As a Master Trainer Yvonne has over 150 Teacher Trainers that have gone through the Pilates certification program with her. She prides herself on supporting those Instructors "forever". It's about connecting and mentoring her students not only through the program but also throughout their careers.
Yvonne has a larger than life personality and brings that energy to every class and teacher training programs she teaches, along with a wealth of experience and knowledge in the Pilates practice.
I began my career as a Team Leader at Ascent, a school for individuals with Autism. Teaching children with Autism is one of my passions. It was during my time at Ascent that I realized I not only had a passion for teaching students but also a love for training and evaluating other staff members. I bring the same enthusiasm for teaching in a classroom setting to teaching in the studio!
I studied Pilates and became certified at IMX in Manhattan and then assisted with opening a studio on Long Island. Teaching and managing that studio for 5 years, gave me the opportunity to teach students ranging from 15-70+ years old….from beginners to advanced. I also enjoy working with and helping students/athletes rehabilitating injuries. While my teaching style is challenging, I am also nurturing and supportive. I design classes that are creative and engaging, meeting my student’s individual needs. In December 2017 I was hired as the lead instructor for Club Pilates Commack.
I recently decided to take my Pilates education to the next level by becoming a Master Trainer for Club Pilates! I am just about to complete my first in studio portion with my first group of TTPs and I couldn’t be happier or more proud to be doing this work!
