I grew up dancing, so it was a natural progression from being a student to being a teaching assistant, then full on teacher over time. An important quality for teachers is that you're always learning, so I continually attend workshops and classes to stay fresh.
I've worked with everyone from professional actors and dancers to clients with severe scoliosis, spinal fusions and joint dysfunctions. I personally worked out while pregnant with twins, so I'm intimately familiar with staying fit through pregnancy.
Do your homework while looking for a teacher. You're not legally required to HAVE certifications in Pilates, Dance eduction or Fitness training/Personal t raining to teach, so just because someone says they are something doesn't mean they are qualified.
