"I discovered Pilates literally by accident several years ago when I tore my ACL on the ski slopes. Told I would need reconstruction, I sought a second opinion which offered physical therapy using Pilates. This intro left me wanting to learn as much as I could and so I enrolled in a rigorous Pilates teacher training program. A follow up appointment with my knee doctor one year later left him speechless. I had recovered completely. This amazing result is what drives me to share my knowledge of and passion for Pilates. With determination, hard work, and a positive attitude, I believe anything is truly possible."
