Michele is the owner of CorSano Pilates™ in Ottawa, Canada, and a MERRITHEW™ Instructor Trainer specializing in STOTT PILATES®. A lifelong athlete and native Californian, Michele was introduced to Pilates in 1996 to improve her performance as a competitive runner. She has been teaching STOTT PILATES since 2005, when she left a successful international healthcare marketing career to pursue her passion for Pilates full-time. Studying under a number of exceptional Master and Lead Instructor Trainers throughout Europe, Israel, and North America, Michele earned her full STOTT PILATES certification in 2008, and was asked to join the company as an Instructor Trainer in 2009. Michele strives to remain highly trained and knowledgeable in the fields of neuroanatomy and biomechanics, in order to optimally support her work with high-level athletes, post-injury and surgery clients, and those with movement and coordination deficits. Available on a freelance basis through the MERRITHEW Corporate Training Centre in Toronto, Michele looks forward to each and every experience teaching and working with other movement professionals.
