My first Pilates session was in 2005. Pilates took a central position in my fitness activities in 2007. Pilates instructor training has been with STOTT PILATES® in Seattle (Bodycenter Studios) and Portland (Pacific NW Pilates) as well as MERRITHEW™ classes across the US, Canada and Europe. In addition to my Pilates experience, I have a background in dance. From the age of 14 while growing up in Hawai'i, I studied and performed hula. My hula teaching experience includes seven years of group classes and one-on-one training.
To keep myself strong and healthy in my 50s, I practice Pilates, Yoga, row, walk, hike, run, cycle (Peloton) and do HIIT. Pilates is central to all my workouts. It keeps me injury-free, strong and flexible. Most importantly, it reminds me of the mind-body connection.
I'm the mother to three adult children as well as several cats and dogs, and am happily married to my best friend. My little Havanese dogs, Olivia (Oly), Siya and Yume, are the official greeters at Angelina Pilates. My girls are sweet, clean, and well behaved. We look forward to seeing you in the studio soon.
In addition to movement practices, I am an artist specializing in the handmade: historical photographic processes, constructed imagery collage and paper arts. I received my Master of Fine Arts from Lesley University School of Art & Design in Boston and have been featured in galleries and exhibitions around the country.
