Internationally certified Pilates Instructor and based out of Venice Beach, California, Anita is certified by Balanced Body Pilates and has decades of experience as a dancer, yogini, avid hiker, and lover of all things outdoors. Through her experience in various forms of movement and expression, Anita’s classes are designed to integrate Pilates principles of alignment while exploring the various ways our core muscles keep us centered and aligned in day to day activities - How we engage in other forms of exercise, sit at a desk, hold our children, hold our groceries. Exercises will access your deep core muscles and give you a great workout, while maintaining alignment and presence. You will receive tools to utilize maximum efficiency in a movement, while minimizing stress on the body. Anita is known for combining a unique blend of stretching, core work, and sequencing into her classes, allowing participants to explore movement in different ways - and most importantly, to keep it light and playful. You can find Anita teaching group Pilates mat classes and offering private sessions throughout Los Angeles.
