"Pilates has given me a sense of strength that far exceeds any other fitness class I've ever tried and it has improved my life in ways I never could have expected. Year after year, Pilates continues to provide me inspiration for self-discovery, healing, and self-care."
Michelle began her Romana's Pilates training in 2005 as an undergrad at Goucher College in Baltimore, MD. She continued her training, under Sonia Herreria, at The Pilates Studio d'Aix-en-Provence, France, then completed her certification at True Pilates New York with Sari Mejia Santo at the end of 2008.
From 2009-2015 she taught at The Pilates Center at Goucher College as a full-time instructor. She worked with private clients, taught group mat classes and taught the Pilates academic class for college credit. In 2012, she served as Director until her departure three years later.
In 2015, she moved to San Diego, CA and has since continued her teaching and learning. Michelle has recently taken classes from master instructors such as Lori Coleman-Brown, Chris Robinson, Moses Urbano, Michael Levy and Kathi Ross-Nash. On mild sunny days, you can find her teaching at her indoor/outdoor home studio space.
