I am thrilled with my first session at Whole Living Pilates. The trainer was amazing and I am looking forward to more time in the studio.
Nicole has been practicing
Pilates for over 16 years and teaching for the last 13. Nicole
graduated with a B.A. in Dance from the University of California
Santa Barbara back in 1999. She first discovered Pilates while
studying at UCSB and was amazed at how this method of movement
greatly improved her dancing technique. After also
experiencing the incredible results of practicing Pilates both
during and after the birth of her sons, she began her
apprenticeship in 2005 with Shari Berkowitz, world renowned Pilates
educator and Biomechanics/Ergonomics Scientist. Under Shari’s
direction Nicole learned how to teach Classical Pilates with a
modern understanding of Biomechanics and Functional Anatomy.
After training for over 600 apprentice hours, Nicole received
her Power Pilates Comprehensive Certification in April of 2006. In
addition she also became a Certified Pilates Teacher with the
Pilates Method Alliance in 2013. Nicole continues to work with
Shari on a regular basis bringing her clients the latest
applications of modern science to Classical Pilates.
Over the years, Nicole has
taught everywhere from small Pilates studios, large corporate gyms
and community classes. In January 2017 she opened Whole Living
Pilates with a desire to bring Classical Pilates to Colorado
Springs offering the highest level of instruction and Pilates
apparatus available in this area. Her studio is the first to offer
all Classical apparatus by Pilates Designs, LLC in Colorado
Springs. Nicole is passionate about helping clients of all levels
to experience the power of Pilates in their own bodies and reconnec
to their body, mind and spirit. While not teaching Pilates,
she loves spending time with her husband and three sons enjoying
the beauty of Colorado.
