I studied health and physical education at McGill University. My commitment to helping others improve their personal health and fitness complements my love for Pilates and fuelled my passion to become a Pilates instructor.
I trained in the STOTT PILATES® comprehensive stream through Merrithew Health & Fitness™. The STOTT PILATES method appealed to me most because it is the foundation of all the other mindful movement modality options of Merrithew. Even though I have a strong background in anatomy, exercise science and biomechanics, I chose the comprehensive stream, because of the incredible detail and time that is spent on understanding how the STOTT PILATES method complements every body type; from post-rehabilitation to elite athlete clients.
Merrithew Health & Fitness is an internationally recognized brand that employs people in the health and exercise science world. I appreciate that the company constantly strives to integrate modern exercise science and improve the STOTT PILATES method based on proper research and technique.
I was very attracted to the apprenticeship program that is offered through the comprehensive stream. I have been able to create my own client base, and have met many of Merrithew clients through the apprenticeship program. I can now appreciate the amazing experiences and knowledge I have gained through teaching clients, and feel confident to train others having just passed my certification exam!
Merrithew Health & Fitness has incredible Instructor Trainers who dedicate themselves to professional education. They have been so helpful to me and my peers, and are always there to give us advice and help us become great instructors.
I truly love my career choice and what I am doing – what could be better than that? I also feel so much healthier, stronger, and more energized than I have felt in a long time. My husband is particularly happy as well because he gets the benefits of taking Pilates classes with me!
