      What can a client expect from your class?

      We get to business fast in my classes, but we like to keep things light hearted and fun. I love to challenge my clients with new twists on exercises and I request that my clients ask me questions. Once I see that you want to improve and are committed to it, there is nothing I won’t do to get you there. My classes have a strong sense of community, I make it a point to get to know you personally and to care deeply about your goals.

      What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

      Joseph Pilates was a genius who created a method truly for everybody, it changes your body and then your life. He believed that Pilates would change the world if people began to practice the integration of mind, body and spirit. My mentor Lolita San Miguel, has spent her life educating others in this method and she truly lives and breathes its philosophy. I can only hope to be 80 years old, and as vivacious, healthy, and sassy as she is!

      Certification

      I was certified in a comprehensive, apprentice style program in Chicago. Although it was a thorough program, it left me with countless unanswered questions – questions about the method, the body, and the physics of movement. I went in search for answers anywhere I could find them. Over the years I have continued my education, studying with teachers from all styles and lineages of the Pilates Method. In 2012, I collaborated with Alison Goodman to create the Pilates Passport™, a comprehensive teacher-training program.

      Teaching Experience

      What can a client expect from your class?

      I always walk into a class with a game plan. My aim is for my clients to leave class having learned something about the method or their bodies. This is usually achieved through some sweating and shaking! I am incredibly passionate about my work. I bring my enthusiasm into every class I teach.

      What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

      Joseph Pilates was a clever, clever man. He saw the body as a whole, rather than just a series of systems. He approached the body, the mind, the breath as a complete package. One does not function properly without the other two. And he set out to improve people’s lives as he had improved his own. His cleverness went beyond the simple scope of the body. He invented dozens of strange and extraordinarily effective apparatuses, small and large, to help in his and his clients quest for health. Some of these apparatuses have been adopted by other modes of physical fitness and therapy. Never before and never again has there been a fitness guru quite so clever as Joseph H. Pilates.

      Teaching experience

      Since 2011

      What can a client expect from your class?

      I always have in mind the Pilates principals of control, centering, concentration, precision, and (of course) flow. As the teacher, I have to know why we are doing certain things, for example, changing the breath, or placing emphasis on a specific part of the movement. As a student, it is important to keep your focus and listen to your body and the movement. If your mind and body are truly connected, Pilates can be very challenging. I always work with the bodies in front of me, so I encourage conversations, questions, and the sharing of your goals and what you are striving for.

      What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

      Joseph Pilates, without any formal training, had an exquisite instinct for how to work with the human body. He was the picture of physical health, and his techniques were proven time and time again with his students by correcting wrong postures and even curing ailments. Somehow he knew exactly what each body needed and it obviously worked, because we are still practicing it today.

      Lolita San Miguel taught me to be confident in what I do and to value what I have to offer as a Pilates teacher. And she practices Pilates every single day – now that’s something to strive for!

I feel inspired every day by the hard work and dedication of clients here at Studio Flo, and I work hard to keep learning and growing as an instructor.

      What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

      Joseph Pilates developed his method out of his desire to overcome his own health problems and to help others while in an internment camp during WWI.

It is such a tight knit family and I love hearing clients compliment each other and be so present in each other's lives.

      What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

      Joseph Pilates was such a brilliant man to have created this method because it really is something everyone can do and, especially now, it is becoming more accessible to everybody. I am inspired everyday by the strength I find in my own body because of Joe's work and I am inspired by the strong men and women in our community. My mentor, Jennie, pushes me to want to grow more with her knowledge of and passion for Pilates. Seeing how much she truly cares about her clients and her instructors makes us all strive to be better and grow together.

It’s exciting to see clients get excited about their own breakthroughs and want to learn Pilates the way Joseph intended. There’s always something new to learn in Pilates, even as an instructor and I love sharing that in class. While we work hard each time, I also try to lighten the mood with a few jokes (usually at my own expense).

      What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

      Joseph truly was a man ahead of his time and his work is so incredible I want everyone to know about it. The more I learn about the science behind the method I can see how he had such a deep understanding of the human body even before modern medicine, physical therapy or any of those disciplines really existed. He developed a method that works so well for every body, at any level, and I have come to really love the genius behind his work.

      "Everyone is the architect of their own happiness," said Joseph Pilates. As a breast cancer survivor, I couldn't agree more. As a sickly child who went on to become, quite literally, a brand and byword for physical fitness, Joseph Pilates realized that people are able to effect radical personal change, if they are willing to commit to it.

    What can a client expect from your class?

    I have such a passion for Pilates and that translates in all of my classes. I focus on technique and how to get the most out of each exercise. My goal is for clients to end class with a smile on their faces and feeling an inch taller.

    What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

     I am so inspired by how Joseph Pilates created a method of exercise that is appropriate for all body types. He truly was ahead of his time. Pilates has changed my life in so many ways and I love hearing how his method has changed others' lives as well.

    What can a client expect from your class?

    Clients can expect a high energy, fun and thoughtful class. Clients feel invigorated rather than of exhausted after a session, like they are ready to "rule the world!"

    What do you find most inspiring about your mentor or Joseph Pilates?

    "Everyone is the architect of their own happiness," said Joseph Pilates. As a breast cancer survivor, I couldn't agree more. As a sickly child who went on to become, quite literally, a brand and byword for physical fitness, Joseph Pilates realized that people are able to effect radical personal change, if they are willing to commit to it.
