily lives.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you! If you have any questions feel free to contact me directly 850-287-5194!
