Abby

Abby has been teaching Pilates for 17 years. She was a Dance minor at West Chester University in 1997, and began doing Pilates after a terrible car accident nearly halted her dancing forever. Within 2 months, Abby was back on stage and choreographing for her annual Dance Production Workshop. This inspired her to want to become a teacher to share with others the amazing benefits Pilates brought to her life and her body.

Abby participated in the very first Body Precision Teacher Training Program, graduating in 2001 and completing over 700 hours. That same year, she received her Master’s degree in Dance Movement Therapy at Drexel University. Abby worked at Body Precision until she moved to Delaware and opened her own business, Bodies in Balance Pilates Studio, which became a successful studio that was even voted “Best of Delaware”.

Abby moved back to Pennsylvania in 2006, in order to work towards her second Master’s degree in Education, which she completed in 2012 at Holy Family University. 

Abby’s passion for helping others and her education, have made her able to use Pilates, something that saved her own body, to help others become strong, balanced, pain free, and pursue what Joseph Pilates called the “prerequisite to happiness”: physical fitness.
