Andrea began her journey into Pilates 17 years ago when a debilitating illness left her barely able to walk after over 20 years of being a fit and accomplished dancer. She was able to strengthen and create balance in her body that made her stronger than ever before. From her rehab with Pilates, Andrea continued as a dancer and was inspired to begin her career in fitness with emphasis on rehabilitation to help others achieve the same results. Her approach is to help her clients go beyond their own goals and limitations through the Pilates Method.
No two bodies are the same, and should not be trained as such, and you do not need to be a dancer or athlete to receive the benefits. Andrea has become one of the top and most sought out instructors by Physical Therapists and studios in the Pilates field by reading the body in front of her and having the knowledge to be versatile and dynamic so the client continues to evolve. Currently, Andrea is studying Neurokinetic Therapy to continue to learn for her clients to help them recover faster from injuries.
Most people do not know that Joseph Pilates himself was not a dancer, but a boxer. Dancers were attracted to his method because it was the only form of exercise that stretches and strengthens the muscles at the same time without creating bulky muscles. Joseph Pilates wanted his method to be attainable for everyone so that they could experience a "Return to Life".
