Devon earned her Advanced Pilates Certification from The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. She was a founding board member of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), a studio owner for 10 years, and has been an active Pilates teacher/ambassador for 25+ years.
At first, Pilates was a great way to combat back pain and work stress from the road-warrior effects of a full-time sales job. After years of teaching group exercise, plus years spent competitive figure skating as a young girl, she loved the body awareness and strength, the freedom of movement and yet the discipline that Pilates brought to her body and overall well-being. After several years of thrice-weekly private sessions, Devon began her certification in Boulder, which took several more years! A lifelong learner by nature, she continues to learn from experts in the Pilates industry and beyond, and counts certifications in TRX, Barre, Bender Ball, alongside numerous workshops on individual Pilates apparatus as sources of continued inspiration. Devon strongly believes the positive impact of a thoughtful, consistent Pilates practice is cumulative over a lifetime, akin to nurturing a successful lifelong friendship or partnership - and a main factor that contributes to a high quality of life. After sending her daughter off to college in 2018, she feels privileged to be able to work with like minded Pilates instructors and Club Pilates owners to bring quality teaching to as many people as possible!
