This studio offers so much more than “classes”. The whole body and mind integration for a better you, is true wellness. I have interacted with both Chantel and Cassandra. I was intimidated by Pilates as a whole thinking I needed to be in a certain shape to accomplish the exercises. Absolutely NOT TRUE. Cassandra was very patient even though I was the only inexperienced one in the class. I did a zoom class. She helped me to feel welcome and made me aware that I can do Pilates in any shape taking time to make sure I could keep up but also keeping her class on time. Thanks for such a great experience!
My passion is helping others look and feel their best! My first love is to teach. I teach how to move not only more efficiently but with a new found love for your body by connecting physically and mentally. I am so grateful to be able to offer a space for healing in my hometown of Herriman. I have been in business for 16 years, this is my 17th year of teaching Pilates. I have always been active as a dance (in another lifetime it feels like now) and a curent runner. I have lived in a body that ranges very often within a 50-100 pounds difference. However, it wasn't until I discovered Pilates, The Rossiter System and The EFT Tapping McDonald Manifestation that I was able to truly shape my body, my life, my career AND become injury and pain free and begin to finally manifest all that I have dreamed of creating. In fact, The Rossiter System is the only thing (medication, therapies, etc) that has completely erased over 2 decades of migraines.
After years of cheerleading, lifting too heavy in the gym and several whiplash injuries, I suffered vertebral bulges and severe disc pain etc. My belief in Pilates is rooted deep, because every time I start feeling the aches and pains of past injuries it is because I haven't been practicing what I preach...and I start taking Pilates classes again in my own studio. ;-)
I understand the body well, I have held several certifications and am a constant student by enrolling in continuiing education...well continuosly. I enroll the intuitive nature in me when watching a student move including the scientific knowledge to best help and progress each person individually.
Teaching Pilates, coaching Rossiter and metoring in EFT Tapping means helping others learn how to move so they can wake up feeling refreshed, get down on the floor and play with their kids, have mental energy to complete work projects and still have endurance at the end of the day for time with their husbands. I offer modifications so any body in any state can do Pilates. I believe in intuitively teaching one how to move while having the knowledge to support it. I know what it takes to achieve goals, after each baby I gained and lost 100, 80 and 60lbs respectively. And gained and lost outside of pregancies as well. I began my Pilates journey as a personal trainer, after learning Pilates and discovering it's benefits, I teach Pilates 100% of the time. I believe in the method. I have seen it change lives time and time again. By specializing in small group, attention to detail can be given to each client each session ensuring results and a super fun workout amongst other like minded individuals. I am committed to creating a space where you can become physically, mentally and emotionally joyful.
When I am not teaching nor tending A Beautiful SurpriZe; I love to spend time with my husband, Sepeti and our 3 children; Darius, Grace & Leila. Being outdoors and soaking up the sun in any capacity is the best pastime for me. I also love the ocean, any ocean, I'm pretty sure I'm part fish even though I'm not the greatest swimmer.
