Why did you get Certified in Pilates?
I was a professional ballet dancer with The Stuttgart Ballet and the Joffrey Ballet. After an injury that stopped my career I taught Yoga for a few years . Then I found Pilates. It was the perfect next step for me to integrate movement with strengthening exercises. I was intrigued with the endless variations and combinations of exercises, reminiscent of dance.
