Portia first discovered Pilates at the age 15 and has been hooked ever since! She realized even at a young age how Pilates can change your body for the better and even helped improve her chronic asthma. Many years later, while living in New York City, Portia became a certified Personal Trainer. Although she loved this aspect of fitness, she quickly rediscovered her love of Pilates and became a Power Pilates Instructor, teaching in both Manhatten and Brooklyn. Portia loves teaching within the classical method of Pilates, because it works! It challenges every part of the body and you leave feeling stronger and maybe even a little bit taller. Her goal is to continually provide everyone with a safe, yet challenging and fun workout!
