Biography

Photo of Dara Pogoff

Dara was introduced to Pilates while pursuing a degree in Dance and Choreography from Columbia College Chicago. She soon noticed the benefits, from improving her dance technique to enhanced mental clarity. She first studied a classical method through FFC in 2013. She then went to train at Pilates Chicago in 2014, and completed her studies through the Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, through their Bridge/Other program. She is also a licensed Massage Therapist, graduated from Cortiva Institute in 2010. Her approach draws from both Eastern and Western methodologies. This helps with her awareness of anatomy, posture, gait function, and meridian/energy pathways when assessing clients. Dara also holds a Personal Training Certification through American Fitness Institute and has taken courses through PTX Therapy, in addition to teaching a variety of Dance styles to both, children and adults. She enjoys working with a wide demographic of clients and looks forward to continuing her journey.
