I have been working with Ed, receiving Muscle Activation Technique treatments, since 2013. He got me active again, after poor body alignment started to restrict my activity levels. I'm very active. I practice martial arts, and I'm over 60. So, getting back to what I love was really important to me.
This year, I underwent a hip replacement. What? you say. That was it? End of being active? No way! Due to all the MAT and posturology work I had done with Ed, my recovery was fast. My continued work with Ed has ensured that I am slowly, but surely, returning to my previous levels of activity. It's awesome!
Originally intent on becoming a physical therapist, Tina was first introduced to Pilates during an internship at The Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City. She was quickly hooked soon realizing that Pilates is not only extremely effective, rewarding to teach as well. Her firm belief that Pilates principles can be incorporated into almost any form of exercise has resulted in her teaching of Pilates-infused boot camps, interval training, and TRX classes. She has an extensive knowledge of anatomy, background in rehabilitation, and years of experience working with diverse body types, fitness goals, and considerations including multiple sclerosis, and pre- and post-natal clients.
Tina's teaching style is informed, precise, and well tailored to the individual at hand. In her eyes, Pilates should be challenging and, above all, never boring!
Tina has a Bachelors in Health Sciences from SUNY Stonybrook
