STELLA (Pilates) is passionate about bringing out the joy, focus and strength benefits of Pilates. In her fourteen years of practice and four years of teaching, Stella has helped people to reach their health and fitness goals regardless of age or injury. She holds three certifications in the classical and Physical Mind methods and has studied under master teachers such as Rebecca Leone, Virginia Nicholas and Heather Erdmann. Having suffered from two broken vertebrae in her own spine, Stella's classes focus on proper form and fully-integrated core strength for a fully functional movement experience. Although Stella has lived, performed, and taught Pilates in three continents, she is happy to now call New York City home and looks forward to working with you!
