Samantha found Pilates during her studies in modern dance at Point Park University as a way to keep her body healthy, strong, and aligned during long rehearsals. Pilates reintroduced to her how her connection to and movement from her core allowed her to move with ease and power! Her professional dance career took her around the US and various cities across the world such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Seoul and more. Her Pilates practice was especially vital to prepare for a successful performance. Samantha still performs in Chicago as a freelance artist.
Samantha has her Bachelors of Fine Arts, a 500hr Pilates teaching certificate from “The Lab”, a Pre/Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist Certificate, and a Postural Restoration Institute; Pilates Certificate. As a result of her passion for Pilates and rehabilitation, she is currently completing her Pre-Physical Therapy certificate at Northwestern University.
She has been teaching Pilates in Chicago for the past four years and is thrilled to be a part of the Club Pilates family.
