Pam first began taking Pilates when she was a teenager studying ballet. Pilates is often recommended for dancers because it shares the same goals with increasing core strength while developing elongated muscles. She found that Pilates made her feel more balanced and stronger than she had ever felt before. She continued to study Pilates for many years. As she moved on from dancing to teaching ballet, she wanted to share the knowledge and benefits that she had received from Pilates with her students. In 2009, she received her International Pilates Certification. In addition to training her ballet students at Santa Clarita Ballet Academy, she also taught for a local studio, The Pilates Pro. She recently moved back to Bakersfield and is looking forward to teaching for Club Pilates!
