Aimee strives to preserve the Classical Pilates Method in her teaching. She teaches to the needs of her client, challenging them while leaving them feeling energized, centered and stronger. Aimee enjoys teaching her clients to understand the correct alignment for their individual bodies, allowing them to feel the correct muscular balance and establishing improved movement patterns, which ultimately manifest physical changes to their bodies. Aimee received her comprehensive Pilates certification from the Equinox Training Institute in New York and completed the Classical Syllabus, a continuing education workshop for certified instructors, with MeJo Wiggin. She continues to augment her education by attending workshops regularly and engaging in private sessions weekly. Aimee will begin Kathi Ross Nash’s PPATT advanced teacher training program during the autumn of 2023. Aimee’s confidence in Pilates can be attributed to the indelible change it has had on her body. At age 16 she was diagnosed with severe scoliosis that required spinal fusion surgery to correct her curvatures. She quickly learned that taking efforts to maintain spine health would translate into improving whole body health. After trying various forms of exercise and physical therapy, she found Pilates was the best activity for relieving chronic pain, building functional strength, and increasing mobility. At age 32, Aimee was diagnosed with breast cancer, which required a bi-lateral mastectomy; however her devotion to the Pilates Method ensured an almost immediate recovery with no ongoing pain. Aimee is a firm believer that the principles of Pilates can help any body become a better body.
