Hillary brings an extensive background in dance to her Pilates training and teaching. She graduated from UC Irvine with a Bachelor’s degree in dance, and performed as a showgirl in Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Japan, and Paris at the world-famous Le Lido. In Paris she started doing Pilates with Romana-trained instructor Phillipe Taupin and just loved it. She felt great after every session, and found the Method helped to condition and streamline her body and get her through twelve shows a week. She then moved to NY to do numerous musical theatre productions, and became a judge for dance competitions throughout the country. Always interested in working out and movement awareness, she continued her Pilates training at different studios around the city. She wanted to deepen her own practice and knowledge and share the benefits with others, and completed the full comprehensive certification in classical Pilates through Power Pilates. She taught privates and classes throughout the city until moving back to Orange County two years ago. Every session is challenging and tailored to the individual, so they leave the studio feeling worked and fabulous!
