Ms Emily will give you the opportunity to learn a comprehensive Pilates program (exclusively using Gratz Pilates equipment), while educating you further about your mind-body connection. Classical Pilates can help sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds, but Ms Emily is able to customize programs for each client due to her mature perspective on movement inside and outside the body, empowering a variety of clients.
Before her Pilates career began, Ms Emily completed her B.S.B.A. in Hotel Management and B.A. in Studio Art at Berea College in Berea, KY. Her love for movement and the efficiency of the human body was established early on in life through sports and cooking. Her desire to learn more about health and fitness continued after college. She passionately worked for Standard Process (a company committed to providing the safest, highest quality dietary supplements), then she became a Certified Colon Hydrotherapist and a Certified Master Pilates Instructor.
Ms Emily was privileged to achieve her Advanced Teacher Training diploma through The Pilates Centerâ€™s world renowned Advanced Teacher Training Program with master Pilates teacher Samantha Walley in Redondo Beach, CA. She continued her studies in Pilates and gained a Masterâ€™s diploma through The Pilates Centerâ€™s Masterâ€™s Program studying with master Pilates teachers The Taylor Sisters (who received their Pilates training in New York City at the original Pilates Studio and were certified as teachers by Romana Kryzanowska, heir to the classical tradition of Joseph Pilates), Debora Robinson Kolwey, Kelli Burkhalter Hutchins, Kaile Larson Ziemba, Leah Wecksler, April Ingham, and Kelly Smith in Boulder, CO.
