Teacher Of The Month
I am a Pilates Instructor and a Registered Massage Therapist. I've been part of the Pilates in Guelph teaching team since 2011 and began offering massage therapy at the studio in 2015. I received my Pilates training from Body Harmonics, a Canadian company that teaches contemporary Pilates. To date, I have been trained to teach on the Mat, Reformer, Cadillac and Chair. This summer I will complete my training on the Barrels and I have plans to write my Pilates Method Alliance test this winter to achieve our Industry's standard in full certification. I am currently participating in a mentorship study under Katrina Foe, a 2nd Generation Master Pilates Instructor who received her training from Pilates Elder Lolita San Miguel. The purpose of this mentorship program is to deepen and develop my personal and professional practice skills as well as focus training in Pilates customer service and education.
I am returning from maternity leave this May since the birth of my second child. Life has gotten very busy, and Pilates has been my Oasis both mentally and physically; something I'm sure many of our Clients can relate to. My classes are heavily influenced by the principles of Pilates and tend to be structured with deliberate progressions. I incorporate my knowledge as a Massage Therapist into each session to help deepen my Clients' appreciation for how a consistent Pilates practice can improve their spinal health, joint mechanics, stress levels, facial function and muscle tone. My goal as an Instructor is to help you achieve steady and consistent progress in your own personal practice, and to help instill in you a curiosity and passion for making Pilates part of your daily life. I also hope to be a resource for our Pregnant Clients, teaching prenatal classes and answering questions about how to approach Pilates during this stage in their lives.
You will find me teaching classes on Saturday mornings at our studio in downtown Guelph and treating massage clients during the week at Motion Plus Physiotherapy in the city's south end. I can always be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy International Pilates Day
