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.
a series of exercises performed on a mat, which strengthen the core muscles of the body, giving you strength and flexibility at the same time.
The Mat exercises are layered in as the body strengthen, changes and progresses in the Pilates work. When thinking of the "CORE" you want to think.....CORE of an apple.... The exercises will tone from shoulders and upper body down though your stomach, hips, buttocks and legs. These exercises will improve your posture and give you long lean muscles. Your posture and flexibility will improve as your sense of control and awareness over your body improves.
Some classes may use Pilates accessories and props, such as hand and ankle weights, bars and Magic Circles. Pilates Mats and accessories are provided.
Anyone wanting to try this program for the first time, 3 private pilates sessions are required.
