Deb

Deb began teaching exercise during the fitness craze of the 80’s all decked out in spandex, leg warmers and high tops! She was an “aerobics” instructor first and has continued to build fitness into her life over the years.

Today the foundation of all Deb's teaching is Pilates. Pilates teaches balance, grace, strength and mind-body awareness. It also teaches people to move their bodies in a healthy and safe manner, both on and off their mats.

My certifications include Stott Pilates Mat, Stott Reformer trained and Schwinn Indoor Cycling. I am also trained in Stott Pilates Special Injuries and Populations and Stability Chair. I am currently taking the Stott Cadillac training with a goal of becoming Comprehensively Certified in the near future. I teach Pilates Mat, Reformer and related equipment classes, Barre, Ride, Trx, Kettlebells and Short Burst Training. I have been teaching at Center since it began and am deeply grateful for this beautiful community of students, teachers and friends.

My favorite quote inspired by my mentor Christina Andersen is “Life is not about finding yourself: life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw.



Deb instructs the following:
  • PILATES MAT
  • Pilates benefits the spine by creating and supporting a healthy core and posture. Each class will emphasize a full body stengthening workout utilizing the principles of the STOTT Pilates method. All levels.

  • BARRE
  • BARRE FUSION combines ballet barre exercises with the stretching and breathwork of yoga and the core conditioning principles of Pilates. This is a STRENGTH TRAINING class with some low impact cardio built in. This is an ALL LEVELS class - great for people who struggle with balance and great for people who really want to feel "the burn"!

  • LIFT
  • Strengthen and tone the body in this power class. Exercises that build strength and definition in upper and lower body muscles will be the focus.

  • REFORM: CLASSIC
  • Get the benefits of private training on the pilates equipment, and a fraction of the cost! Small group sessions allow for personal attention and corrections, but give a fun, energetic workout that will improve posture, core strength and flexibility. 
     
    NOTE: Students must be able to change their own spring and manage their own props. Prior Pilates Reformer experience is required.  

    LATE CANCELS LESS THAN 12 HOURS WILL BE CHARGED FOR CLASS.


  • REFORM: POWER
  • Taking our Classic Reformer classes up a notch, our REFORM: POWER small group classes are challenging, fast-paced and fun! You'll move through a variety of equipment: reformers, chairs, and matwork to boost your heart rate up, power up your strength and increase ROM and Flexiblity.

    These classes are taught in a small group setting for maximum efficiency. Your body will be fit and functional.
