Amy Ellis Smith is a licensed attorney who has been practicing Pilates for 6 years and teaching for 2 years. She loves every aspect of it. All the instructors bring their own individual personalities to their craft, and it is good to try out every teacher to see who challenges you and helps you to improve yourself. Pilates gives me a sense of invigorating calm. I have a dashing husband and 3 handsome boys, who all play sports, and two female rescue dogs.
