At Moxie Mind & Body we are committed to helping you build a stronger and healthier mind and body through superior quality training in the classical Pilates method. We encourage you to have moxie when reaching personal goals and facing new challenges not only within our studio walls, but in your everyday life. Movement has always played a major role in Moxie Mind & Body Owner, Aubrey Johnson's life. It was through the dance community Aubrey discovered the wonderful world of Pilates and all it has to offer. “Pilates gave me a whole new outlook on how I should be using and moving my body, not just in the dance studio, but in my everyday life. If I wanted to age gracefully I knew I had to start making some positive changes in the unnatural movement patterns I adopted being in the dance world for so long." As her passion for the Pilates method grew, she knew it was her mission to share the method that Joseph Pilates created years ago and pass it on to anyone and everyone who wants to learn. Aubrey received her BA in dance from Point Park University. She is a PMA certified instructor and received her comprehensive training through Power Pilates in NYC. Aubrey is also a teacher trainer for Power Pilates and annually holds mat and comprehensive trainings at the studio. She regularly attends continuing education workshops and seminars to further her knowledge and education. In 2013, Aubrey auditioned and was accepted as one of only twelve people from around the world for a program at Vintage Pilates in LA entitled "The Work." Through this program she had the privilege of studying with world renowned teacher and Pilates elder, Jay Grimes (who studied directly with Joe and Clara Pilates.) Upon completion of "The Work", Aubrey was selected to continue her mentorship with Jay at Vintage Pilates for the next iteration of the program, entitled "Teaching the Work". Concurrently Aubrey is also mentoring under another world renowned teacher, Kathi Ross-Nash, through her program "The Red Thread". Kathi has studied closely with first generation teachers such as Romana Kryzanowska, Kathy Grant, Sari Mejia Santo, Jay Grimes and Edwina Fontaine. Aubrey's hope is to provide you with a studio where you can learn, enjoy your time, be inspired and work hard to create a stronger, more stable, and more flexible body. All of which should send you on the path of a longer, healthier, and happier life.
