I'm a beginner to Pilates and I've been working with Cassandra on the reformer. She is very thoughtful and encouraging, teaching me the basics and challenging me more each week, all while tailoring my sessions to my body's strengths and goals. What an excellent introduction to Pilates, thanks Cassandra!
Hi, my name is Amy Higgs. I am certified in Mat and I am close to getting my Equipment Certification. I have always been pretty active, playing softball when I was younger then switching to tennis when I got out of high school. Tennis is great cardio but it was just not enough to keep totally fit. In 2012 I had to get back surgery due to a herniated disk. After that I started focusing more on strengthening my body as well as cardio. It wasn’t until I got engaged and wanted to make sure I fit into my dress that I took my first Pilates class. After the class, I felt like I could breathe better, I felt taller and my whole body had gotten an amazing stretch and workout. I was hooked. I started doing Pilates 1-3 times a week. I easily fit into “The Dress” when it was time and I was feeling strong in my core and back. After I got married I embarked on my Pilates teaching journey. I have had a child since starting, great workout for strengthening pelvic floor while pregnant, so that has slowed the process down a bit. I’m still hooked and LOVE teaching people about the the awesomeness of Pilates and helping their body get stronger and feel good.
