Michele was the first graduate of The Pilates Center Intermediate program in 2012. She began teaching at Boulder Bodyworks with other TPC grads, specializing in therapeutic rehabilitative Pilates in addition to her classical training. She also taught Pilates in a chiropractic/spinal rehabilitation practice, a classical ballet conservatory, and in her home studio. Additionally, she has spent a year attending Cara Reeser’s weekly Teacher Training Seminars, learning Cara and Kathy Grant’s techniques. After a year an a half of teaching, Michele decided to deepen her training and skills by returning to TPC to complete the Bridge program so she could complete her Advanced studies. Since graduation in April 2014, Michele has broadened her Pilates teaching horizons to include Europe, invited to be a guest teacher at Corebody in Paris, France and at The Pilates Centre in Dublin, Ireland. In addition, She has completed the Licensed Teacher Certification from TPC, initiated a Pilates program to rehabilitate patients at Physical Therapy of Boulder, maintained a home studio for private clients, and currently is teaching in the Pilates studio at Colorado Athletic Club. Michele has been a PMA Certified Teacher since 2013.
Michele studied and taught dance while in university, graduating with a BA degree in Dance. She then studied and danced professionally in New York City while continuing to supplement her dance income by teaching dance classes to all ages, from toddlers to adults. Learning Pilates movement skills and choreography, as well as teaching, is like returning full circle for Michele: she loves moving and teaching Pilates as she did dance. Michele feels especially appreciative and fortunate that she can share her knowledge of Pilates and teaching skills with students around the world.
