Amy embarked on her exploration of Pilates in New York City and has taught at numerous locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn since 2011. She initially began training under the direction of Teri Steele and after earning an advanced Mat + Props certification she continued in order to complete a full apparatus certification under the direction of The Lab in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Her passion for movement first blossomed throughout her training and career as a professional dance performance artist and has only continued to deepen within her personal investigation of Pilates. She earned a BFA in Dance Performance from the University of South Florida, Tampa. Amy is intrigued with refining awareness, boosting proprioception, enhancing coordination, building strength, and fostering healthy range of motion. Her teaching approach is highly influenced by her own study and practice, and encouragement of proper anatomical alignment is of utmost importance.
Born and raised in France, Cecile has always been very involved with sports, dance and outdoor activities. She pursued her nursing degree while doing acrobatics, acting and trapeze as much as her schedule allowed. She then left nursing to pursue work with the French Circus Art Academy and then was hired to be the aerial act of a new Cirque du Soleil touring show. She exchanged her white nurse outfit for shinny costumes as her amazing adventure began, on different continents, touring, and then a permanent show in Las Vegas. Through her work, she was injured many times and had numerous shoulder and back surgeries which is how she discovered Pilates. She fell in love with the practice and became a certified instructor through UNLV. Through her passion for teaching, she saw her consistent students and clients improve their physical conditions but more importantly, they became happier, more confident and sometimes completely pain free. This was pure joy for her knowing she was helping people to get healthier and happier. She has also studied thai yoga massage and energy healing techniques like Reiki and Moldova technique.
