Amanda began practicing Pilates in college when she needed to add a new workout to her weekly regimen. She had been experiencing inexplicable back pain and from everything she had heard about Pilates, it seemed like the best option. She saw positive changes in the way her body both looked and felt almost immediately. After one month into her practice, she scheduled her first Teacher Training course. Amanda has certifications on the Mat and Apparatus through Power Pilates, Balanced Body, and Core Pilates NYC. She has now been teaching for 7 years, and has found the most rewarding part of her job is knowing how much better her clients feel. "It makes my heart so happy when I hear my clients - who all have different bodies and physical capabilities - tell me how much stronger their entire body feels; how their improved flexibility and posture lets them enjoy their favorite sports and activities better." She is excited to have finally made the transition into teaching Pilates full time and to share her Pilates knowledge with the world!
