Brittany has always enjoyed living an active lifestyle- surfing, biking, hiking, water skiing, running- anything outdoors or in the water. When she first discovered Pilates she loved the way it energized her and felt like Pilates would be the perfect balance to her lifestyle. Brittany was amazed at how fast she felt her muscles become strengthened and more flexible. She had always done all sorts of different forms of exercise, but it was Pilates where she saw the most change in her whole body from the inside out. Just as Joseph Pilates had said, after 10 sessions she felt differences in her body.
Brittany loved the mind-body connection that Pilates brought her and how Pilates has enhanced her performance in other activities. After practicing Pilates as a student she decided she wanted to share her passion for Pilates with others. Brittany completed a comprehensive certification through BASI in Santa Barbara, California. She was fortunate to train with elite Pilates instructors who have encouraged her and helped her advance her education. After years of deepening her Pilates practice she has become dedicated to learning and teaching classical Pilates. She now has a second Pilates certification through the renowned Romana's True Pilates classical certification.
Pilates is Brittany’s passion and it excites her everyday to get the opportunity to share it with other people. Her health and well-being shines through her teaching and her joyful personality makes working out fun! She is fully equipped to work with any age at any level. Brittany’s experience with Pilates has enabled her to flow through classes and be able to modify exercises for anyone in the class. Brittany loves seeing how Pilates can instantly brighten someone’s day and make them feel better!
