Born in Poland, Dorothy graduated from Hotel Management College. She grew up doing Callanetics – an exercise program based on Pilates. During her hotel work, she developed shoulder and lower back problems. In order to relieve this pain and stress she was experiencing, she began taking lessons at the Mindful Moves Pilates Center in Mount Kisco, NY. After several months she was amazed with the results. She was feeling more energized, stronger and free from pain. This experience made her decide to change her career. She is fully certified on Mat and Apparatus through Power Pilates (all levels) with 20 years of experience teaching. She continues to improve her Pilates skills with Continuing Education classes and Personal Training. Dorothy enjoys working with people and seeing her clients look and feel their best.
