Ann’s Pilates journey began at the Boston Conservatory, where she received her BFA in Dance Performance. Pilates immediately alleviated the chronic pain from acute scoliosis and brought stability to her hyper mobile joints. In 2001, she began teaching Classical Mat work in NYC while dancing professionally. It wasn’t long before Ann became comprehensively trained through Power Pilates in NYC with Bob Liekins, Susan Moran-Perich, and Lesley Levy. She had the pleasure of apprenticing under Shari Berkowitz when the Vertical Workshop was in Beverly Hills. Ann has taught in LA, NYC, and Boston over the last 15 years. Ann believes “every-body” deserves to function at it’s happiest available state. That calls for practice and dedication to the conversation between the body and the mind that this incredible technique presents us with.
