Angela first became aware of Pilates while in college receiving her B.A. in Dance. After college, she moved to New York City to pursue her dance career. It was there that she joined the New York Guild Certification Program under the tutelage of Joseph Pilates' disciple, Master Teacher Romana Kryzanowska as well as Bob Liekens. After more than 600 hours of apprenticeship and many rigorous tests she went on to teach at Tribeca Bodyworks in Manhattan. Since leaving New York, Angela has taught in both Newport Beach and Irvine, California as well as guest teaching on Nantucket Island. Back home in San Francisco, Angela spent 5 years teaching at Golden Gate Pilates before opening Pilates Works in 2007. Angela is proud to be teaching the classical pilates method that Joseph Pilates developed many years ago.
