In 2015, Deb stumbled into the world of Pilates, taking an introductory Pilates 101 class with Jamie Morgan. She became fascinated by everything Pilates and applied the principles to her private practice clients. In 2017, Deb began Balanced Body training and completed all the reformer and mat class modules. You might see her name on the schedule as a sub for mat and reformer classes.
After attending a Pfilates (pelvic floor Pilates) workshop at Pilates on Tour in April 2018, Deb returned with a plan to teach "Take Control of your Pelvic Floor Fitness." Her four week instructional class uses the principles of plyometrics and the control of Pilates to increase pelvic floor activity by up to 10x a standard kegel exercise. This class is by registration only. More info here or contact Deb. Once you have completed the four week course, you are ready to drop-in to the maintenance class at 7:00 pm on Mondays.
