Stephanie English, Instructor in Training
I had my first Pilates private session a few years ago at the urging of a friend. I had found myself prone to injury, had difficulty doing simple tasks and, at 50 years old, was moving and feeling like I was 30 years older.
Pilates has been life changing for me. It has made me stronger, more flexible and as a competitive fencer, more balanced in both body and mind. As Pilates has helped me, I want to help others achieve the same mobility, strength and balance that we tend to lose as we age.
I am trained in Reformer and Mat Pilates through Balanced Body. I am currently completing my instructor training to become a certified Comprehensive Pilates Instructor. I believe if you are enjoying your workout, you will keep at it, so I strive to balance the fitness goals of every client with fun and variety during each session.
Before my Pilates career, I owned Victorian Belle, a custom wedding gown business for 17 years before retiring to focus on me after my bout of Breast cancer in 2011. I keep active with fencing, volunteering, traveling, painting, gardening, hiking and just enjoying the life, family and friends that I have been blessed with.
