Zhanna Strilets

Zhanna StriletsI came to a Pilates class after having my child just to get back in shape and found that it was so much more. I practiced Pilates for many years before I decided to become an Instructor and share my experience and passion for movement and well-being with others.

I am always fascinated how functional Pilates movements are and how much better you are at connecting to your body. Being a trail runner, I quickly realized how important a strong core is to any kind of movement. I am so excited to help you learn the Pilates principles and fundamental movements to discover how strong, balanced and connected your body can be from the inside out.
