At The Pilates Center, it’s our mission to heal the world by empowering people to transform their health and Return to Life through Pilates. And it’s always exciting when we get to see that mission carried out far and wide by our incredible TPC graduates.
Today, we want to highlight two graduates who are sharing their love for Pilates with their communities in Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Meet Everlea Bryant:
Everlea is a Host Advisor and Assistant Teacher Trainer for TPC, helping to mentor and support Classical Pilates students from her home base in Norfolk, VA.

Meet Moimusa Ahmadu:
Moimusa is a Host Advisor for TPC, helping to spread the mission of Pilates and its healing art form. Moimusa credits TPC with “creating a culture of learning based on hard work and excellence” that has helped him get to where he is in his life and career. As the son of immigrant parents from Sierra Leone, West Africa, Moimusa wanted to make something of himself and had big dreams he wanted to pursue. He moved to Boulder in pursuit of one of those dreams—to become a World Class Ultra Endurance Triathlete. However, an injury led him to learn more about the healing power of Pilates, and it’s how he made the decision to go back to school for a degree in Sports Medicine. And he was also able to see his dream through and completed his career as a Triathlete (injury free). Now, Moimusa teaches Classical Pilates at George Washington University and worldwide. “As a black man who has experienced being marginalized and stereotyped, I feel honored to be celebrated by my very own.” You can learn more about Moimusa and his work at Guts Pilates & Sports Medicine.
