Amanda is excited to be back in Nashville after living 12 years in Chicago, where she has been teaching classical Pilates for 7 years. She completed her comprehensive training from Frog Temple Pilates in Chicago, IL (Pilates Center, Boulder CO) and is also a Pre and PostNatal Pilates Specialist™ through The Center for Women’s Fitness under Carolyn Anthony. She is a Nashville native and studied dance at The School of Nashville Ballet, Metro Parks Dance Division, and Vanderbilt University. She began taking Pilates at the age of 12 but really began to fall in love with it as an adult, where she noticed Pilates strengthening her as a dancer while keeping her balanced throughout daily life. Her passion is teaching pre/postnatal mamas the power of Pilates and what it can do for our bodies during and after pregnancy. She received her BA from Columbia College Chicago and has been dancing professionally with Chicago based dance company, The Seldoms, both nationally and internationally. She believes Pilates is truly for everybody and hopes to continue her Pilates practice until she’s 100 and feels passionately about helping others do the same!
