After a severe childhood accident left her with chronic and debilitating pain, Victoria (Tori) was lucky enough to find Pilates as the best possible way to keep her body (and mind) intact while doing her undergraduate work at The New School here in New York. The changes Pilates created in her body inspired her to pursue teaching. Victoria completed a comprehensive training program through Core Pilates NYC in 2009. Since then she has gone on to teach in some of New York’s most prestigious studios. After a year of teaching full time, she was inspired to deepen her understanding of the body by enrolling in the Swedish Institute’s Massage Therapy program. After receiving her diploma in December of 2011 and her license in March 2012, Victoria loves bringing her experience and expertise to Real Pilates with intense, deeply focused and classical-style workouts.
