Vanessa was introduced to the Pilates method nearly 20 years ago and was hooked from that very first mat class. The Pilates method, she found, is infinitely challenging in and of itself -- but it also instills a sense of physical and mental confidence that prepares one to participate in other types of fitness activity. She was especially drawn to the  key principles of Pilates - control and centering, which helped her manage a demanding  travel schedule during her career in media sales and marketing.   

Eventually, Vanessa decided to leave the office and become a fully certified Pilates instructor. Upon completion of her classical certification in 2010, she began working full-time at some of the top studios in NYC, as well as abroad. She is eager to share the method and all its benefits, both physical and mental, with you!
