Elina is a great instructor. I always look forward going to her class. I wish she was teaching mor pilates classes at westview.
Cindy has been interested in the movement of the body and fascinated by the relationship between body and mind, ever since she took gymnastics and ballet as a child, and danced to the rhythms of Salsa, Merengue and Cumbias as a young adult. Cindy was introduced to Pilates in 2001 and it didn’t take her long to become a passionate believer as she saw how the practice transformed her posture, strength, body awareness, as well as her mind and spirit. She was amazed when she was able to take modified Pilates classes after fracturing her foot in 2004 and was able to strengthen every part of her body in the interim. She started teaching Matwork classes in 2015 and studied both Matwork and Reformer through the school of John Garey Fitness & Pilates, in the Stott Pilates method, pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates.
As a Certified Pilates Instructor, Cindy is excited about helping her clients develop more mind/body awareness and to be a stronger version of you. Her unique teaching technique allows for the exercises to become a foundation for transforming everyday movement patterns. These small changes make a huge difference. She ensures to compliment all level types, and to incorporate modifications if needed. As Joseph Pilates said, “It’s the mind itself which shapes the body”.
When Cindy is not working, you can find her enjoying time with
her lovely family either doing outdoor activities or just relaxing
at home. She’s a great example to her children and strives to live
a healthy lifestyle on a daily basis. In addition to Pilates, Cindy
compliments her workouts with spin, yoga, jogging, and anything
that gets her heartbeat going. She continues to educate herself in
health and fitness and prides herself on offering her clients an
encouraging, thoughtful, yet fun and upbeat class.
Cindy is CPR certified and is excited to be a part of the team!
