Pilates Fundamentals - Level 1/2


This class is taught by:

Mary Herrera

Mary started Pilates as a way to break up her fitness routine and intense nights at the library during college. After graduating from IUPUI, she suffered a leg injury during a soccer game that challenged her mobility for almost 9 months. Once recovered, Mary came back to Pilates as a way to regain her strength, balance, and flexibility. Falling in love with Pilates all over again and finding a new love for barre, Mary went on to get her Bar Effect Certification in 2015 and Peak Pilates Basic Mat Certification in 2016. Mary is excited to continue her journey with Pilates equipment in 2017.

Alba Fernandez-Keys

Alba took her first Pilates class in 2003 and yoga soon after that while searching a low-impact alternative to Brazilian Capoeira. The transition felt very natural as the mindfulness, grace and precision inherent in martial arts transferred seamlessly into a mat practice. She soon found that the Classical Pilates flow was not only extremely challenging but also a beautiful moving meditation. Alba believes that movement keeps the body healthy and teaches us to become sensitive to its changing needs. Her love for Pilates led her to pursue comprehensive (mat and reformer) training through Peak Pilates. She completed her Level 2 certification in early 2016. When not on the mat or reformer you will most likely find Alba riding her bicycle or walking her two mastiffs.

Glenna Nall

Glenna loves the mind-body connection inherent in yoga and Pilates systems of exercise. As an college athlete and still enjoying a bit of competition, Pilates and yoga offer a way to recover and build strength without stressing the body. Glenna comprehensively certified by Peak Pilates. Not stopping there, Glenna completed the Discover*Move*Inspire Masters in Pilates Teaching program (18 month program). The DMI program including a weekend with first generation teacher Lolita SanMiguel, providing additional insight into the history of Pilates.
