Joy is a newer instructor but she is not new to Pilates. She has been practicing Pilates for over 20 years. As a dancer and Dance Major in College, Joy was introduced to Pilates as a must for dancers to recover from injury. After having her two children, ages 15 and 12, Joy used Pilates to get her abdominal muscles back in shape. After getting such great results she wanted to share this with other people. She decided that she wanted to be a Pilates instructor. However, life got in the way and other commitments took over. She continued to practice Pilates as she was busy raising her two kids as a full time mother. For the past ten years she focused her energy on being a dance fitness instructor. However, in the back of her mind, she was always thinking that she wanted to be a Pilates Instructor. This was her first passion. She finally found the time and commitment to go through the teacher training at Club Pilates. While going through her training she really now understands why her body feels so good while practicing Pilates. She is so excited to share her knowledge with the clients at Club Pilates. Not very many people can say that they work everyday at something they are truly passionate about.
