I am in my third year at Core Integrity Pilates and am getting stronger and feeling healthier every day. Amanda instills the basics and then continually helps you to challenge yourself to get more each session. I was never a person who joined classes, but I am disappointed when I don’t get to class at least three times a week!
Amanda finds that being of service to others by helping them
recognize, cultivate and commit themselves to an active, healthy
lifestyle has been the greatest gift she could ever imagine living
into. Guiding her beloved clients to find their true “core
integrity” is her passion and purpose.
In 2003, Amanda graduated
with her BFA in Dance, focusing on performance and choreography
from UNCG. After graduation, Amanda became a comprehensively
certified Pilates instructor through Power Pilates® NYC. She
is now the owner of her Greensboro based studio, Core Integrity
Pilates, a boutique fitness studio and holistic wellness center,
established in 2005, and still growing strong.
One of Amanda's main goals was to clarify and simplify the path for
those talented teachers in training that would follow in her wake.

The last pieces
of the “whole wellness” puzzle came together when Amanda discovered
the myriad benefits of nutritional cleansing and rebalancing in the
summer of 2015. Working 18-20 hour days 7 days a week can take it's
toll on a body (not to mention mind and spirit!) so finding a
simple solution to help re-set her body's ability to assimilate
nutrition, and then flooding it with the cleanest, most beautifully
sourced superfoods on earth, was (and is) KEY to her survival.
This, in combination with the use of pure essential oils, has had a
