When Anne discovered a Pilates mat class 10 years ago she immediately fell in love with the focus, precision and control it required. “I felt like my best self when I was committed to Pilates and loved that I could become stronger and more toned without pain.” Anne is a two-time breast cancer survivor and found Pilates not only helped regain her strength, but also helped regain her confidence after chemo and surgery. “After my last surgery I was terrified to do any physical exercise, but with encouragement from my friend Mindy Agnoff I came to a reformer class and left a new person. It was amazing to regain control of my body and to feel the strength and flexibility I had lost.” This inspired Anne to pursue her teaching certification and empower others in regaining their own mind-body connection. “I want others to feel inspired to find their strength and confidence in each class.” Anne is certified in Pilates Reformer, TRX, Barre, and Trigger Point through Club Pilates. She is also a social worker connecting people with disabilities to one-on-one services in the community.
