Please, please, please have more classes taught by Victoria!! She is firm in her exercises/instructions, but gentle in her approach. She truly knows each student and ensures that they are in the correct position and have the proper form. She also makes sure to offer (to the entire class, not just single students out) several alternative positions for each move, which makes me feel more welcome. Each class I take with her leaves me loving Pilates more and more. If she taught a class at 5:30 am I would get my but out of bed to take it!!
Merilee, originally from Seattle, WA, moved to San Diego after graduating from Seattle University with a degree in Marketing. After years of gazing down at the computer, stress and fatigue she started to develop lower back issues. A friend took her to a Pilates class and she was hooked instantly. Her pain started disappearing and soon it was gone completely. Pilates had changed Merilee’s life, and she knew that she had to use the energy she got from her new practice to help other people suffering as well.
Merilee has been working as an instructor at the Pilates Room since January of 2017. In January 2019, she received STOTT Pilates Recognition of Certification for Matwork & Reformer. She currently taking the required continuing education courses annually to maintain this certification.
