Teacher Description

Deb first discovered Pilates Matwork in 1998 while looking to balance out overuse injuries from running, weightlifting, and teaching fitness classes. After quickly seeing that adding Pilates several times a week she could enjoy other activities, like gardening, without experiencing back pain, she became a lifelong learner of the Pilates Method and other complementary movement.

Deb returned to Pennsylvania in 2001 and continued her Pilates Education. She completed the Masters Program at The Pilates Center, Boulder, CO in 2012, the comprehensive teacher training program at Body Precision in Rosemont, PA in 2007, and has been a certified member of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) since 2005.

Favorite Joe Pilates quote:
“If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old; if it’s completely flexible at 60 you are young.”
