My name is Amelia but everyone calls me Amy. I found Pilates in 2009. At that time I had been a Software Engineer for a number of years and had developed debilitating low back pain. At one point I had to take a whole month off of work because I was unable to sit in my chair without pain.
Pilates not only healed my back pain, but it gave me the confidence I never had before, and strengthened my entire body and mind. The transformation was so radical that I decided to pursue Pilates as a career.
I have taken various Pilates certifications and my goal has been to get as close to the source as possible. I studied with Lolita San Miguel, she is one of the only two people in the world certified by Joseph Pilates to teach his method!
Along the way I have also become a teacher trainer, as I have always been eager to help spread this method I know has the power to change lives.
My greatest purpose in what I do is to use Clinical Pilates to help people with persistent pain get back to doing the things they love. This method works again and again, and if you have an injury or persistent pain Clinical Pilates can help you.
