We designed a cute little questionnaire to introduce Pilates Rockstar and our newest team member Holly.
Describe your teaching style in three words.
Motivating, educating, Dynamic.
Where do I start? First and foremost it’s Pilates that has helped me live a more pain free life. As an ex dancer I used to think that aches and pains were just part of life, Pilates has helped educate me to better understand my body and the most optimal way to move. It’s taught me to understand what my body needs and when it needs it and my clients too! I love that it is for EVERYONE! Everyone can benefit from Pilates, from elite athletes to my grandma.
Why mat Pilates/ MVMT?
Mat has always been my fave! It’s all about exploring how your body moves to find connections rather than a machine. Body weight exercises and those with all of the great small props create a free, strong, balanced body.
Was there a moment where Pilates changed your life, or was something in your own self practise pivotal to your choice to want to teach.
After dancing for 20 years I was baffled when I discovered muscles I never knew existed in my core from Pilates. An area I had always struggled to strengthen. With that came an absolute passion for delivering that knowledge to everyone!
There are lots of Pilates studios popping up. Why MVMT?
For me it was a no brainer. I had been to MVMT every time I was in town taking Barre teacher trainings. It was really crazy when I found out Elise has been to my classes too! I think Elise is incredibly talented, I’ve met a lot of instructors, attended classes all over the world and there is something about Elise and MVMT that is really special! I am totally sold on MVMT and Elise’s creativity combined with a continued search for knowledge is an amazing combo! It’s how I like to move and move others!
Dogs or Cats?
Dogs! I love cats too but I have been known to see dogs across the street and be caught waving to them. Haha I’m obsessed!
Deeeefinitely the ball! It helps me hit every. Little. Spot!
