About Us

So...what are we like?!

Well, we've got big voices and big hearts. And we're all about you. Getting to know you and supporting you.

 

We're passionate about our workouts and love sharing that with you! But we also leave a lot of space for you to personalize the workout in a way that's best for you. We give lots of options and variations, and cheer you on every step of the way. We hold a firm stance that 'fit' has no look. And we focus on how exercise helps our bodies feel and perform.

Meet Dana

Owner, Instructor

An instructor and studio owner for over 10 years, Dana teaches clients how to connect to each movement, and strengthen in new ways!

After an early career in marketing and sales, Dana traded in her Fortune 50 corporate job to teach aerobics (AFAA), and became a pilates instructor soon after (Balanced Body). 

 

Inspired by a long personal history of back pain from disc degeneration, Dana has a strong focus on anatomy and the biomechanics of movement. She's passionate about continuing education, and has taken courses like Pilates for Back Pain, the Pink Ribbon Program, Kinesiology & The Biomechanics of Movement, Correcting Alignment of the Legs, and more.

 

You'll find Dana's workouts are focused on building fitness skills that mimic real life, and bringing balanced strength to the body. She combines the classic and creative, teaches fun sequences and variations, and celebrates every moment of class!
